Vintage Pens: 4692 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 4692: Parker: Duofold
Parker Duofolds got a nifty update in 1929 with a streamlined look. It follows the original design principles behind the original flattop designs and spins them into the art deco era. Our Parker Duofold Jr. is a handsome black model. It looks great, but on close inspection it has some moderate wear. Click the headline for close-ups. You can see a little dent to the left of the clip on the cap. There are a few other small and subtle marks. We restored it with a new ink sac. You will write a really nice fine line with it CANADIAN Parker nib of 14k gold. (Pen barrel made in USA.) There's a little bit of brassing on the trim. 11.9cm capped.
Pencil: 4666 Parker Duofold
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99
Pencil: 4666: Parker: Duofold
Parker Duofold pencils from the 1920s just stand out as a true classic. This tassle-topped vintage pencil was a well loved daily user. No dents, cracks or deep scratches. Yet, there is a lot of light surface scratching. The good news is that the pencil mechanism works well. A twist of the tassie top advances and retracts a 1.1mm lead. No spare leads in it, but it does have a very hard original eraser under the topper. 12.3cm capped.

Pencil: 4658: Esterbrook: J-Series
Perfect for autumnal mathematicians, crossword puzzlers and sudoku lovers is this 1950s Esterbrook mechanical pencil in a coppery color. This is an early click pencil that uses .9mm leads. No cracks and only light wear, it looks barely used. You will find with clicks smoothly. Plus, there are spare leads in the tail and a hardened original eraser under the tail cap. 12.3cm.

Price: $125.00
Pencil: 4661: Sheaffer: Titan
Sheaffer Titan pencils are the oversized lead-slingers of the Sheaffer line-up in the 1920s. We have one that looks factory fresh in mint or near mint condition. Its jade green is perfect. No dents or scratches. It writes with a 1.1mm lead, and it comes with a barrel full of spares, along with a hardened original eraser. Twist the tail cap to advance and retract the lead. 13.5cm.
Vintage Pens: 4669 Waterman 15
Filling Mechanism: Eyedropper
Era: 1910-1919   Fountain Pen Nib Size: O
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 4669: Waterman: 15
Nib fanatics and vintage pen lovers often gravitate to the early marvel of Waterman pens. We have an especially early Waterman 15 eyedropper pen. The best part about it is the early mottled "red" hard rubber design. Simply unscrew the nib section and fill the empty barrel with an eyedropper. You can seen a nice imprint on the barrel in the photo. Click the headline for close-ups. A faded 15 is seen on the flat tail. No cracks or significant wear. Its 14k gold nib is a #5 with a little bounce but no flex. At some point in time it looks as if someone made this an oblique nib. It writes well for a righty, but it isn't so stubby and oblique as a paint-brush of a broad with a little feedback. 14.6cm capped.
Pencil: 4660 Wahl-Eversharp Woodgrain
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99
Pencil: 4660: Wahl-Eversharp: Woodgrain
Can a vintage pencil get a more iconic and classic look than this orange hard rubber Wahl-Eversharp with a woodgrain pattern? This pencil is in close to mint condition. No scratches or blemishes that we can see. It works beautifully, advancing a 1.1mm lead. We hear spare leads in it, but we aren't sure how to access them. The clip and topper are gold-filled, but the nose cone is a silver-steel color. Leads advance but don't retract unless you push it back in. 13.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4671 Conklin Endura Jr.
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4671: Conklin: Endura Jr.
Conklin was cruising along at the height of its power when it made the Conklin Endura Jr. We especially love this earlier orange hard rubber version with a woodgrain finish. The company soon switched to celluloid. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The finish on the pen is crack free, but you can see it is a little oxidized. Not hideously so, just a little. Heavy brassing on the cap band, which wasn't uncommon for Conklin. Naturally, the nib remains the soul of the pen. You will write a very smooth fine line with its original 14k gold beauty. A nice widish barrel for a junior model that is only 11.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4710 ?? Newton & Co. ? Sterling Silver
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: pre-1900   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4710: ?? Newton & Co. ?: Sterling Silver
Click the headline to get this started properly and see the stunningly huge wet-noodle flexy 14k gold nib. Looks like a faded initial or two then "Newton & Co. / New York / No. 5." We've seen other brands size 8 nibs that look smaller than this nib. This vintage dip pen is large and exquisite. Although it isn't marked as such, it appears to have a sterling silver section and hollow barrel. Possibly a pencil was involved with the other end of the nib section, but it is missing and there is a large blemish that is easily seen in the photo. Dents blemish the end of the barrel. Nevertheless, this remains a beautiful 19th century pen. We aren't expert enough to wield it, yet it seems to write a nearly invisible extra-fine to 1mm line. 14.1mm fully extended, 10.3cm closed.
