Pre-Owned Pens: 5395: LeBoeuf: Greg Norman
You're gonna need a bigger pen case. That's right "The Shark" Greg Norman has his own limited edition LeBoeuf fountain pen. Ours is numbered 0668. This is the modern revival of the classic LeBoeuf pen company that first invented the celluloid pen. The PGA champion's autograph is on the black cap of this otherwise gold plated pen sporting an alternating design of plain stripes and a barley pattern. At the top of the cap is an opal, perhaps a nod to his Aussie roots. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. Click the headline for a close-up. You can fill it with its included screw-in standard international converter or like cartridges. The pen looks great overall, though it has a little light shop wear. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5394 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $999.99
Vintage Pens: 5394: Parker: Duofold
Almost Perfect...but not quite. We adore this lapis blue Parker Duofold Senior set. Its blue is breath-taking, especially in the light. However, the barrel is likely about 2 shades darker than the blue of the cap. Click the headline for a close up. The white is still very white in the barrel and cap. The blue is just a couple shades darker. You can clearly see the imprint. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. No cracks or deep scratches in the barrel. There is a scratch you can see on the section near the nib. No brassing on the pen. The 14k gold nib is paired with an original "Christmas tree" ink feed. You will write a very firm, dry fine line with a little feedback. However, it feels to us if this nib just needs some breaking in from use. The more you write with it, the wetter and smoother it will likely get. The matching pencil is lighter in the barrel but it seems to have seen much more use with brassing and some dimples in the metal trim.
Vintage Pens: 5392 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 5392: Parker: Duofold
As Charlie Brown points out, even the ugly tree in the lot needs love. Same goes for pens. Our streamlined senior Parker Duofold in the black-and-pearl motif has a lot of issues. Fully restored with a new ink sac, you can see how heavily discolored it is and how much brassing it has. Worse still, the barrel threads are cracked. However, the section still seems snug in the barrel. Its 14k gold nib is a little scratchy but it is ready to write and give you a senior Duofold thrill or two. 13.1cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5388 Parker Jotter Set
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5388: Parker: Jotter Set
It is difficult to think of Parker Jotter pens as vintage. Oh, sure. They came out in the mid-1950s, but they are still in production today. These 4 pens are a little bit vintage and a little bit modern. The olive colored Jotter has brass threads and a button that has a domed top. The off-white Jotter has brass threads and a stamped inset on the button. The blue and burgundy Jotters have plastic threads and stamped inset button tops. All the stamps are identical with the arrow through a hoop Parker logo. All of the pens seem to work well with new blue or black refills. All of the pens show some wear, with the blue pen showing the most wear. Only the off-white pen's clicker is a little finicky.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5383 Cross Century Pen Set
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $49.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5383: Cross: Century Pen Set
Cross updated its Cross Century pen line with a clipless "For Her." It has a love floral ring around the twist caps on both the ballpoint pen and pencil. Each pen is gold-filled, and neither seems to show much wear from use. The packaging is complete from when new, and this might very well be a New Old Stock set. The ballpoint refill works well, but the mechanism is a little stiff from lack of use. The pencil is in good working order.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5374 Rotring Millennium
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $125.00
Pre-Owned Pens: 5374: Rotring: Millennium
Remember what a big deal we thought the Millennium would be? Everything was branded with millennium, such as this Rotring Millennium "ArtPen." Rotring vowed to make these through the year 2000. This is the 1996 edition. It appears to be New Old Stock. No trace of wear and the nib doesn't seem to be dipped. You get all of its original boxes and papers. The cap was hand lacquered and looks better than this photo can convey. Click the headline for close-ups. Its two-tone nib looks as if it is gold, but it is not marked such. It is marked "M" for medium, but we have not dipped it to preserve its newness. It fills with standard international cartridges. It comes with the original empty dummy cartridge and an unopened but dried out cartridge. 17.8cm capped.
Inkwells and Blotters: 5357 Hand Painted French Inkwell
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $99.99
SOLD!
Inkwells and Blotters: 5357: Hand Painted: French Inkwell
Sacre bleu! We just obtained this lovely, hand-painted ceramic inkwell that was made in France. We have no idea who painted it or how old it actually is. Click the headline for the only clue we have to go on. Nevertheless, it is a very nice orange base color with a hint of brown that is seemingly painted in gold leaf with a floral design. The inkwell reservoir is small, maybe the size of 2 thimbles, holding maybe 3 or 4 thimbles full of ink. The porcelain or ceramic is in good condition, but you can see some places, especially around where the lid rests, where the paint has worn off.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5278 Michel Perchin Fabergé Imperial Russia Green
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $3,999.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5278: Michel Perchin: Fabergé Imperial Russia Green
This green Michel Perchin Fabergé Imperial Russia fountain pen is quite possibly the most beautiful and luxurious writing instrument we have ever offered. Look at how the hand-carved guilloché glitters under than hand-painted polished glass enamel. Simply stunning! Its cap and barrel started as a block of solid sterling silver. Once it was carved into shape by hand, it was guilded in gold and the green-glass enamel was painstakingly applied layer by layer. Made the same way the Fabergé eggs were made, it is more than just a pen. It is both jewelry and art. Numbered 97 of only 500, our preowned luxury pen was never used and comes complete with all of its papers and boxes.
