Pencil: 5715 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99
Pencil: 5715: Parker: Duofold
Parker Duofold pencils are remarkably made and engineered devices. Nearly 100 years after its manufacture, this black-and-pearl design still works great. Senior length, this pen is a great sample of these vintage pencils. It has some noticeable wear from use. The tail topper has a little denting from a drop and a few little dimples on its side. Traces of brassing can be seen. It writes well with a 1.1mm lead that advances smoothly with a twist of the tail topper. 14cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5712 Franklin-Christoph 46
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $249.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5712: Franklin-Christoph: 46
You just can't overlook the stunning beauty of the green-and-quartz pebble design of this beautiful Franklin-Christoph 46 fountain pen. In near-mint condition it steals everyone's attention. The only think that might impress you more is that it has a 14k gold semi-flex nib. We think it was intended to be a full-flexi, but it feels firm fine when we write with it. You'll need to engage the flex with a little more intentionality. This oversized pen also includes its original standard international converter. No pocket clip on the cap. That is just how these came. 13.5cm capped. Click the headline for close-ups.
Pencil: 5709 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $149.99
Pencil: 5709: Parker: Duofold
Dignified and confident is the aura of this senior-sized Parker Duofold pencil in a burgundy and black design. It advances and retracts a 1.1mm lead with a smooth, easy twist of the tail cap. It has a little wear, but there are no cracks and minimal brassing. The streamlined black topper has a few little nicks from drops and such. A very nicely engraved signature graces the back of the cap. It appears to read "Charles M. Auriett." The last name is difficult to read; the "A" is definite the U, R, and I all look the same. Maybe it is really "Auuett," but that seems unlikely. Possibly "Arruett." Although nicely engraved, it is easy to overlook by anyone watching you write. No eraser but some spare leads. 13.1cm.

Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5688: Cross: Townsend
American-made luxury pens are a rare treat in modern manufacturing, but this Cross Townsend rollerball pen was a staple of the 1990s. Gold-plated sophistication makes this pre-owned pen a must. Our pen shows some wear from use, but there are no dents, cracks or engravings. The cap has a tight snap closure. We include a free refill with this classic pen. 15cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5489 Kaweco Art Sport Metallic Turquoise
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $199.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5489: Kaweco: Art Sport Metallic Turquoise
Metallic Turquoise is really stunning on this limited edition Kaweco Art Sport fountain pen. It is in like-new condition with minimal, if any, wear. These pens only use standard international cartridges, and this one comes with an unopened one in its barrel. Seemingly undipped or used, the steel nib does not appear to have ever seen ink. As such, we haven't dipped it and given it a spin. Included is a Kaweco tin that has space for two pens. Pen measures 10.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5665 Sheaffer Imperial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 5665: Sheaffer: Imperial
Sheaffer Imperial pens remained in production for nearly 40 years. They were one of the last of the great golden era fountain pens released by Sheaffer. We believe this stunning Sheaffer Imperial to be from the mid-1970s. Close to mint condition, this rarer sterling silver model sports a barley corn pattern. You have to look insanely hard under the right light to find a kiss of a dimple in the cap. The rest is pretty surprisingly nice. It comes with its original aerometric style converter, and it also can take Sheaffer cartridges. You will write a nice broad line with its 18k gold inlaid nib. We actually filled this one up and wrote with it all the way dry. The nib is smooth, but it does have some hard starts, which can get annoying. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5656 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $349.99
Vintage Pens: 5656: Parker: Duofold
If you are seeking perfection in a black streamlined senior Parker Duofold, this is a close as you might ever get. No cracks, no brassing, no scratches, no wear. The only flaw we can find is a slight impression over the "UO" in the Duofold imprint, and that was likely a factory-made kiss of imperfection...the mortality that wasn't drained from Achilles' heel when he was held over the fire as an infant. This vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac, for anyone who might want to take it of a museum for a spin. There's a "Christmas tree" inkfeed, you will write a medium line with the 14k gold nib. It feels a little "sharp" and dry when written with on a dip. 13.1cm capped.
