Vintage Pens: 4527 Parker Vacumatic Set
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $699.99
Vintage Pens: 4527: Parker: Vacumatic Set
In 1936, Fred & Ginger lit up the silver screen in the classic "Swingtime," King Edward VIII abdicated the British throne to marry an American divorcé, television broadcasts first began, Jesse Owens showed up the Nazis in Berlin, Joe DiMaggio was a rookie, FDR won a second term and this Parker Vacumatic standard set in burgundy was made. It was an elegant era, and this pen in many respects marks the pinnacle of art deco design. This particular set is in excellent condition. No cracks, maybe 1% brassing, no scratches, restored and working. Its two-tone 14k has some cosmetic issues. Click the headline to see close-ups. It writes an extra-fine line with a little flex but not much. The matching pencil works great in excellent condition and comes with spare 1.1mm leads. Pen measures 12.8cm capped.
Inkwells and Blotters: 4496 Wooden
Era: 1980-present
Price: $25.00
Inkwells and Blotters: 4496: Wooden
No fountain pen collector's desk is complete without a classic rocker blotter. We have a fun little wooden model that fits any desk. Made of wood, it looks quite handsome, though it does have wear. Look closely at the photo and you'll see little chips around the edges. There also is a dark stain on the top plate of the blotter, but it blends in if you aren't looking closely. 8cm (L) X 5cm (W) X 7cm (H)
Vintage Pens: 4458 Parker Duofold Jr. Desk Pen
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 4458: Parker: Duofold Jr. Desk Pen
Mandarin yellow Parker Duofolds are highly sought and beautiful working artifacts of the Roaring '20s. This Parker Duofold Jr. Desk Pen is particularly special because it has a much harder to find 14k gold "Lucky Curve" nib! Click the headline for a close-up. You'll write a very nice medium line. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Plus, it sports a "Christmas Tree" inkfeed. We do not have a desk base for you. It seems as if people either have the base or the pen but not both. Now you can finally complete your set. There is a little chocolate hazing on the section but not the taper. Unfortunately, the taper has some wear. The barrel is mostly clear. 18.2cm.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4382 Visconti Voyager Convertible
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Era: 1980-present
Price: $175.00  Was: $199.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4382: Visconti: Voyager Convertible
Coral is always a highly sought color for pen collectors, and these Visconti Voyager Convertibles from 1998 are not easy to find. Convertible? Unscrew the golden nose cone on this pen and you can put in a rollerball, felt-tip or Parker-style ballpoint refill! This pen still includes it Parker-ballpoint conversion kit! We installed a new rollerball refill, but we showed off the pen with a dried felt-tip refill for the visual. Cosmetically, this preowned luxury pen has a few issues. The cap is a shade darker than the barrel. No cracks or scratches, but the metal trim has a lot of issues. The cap band looks like the bottom lip of the band is coming up a little and has some spots of corrosion. That goes for the top logo button on the cap, too. We've cleaned them up as best we can, but it still isn't perfect. You can see the corrosion on the metal warranty tube, too. 14cm capped.
Pencil: 4377 Faber Castell Graf von Faber Castell
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1980-present
Price: $125.00  Was: $149.99
Pencil: 4377: Faber Castell: Graf von Faber Castell
Unusual branding is the hallmark of the flagship writing instruments from Faber-Castell. It is a little confusing that the top-of-the-line for Faber-Castell is called "Graf von Faber-Castell." Yet, these are really amazing writers. This pencil is made of ebony wood and sterling silver. Twist the tail cap to advance .5mm leads. Pull off the tail end cap to reveal the eraser, which is a little used. No wear blemishes the ebony wood, but the silver shows light wear from use. (Breathe on silver and it shows wear. LOL!) 14.1cm.
Pencil: 4363 Conklin Rolled-Gold Pencil
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Pencil: 4363: Conklin: Rolled-Gold Pencil
We aren't sure what Conklin called this pinstriped pencil made of rolled gold, but it is a very handsome taste of the 1920s. It is marked "Patented July 6, 1920." We suspect is was made a couple years later. This pen is a little more slender than the 4B and 5V models, but it is the same length. New Old Stock, it is dent and damage free. Twist the nose cone to advance and retract the 1.1mm lead. Pull off the tail blind cap to reveal a hardened eraser. Unscrew the eraser to reveal some spare leads. 13.3cm capped.
Pencil: 4362 Conklin 5V
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $99.99
Pencil: 4362: Conklin: 5V
Jazz Age style and sophistication shines through on this new old stock Conklin 5V pencil. A "w" pattern flys down the barrel of this vintage pencil on finely wrought pinstripes. Marked rolled gold, all of the imprints and design features are strong and crisp. Patented on July 6, 1920, we suspect this one was made more likely in 1924 or '25. Twist the nose cone to advance and retract the 1.1mm lead. Pull off the tail cap to reveal an unused hardened eraser. Unscrew the eraser to reveal spare leads. No brassing, dents or scratches. Looks like it just left the factory in Toledo, Ohio. 13.3cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4297 Omas Legni Pregiati
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $449.99  Was: $499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 4297: Omas: Legni Pregiati
Exotic woods were the theme of several limited edition Omas pens. This Omas Legni Pregiati is made of a dense South American wood known as Lignum Vitae. Beautifully cut and lacquered to offer the traditional Omas piston filling mechanism, you'll find this a very light-weight and delightful writing instrument. Sporting an 18k gold nib with platinum plated accents, it writes a fine line. Only a little chip in the lacquer visible in the photo at the top of the cap mars this pen's striking beauty. Omas even considered the dangers of ink staining the outside of the wooden section and barrel, so it included a special black plastic sleeve to protect the pen when filling it. Finally, its presentation box is inspired by "the 'box of woods' made by master shipwrights as a gift to the buyer of a new ship." 14.9cm capped.
