Vintage Pens: 5046 Sterling Silver Repousse
Filling Mechanism: Dip
Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Classy, elegant, sophisticated. Dip pen fans will love this sterling silver repousse antique pen. We suspect it comes from around the turn of the 20th century. It could be older. The holder is marked "Sterling," but there is no formal branding. Ergo, we don't know who made it. There are a couple little marks on the pen, and one of the silver edges where the nib goes in has split just a teeny-tiny amount. We included a "new" Esterbrook Bronze Falcon 048 nib, which is NOS. You will write a firm, smooth line from extra-fine to about 1mm. This is semi-flex and far from a wet noodle. Click the headline for close-ups. Yes, our cat is holding the pen down for a nib close-up, and, no, he is not for sale with the pen. 18.5cm.

Celebrating 75 years of continuous operation, Omas released this special Omas 75 Paragon fountain pen. It is a sleek, elegant black pen with a uniquely branded, two-tone 18k gold nib. You also will see a special branding mark on the back of the cap. Our pre-owned pen was gently used, showing light wear. No cracks, deep scratches or other obvious blemishes...just little minor marks. Its piston works smoothly, and its nib is a gusher! Marked "M" for medium, this nib smoothly lays down a broad to double broad line. Click the headline for close-ups. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5044 Waterman 222
Filling Mechanism: Eyedropper
Fountain Pen Nib Size: BB
Antique pens just keep coming. Here is an ultra rare Waterman 222 Barleycorn pen made of sterling silver and ebonite. Made around 1905, this is a classic taper cap eyedropper. Best of all, the cap and barrel are in incredibly good condition. No cracks or dents. A script name is engraved into the cartouche on the barrel. It is 5 letters that seem to start with a J and end with a Z. You can unscrew the section to fill the pen, though we don't recommend using a pen this delicate and rare. Click the headline for a close up of the rare, beautiful and problematic 14k gold nib. This has an early star logo!. It also has a bad crack coming out of the breather hole. It writes double broad on a dip with some feedback. 14.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5050 Waterman 0322
Filling Mechanism: Eyedropper
Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Grail pens such as this Waterman 0322 "Chased" pen from the early 1900s are intoxicatingly rare. What has become known as "repousse" in many pens Waterman called "chased" in its early turn-of-the-century catalogs. This taper cap with gold-filled overlay is a once-in-a-lifetime pen for us. Its 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to 1mm flexi line, but the slender hard-rubber pen is so delicate, we don't really recommend writing with it much. Filling this eyedropper pen will be difficult as the section seems firmly screwed together and not wanting to separate. Engraved on the barrel cartouche are the initials E.H.L. You can see a couple bite marks on the end of the barrel and tip of the taper. Its biggest flaw is an upside-down "L" crack from the lip of the cap. Clear imprint on the taper cap. Overall, a very good vintage pen for its age. Click the headline for close-ups. 14.7cm capped.
Pencil: 5041 Sheaffer PFM-IV
Filling Mechanism: Pencil
Sheaffer Pen for Men pens are among the most desirable Sheaffer fountain pens on the market, but harder to find are their matching pencils. Our PFM-IV pencil is the 2nd most luxurious of the line, with the V being the highest end of the series. It is in great working order. Light wear is visible, but there is nothing egregiously bad. Using .9mm leads, you get some spares and a hardened originally under the tail cap. 12.9cm.
Vintage Pens: 5038 Esterbrook Dollar Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Esterbrook Dollar Pens are the popular springboard for the iconic Esterbrook J-model pens that ruled the 1950s. These classic pens from the 1940s are great basic lever fillers with interchangeable nibs that easily unscrew. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. It has no cracks or deep scratches. It comes with an early 1555 Gregg nib that writes a nice extra-fine line with a little feedback. Also included is an Esterbrook Dollar Pencil. A little darker than the fountain pen, it is in good working order. It also is an early click model that sports a 1.1mm lead. There are no spare leads or eraser. The pen measures 12.1cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5040 LeBoeuf Greg Norman
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
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 0676. 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 appears to be 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. Its converter is stiff but still draws and holds water. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5037 Esterbrook Dollar Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Incised cap bands strike again! This rare cap is a treat in green. We have fully restored this Esterbrook Dollar Pen. We present it as we found it, and we think the cap and barrel are a matched pair from different pens. The greens are a little different and the cap and barrel make a little bit of an elbow when screwed together. Nevertheless, this crack-free cap is still fairly rare. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. No cracks, but there is a little wear on the cap and the nib section has some deep scratches from a previous repair. No cracks in the barrel. It is a good pen. It sports an early 1551 nib that writes a medium line with a little fine variation. 12.1cm capped.
