Vintage Pens: 5064: Diamond Point: Fill E-Z
Back in the roaring '20s, dozens of companies were vying for market share in the competitive world of fountain pens. Diamond Point was more of a second-tier brand that made quality pens but not quite on par with Sheaffer, Parker or Waterman. This ebonite vintage pen still looks really sharp without any chocolate hazing. There is a bit of brassing around the top edge of the ringtop cap. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Its size 3 14k gold nib has some flex. You will write a wet medium to 1.5mm wide with some feedback. Deep crisp imprints. 10.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5063: Mabie Todd (Swan): Ringtop
Celebrate summer with a sunny, semi-flex Swan ringtop fountain pen. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Like a glass of orange juice with light pulp, this classic Mabie Todd pen looks fresh and inviting. If you look very closely, you can see a few bite marks and scratches, but unless you are intentionally looking for them, they don't show well or easily. You will write a nice medium line with a semi-flex potential to go out to 1mm wide with its 14k gold nib. Nice, legible barrel imprint. 11cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5061 Waterman 54
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 5061: Waterman: 54
Easier to handle than a Waterman 52, this Waterman 54 is a bit wider to grip. Of course, it is the 14k gold nib that flexes that most people will love. You can write from extra fine to a little more than 1mm wide. It isn't a wet noodle, but it is a respectable flex with light feedback that helps you feel the paper and what you are doing. On a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being total chocolate hazing, we'd say the cap and barrel behind the band are a 2. Nice chasing, clean imprints. No cracks or significant scratches. Fully restored with a new ink sac. The barrel band isn't marked 14k gold, and it is engraved with the initials "H Y K" in a lovely script. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5054 Eagle Caplox 24
Filling Mechanism: Eyedropper
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 5054: Eagle: Caplox 24
Eagle pens are vintage pen treasures we don't often find. This is the Eagle Caplox 24. It is an elegant eyedropper pen. The section unscrews easily. You will write a flexi line from fine to about 1mm wide. Made of ebonite, the chasing and imprint are a little faded. We wonder if the cap is a replacement cap, as it has no chasing. It fits perfectly, so we aren't sure. There is wear on the cap visible in the photo. Click the headline for close-ups. 13.cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5052: Waterman: Patrician Desk Pen
Egads! Here is near perfection in a writing instrument! Our oversized Waterman Patrician desk pen is a stunner. Fully restored with a new ink sac, you will find this pen to be a dreamy writer. Its 14k gold nib is marked a size 7. You will love writing with its smooth fine-point nib that is just firm enough to maintain a consistent fine line but deliciously FLEXIBLE enough to readily spread out to 1mm wide! As far as vintage pens for daily use go, this one writes and feels nearly perfect. Unfortunately, it does not come with a desk base. That is its tragic flaw. If you have one, it is your lucky day. You will find some obvious staining on the hard-rubber section and taper. Light wear and brassing on the "onyx" celluloid barrel, which is a large 1//2-inch wide. 20.2cm.
Vintage Pens: 5047 Sterling Silver
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 5047: Sterling: Silver
Maybe it is the romantic in us, but we like to picture a Victorian lady dressed in a fancy frock biting the end of this sterling silver dip pen as she writes her lover. To say this pen is elegant is an understatement. Fairly large for a dip pen, it is still slender, but not as slender as many other pens we've seen. Aside from the beautiful design there are no other hallmarks or assays other than the word "Sterling," which appears twice on the barrel of the pen in relief and not as an imprint. We aren't sure if this pen is from the early 1900s or late 1800s. We included a new-old-stock Bronze Falcon Esterbrook 048 nib. You will write a very nice semi-flex line that goes from a fine to almost 1mm wide with some feedback. Aside from the bite marks on the tail taper, the only other blemishes are some spots of tarnish we can't quite polish out. 18cm.
Vintage Pens: 5046 Sterling Silver Repousse
Filling Mechanism: Dip)
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $399.99
Vintage Pens: 5046: Sterling Silver: Repousse
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.
Vintage Pens: 5044 Waterman 222
Filling Mechanism: Eyedropper
Era: 1900-1909   Fountain Pen Nib Size: BB
Price: $699.99
Vintage Pens: 5044: Waterman: 222
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.
