Vintage Pens: 4654 Esterbrook Transition
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler   Fountain Pen Nib Size: O
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 4654: Esterbrook: Transition
Unique Esterbrooks are especially fun pens. We hope you get a big kick out of this Esterbrook Transition fountain pen for both its history and its nib. In the late 1940s when Esterbrook was transitioning from its Dollar Pens to J-model pens, it had a lot of leftover Dollar Pen barrels. Instead of letting them go to waste, the company simply paired the old barrels with the new J-model caps! The cap on this pen has a non-traditional 3-line black plastic jewel. All the more fun and fascinating is that this pen comes with a rare oblique 2314-M nib! When you find the sweet spot, it is a smooth nib with a stub quality meant for right-handed people to make their writing really pop! Click the headline for a close-up. 12.3cm capped.

Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 4648: Mabie Todd (Swan): 142/1
Bordering true flexi, this semi-flex Mabie Todd Swan 142/1 is a remarkable vintage pen. Fully restored, we installed a new ink sac. It has a chased black hard rubber cap and barrel. The cap is a little more discolored with chocolate hazing than the barrel. It also sports beautifully engraves initials and a deep scar visible in the photo. Click the headline for close-ups. The pen is long and about as wide as a Waterman 54...wider and easier to grip than the 52. Its imprints are sharp and easy to read. Its 14k gold #2 nib is scratched up on top, but it writes very well with flex from fine to 1mm. There's a little feedback, which is expected on many semi-flex nibs. 13.8cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 4650: Omas: Milord Vermeil
More than just an awesome Omas Milord pen, this is a vermeil version with a gold-plated sterling silver tail cap. This is even an older model! It uses the earlier Omas refills, and comes with a working black refill. No dents or deep scratches mar the pen, but it looks as if the silver is starting to show through the gold in places. It comes with a nice leather pouch in excellent condition. 13.9cm.
Pencil: 0566 Sheaffer 400
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $49.99
Pencil: 0566: Sheaffer: 400
Vintage pencils make math and crossword puzzles way more fun. Take this Sheaffer 400 pencil for example. It is an early devotee of the .9mm lead. You advance and retract it with a simple twist of the tail cap. It has some wear from use, but most of us do after 80 years. The worst of it is a few little scratches in the nose cone, which you can see in the photo. The carmine red pattern is one of the rarer color schemes from this era. The clip is on tightly. It no longer has its eraser, but it comes with a spare lead. 13.3cm.
Inkwells and Blotters: 4640 Porcelain Inkwell
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
Inkwells and Blotters: 4640: Porcelain: Inkwell
Add some beauty and style to your desk with this porcelain inkwell with a floral design. Click the headline, and you can see that you lift the lid of the inkwell by the yellow rose to dip and fill your pen. A reserve dish behind the inkwell portion is for stamps, back when your could tear them from a perforated sheet and had to lick them. No cracks or chips mar the porcelain, but the gold piping along the edges is worn or missing in many places. There is what likely was part of a maker's mark on the bottom in the gold paint for the edging, but it, too, is mostly missing and indistinguishable. The flowers are all perfect. We dont't actually know when this was made, but the design suggests it might have been for a dip pen, yet the floral pattern seems a little more modern, which is why we guess the 1920s. However, we are not experts on porcelain inkwells and it could be earlier or later. International shipping might require more money than the site will ask. L: 14cm X W: 8cm X H: 7.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 4641 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 4641: Parker: 51
Nobody's perfect. Sometimes we just can't get the blind cap on a Parker 51 to line-up perfectly with the barrel after we replace the diaphragm. This is one such vintage pen. It works well, it is just a little off from what it should be. Plus, you can see dents in the gold-filled cap. Nevertheless, the pen still works well. You will write a medium line with a little feedback. Enjoy a bargain on a classic pen. 13.9cm capped.
