Vintage Pens: 3100 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3100: Parker: 51
Hip, hip, hooray! The class of 1942 celebrated in style with this first-year 1941 Parker 51! Well, partly first year 51. Marketing material for the grand release of the Parker 51 in 1941 said that the pen was 10 years ahead of its time, which is why it was called the 51. Only first-year pens were given the aluminum tail jewel in the blind cap. Although the imprint seems to have worn off, the "Class of '42" engraving seems to be a nice verification of age. We are a little perplexed that the pen looks more teal blue than cedar blue, as would be appropriate. The sterling silver cap, which is in great condition, is a later model replacement cap. It still has a blue-diamond clip, but the jewel is plastic grey pearl--not aluminum. This vintage pen's diaphragm has been replaced, and it is in good working order. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. Light wear can be found in all the usual places. No cracks or dents. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 0034 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 0034: Parker: Duofold
We think this is quite possibly one of the prototypes for the Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen made c. 1925 or '26. We cannot guarantee it, but the aluminum swivel holder is the main clue, as Parker never mass produced it. It is not marked, and it was most likely custom machined. The hard rubber version of it went into production in 1926. The hard-rubber Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen is in great condition. The imprint is practically perfect, except for fading out on the very far right side. The ink feed is a "Christmas Tree." The 14k nib writes a fine-medium line. The tail is in perfect condition, and there is no brassing on its gold ring. The gold button shows no brassing. The pen base has no chips or cracks that we can see. The felt on the bottom was replaced. The pen holder is a chocolatey brown but in good working order. The spring underneath it still pushes back. This pen has been fully restored and works wonderfully. The pen measures 19cm, and the base measures 15cm X 9cm X 2cm.
Vintage Pens: 2895 Esterbrook Cracked Ice Light Ivory
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $799.99
Vintage Pens: 2895: Esterbrook: Cracked Ice Light Ivory
Esterbrook fans can really geek out on this gorgeous pen and pencil SET! Yep. It is nearly a perfect Esterbrook Cracked Ice Dollar Pen in "light ivory." No actual cracks. It is stunning. Fully restored with a new ink sac, its only flaws are nearly invisible to the eye. However, you can feel some light scratches and shallow chew marks near the tail. The only discoloration appears to be a little ink staining that got between the inner cap and outer cap. The pencil is in perfect working order with a 1.1mm lead and a hardened eraser under the tail cap. The fountain pen's nib is the older, rarer 3000 series! It is a 3556 Osmiridium Tip that is a little wonky in the photo and scratchy, but it is so rare that it is worth taking to a better nib meister than us. Click the headline for close-ups.
Vintage Pens: 2904 LeBoeuf #8
Filling Mechanism: Sleeve Filler)
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $1,500.00  Was: $1,750.00
Vintage Pens: 2904: LeBoeuf: #8
If you are really looking to dazzle at the next pen club meeting or impress your friends online, how about this ultra rare oversized LeBoeuf #8 vintage pen. One of the first companies to perfect celluloid pen production, this model from the very early 1930s is an impressive light ivory color with a butterscotch vein running through it. It has a few spots of discoloration, but it is in much better condition than a lot of early ivory celluloids. Fill the pen by sliding the entire barrel back to reveal a fully restored squeeze bar system. No cracks in the celluloid, light wear, some brassing on the clip. The original 14k gold nib sports a crack running from the section up to the 8. Click the headline for a close-up. The nib writes a dry, extra-fine line well without pressure but gets scratchy in a hurry when you add any pressure. 13cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2650 Namiki Pilot Vanishing Point
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2650: Namiki Pilot: Vanishing Point
Almost New Old Stock, this is a prized mustard yellow Pilot Vanishing Point fountain pen. It comes complete with its box and papers. It looks as if someone engaged the cartridge it came with, and that is all the ink it has seen. We flushed it with a sonic cleaning. The only think missing is the converter, but it does have that little metal cartridge cover. The gold nib is marked fine, but it writes like an extra-fine razor blade. 14cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2001 Mont Blanc Georg Solti Limited Edition
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $599.99  Was: $699.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2001: Mont Blanc: Georg Solti Limited Edition
One of the greatest conductors of the 20th century, Sir Georg Solti dazzled orchestra lovers all over the world. Born in Budapest, Solti would direct the orchestras of Munich, Frankfurt, Vienna, London and Chicago, where he spent the last 20 years of his career. (Hey, we got a little hometown pride in that sorta thing.) Mont Blanc made the limited edition Georg Solti pen as part of its Donations Series, using part of the proceeds to help youth music programs. This luxury pen appears to be like-new and never used. It comes complete with its huge box, booklets and a playing cards for Solti's favorite pastime: bridge. The cards are unopened. The only flaw with any part of the set is that two of the box lid corners are torn. Unfortunately, the box was far too large to show completely in the photo.
Pre-Owned Pens: 1998 Mont Blanc Patron of the Arts Marquise de Pompadour
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $1,750.00  Was: $1,999.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 1998: Mont Blanc: Patron of the Arts Marquise de Pompadour
"When Madame Pompadour was on the ballroom floor, said all the gentleman obviously, 'The lady has a well developed...personality.'" More than the bawdy lyrics sung by Dorothy Lamour in the Hope & Crosby "Road to Utopia," the real Marquise de Pompadour was the extremely clever mistress and confidant of France's King Louis XV. Her mastery of court intrigue and support of the arts remains unparalleled. In 2001 the world's top luxury brand paid homage to her with the Mont Blanc Patron of the Arts Marquise de Pompadour limited edition pens. Exquisitely designed, Mont Blanc paired with the porcelain artists at Meissen to create this pen. Click the headline for close-ups. Guaranteed authentic, our's comes complete with papers and boxes--there is a chip on the back of the wooden box. Amazingly, it was actually used. We have cleaned and flushed the pen, which works great, but there is light surface wear on the barrel with some lightly rubbed in wear spots on the piston blind cap.
Pre-Owned Pens: 0984 Waterman Edson
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $189.99  Was: $399.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 0984: Waterman: Edson
Commanding attention is what the Waterman Edson ballpoint pen does best! It's regal translucent blue barrel and golden twist cap and trim will turn heads, but it is luxury pen's performance that will hold your attention rapt. Its weight and girth are easy to maneuver while gliding the ballpoint ink along the page with a momentum uniquely its own. Waterman is extremely proud of this premier flagship design, and so are we. There is some light wear to the barrel and cap, and some folks might not like the light but obvious scratches to the golden tail cap. These scratches aren't deep, but they plow through the "frosted" gold design. We still think it is an excellent pen. Comes loaded with a working Waterman ballpoint refill. 14.6cm.
