Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $599.99
Vintage Pens: 4815: Waterman: Emblem
Talk about grail pens! This milk-white Waterman Emblem is New Old Stock! No ink inside the cap. No ink in the threads. If it was used, it was used sparingly. Minimal traces of wear. No brassing. We installed a new ink sac and polished out some tarnish on the cap band and clip. There is a teeny-tiny little dimple on the back of the cap band. It is very rare to find these vintage pens in any condition, let alone this nice of a condition. This isn't a pen with a thermometer, just in case we're confused as to the very definition of a doctor's pen. Click the headline for a close up. You'll write a "rigid" fine line with its 14k gold nib. You will feel the paper beneath the tip, but it isn't a scratchy pen. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4816 Sheaffer Daily Driver
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 4816: Sheaffer: Daily Driver
Sheaffer famously made a "transition" pen that paired spare flat-top barrels with Balance caps. The trouble is, unless you have the original receipt for the pen, it is nearly impossible to tell if you have an original pen or a pen-repairman's Frankenpen. We found this Sheaffer pen in this condition from somebody who got this pen in this condition. Yet, they got it about 80 years after it was first made, so we can't guarantee this is a true, original pen. We can confirm it has a working new ink sac. Its barrel is more discolored than its cap. Click the headline to see the nib up close. You will write a firm, extra-fine line with its 14k gold nib. Junior sized. 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4813 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $999.99
Vintage Pens: 4813: Parker: Duofold
Senior-sized Parker Duofolds with a wide cap band, such as this one, don't come along every day. In fact, they might only come along once or twice a lifetime, if you're lucky. We have one such beauty right here, and it has no cracks under the cap band. It is gorgeous with a deep Lucky Curve imprint, too! Fully restored with a new ink sac, its only flaw appears to be a thin sliver of brassing on the cap band. Click the headline for a close-up. This is a permanite model not the red hard rubber. Still, it is a great treat. There's a "Christmas tree" inkfeed and a 14k gold nib. You'll write a very nice medium line. Fairly crisp milling on the end caps, too! 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4814 Conklin Crescent
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 4814: Conklin: Crescent
Conklin pen fans and lovers of art deco might thrill in the unique "M"-shaped chasing between pinstripes on this late-model Conklin Crescent from the 1920s. Probably one of the last hard-rubber models, it doesn't have an identifying model number or nib number. Its 14k gold nib looks like a size 3 or 4. You will write a really nice fine line with it. A passing glance reveals perfection, but if you take a really close scrutinizing look at this Conklin Crescent fountain pen, you'll see a tiny dimple in the cap band and wear marks from putting the cap on either end. The clip isn't flat against the barrel, either. Otherwise, its perfect. No cracks or brassing. Fully restored with a new ink sac. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4520 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 4520: Parker: Vacumatic
The larger Parker Vacumatic Maxima fountain pens are a difficult find these days. However, we are proud to showcase a very handsome golden pearl model from 1941. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new diaphragm. It is in excellent condition with no cracks or brassing. There is minimal wear. Its only flaw seems to be that the barrel is ambered. You can still see through it when empty, but the celluloid is fairly dark. Click the headline to see its beautiful two-tone 14k gold nib. You will write a firm, wet, fine line. The firmness gives it feedback, but it isn't scratchy for those who appreciate the nuance of a smooth nib with feedback. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4809 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 4809: Parker: Vacumatic
We still think that Parker Vacumatics are among the most ingenius filling systems. We restored this standard/major-sized vintage pen with a new diaphragm. It has a vibrant silver pearl design. You can see through the barrel, but it still has some moderate ambering. The pen was a daily user, but there are no cracks or deep scratches. It has light scratches and wear—some brassing on the clip and bands. You will write a very nice extra-fine line with its 14k gold nib. Its date code is worn out, and we aren't sure which specific year in which it was made. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4808 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4808: Parker: Vacumatic
Dainty Parker Vacumatic Debutante fountain pens are incredibly cute and a little trickier to find. Our vintage pen from 1940 is a silver pearl model. The barrel clarity is poor and darkly ambered. However, the pen has been fully restored with a new diaphragm and works great. This pen was well loved and heavily used by its original owner. No cracks or deep scratches, but lots of light surface wear. We like the arrow patterns on the gold-plated cap band. Mild brassing on the clip and clip band. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. It is 14k gold, and you will write a smooth medium line. 11.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4525: Parker: Vacumatic
Let's hear it for the first generation of Parker Vacumatics! We have a fully restored silver pearl set in the Parker Vacumatic Standard model. Double silver pearl jewels finish each end of the pen that has been given a new diaphragm. Its aluminum lock-down filler is in great shape. You'll see good barrel clarity, but it has ambered significantly. No cracks, light wear, a little brassing on the cap bands. Its two-tone nib writes an extra, extra, extra-fine line with only small amount of feedback. We're talking thinner than Japanese whisper thin lines. Clean imprint with a 1935 date code. Its matching pencil is a little stiff but working, and it comes with spare 1.1mm leads and a hardened original eraser. Pen measures 13cm capped.
