Vintage Pens: 3138 Parker Duofold Senior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3138: Parker: Duofold Senior
It's not easy being green, but this oversized senior Parker Duofold makes it look pretty easy. Our vintage pen's cap is nearly perfect for color and no cracks. You will see the barrel is darker in real life by 3 or 4 shades. Still, compared to most green Duofolds of the 1920s, this one is pretty impressive. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. Click the headline to see the original 14k gold nib close up. In our right hands it writes a very smooth, wet medium line. Yet, the close-up will reveal that the top tine slopes up to a slightly higher bottom tine. It can look a little oblique, but the pen writes normally in our right hand. None of us is left handed, so we aren't sure how that side works. It has a "Christmas Tree" inkfeed. Some brassing on the pocket clip. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3137 Parker Duofold Senior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3137: Parker: Duofold Senior
We have never seen a Parker Duofold Senior in jade celluloid this close to perfect! If you look closely, you can see three faint browning rings in the cap, but the cap still looks fairly impressive. NO CRACKS! Heavy brassing can be found on the cap ring, with additional brassing at the top and bottom of the clip. In an effort to prevent further discoloration we have not added a new ink sac. Yet, if you want this as a daily writer, we can put that ink sac in for you. The spring is properly engaged to the button in the tail. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. The 14k gold nib and feed are the correct replacement parts designed for Parker Duofolds, which are fairly common to find in Duofolds that had a lifetime warranty. It writes a smooth fine line. 13.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3141: Diamond Medal: Ringtop
In the 1920s, it was quite common to carry your fountain pen on a necklace or watch fob. Hence the popularity of pens such as this Diamond Medal Ringtop fountain pen. Ours comes with a working ink sac, but we don't recommend carrying it on a necklace or fob these days. No cracks mar its surface, but the pen has some obvious discoloration. Click the headline to see a close up of the cap band with a "D" engraved on it. You'll also see the original size 3 nib made of 14k gold. Write with it for a very smooth, wet fine line. Strong barrel imprint. 12cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3140 Gold Bond Stonite
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $59.99

Vintage Pens: 3140: Gold Bond: Stonite
The shift away from more fragile hard rubber for pen manufacturing was swift by the end of the 1920s. Parker famously had its "permanite." Gold Bond listed on this pen that it was made of "Stonite." For those not familiar, Gold Bond was a sub-brand of the National Pen Company in Chicago. Overall, it might be considered a 2nd tier brand. Ours is fully restored with a fresh ink sac. The pen is free of cracks, but it has an impression line near the tail, which you can see in the photo. It also has a flat spot where a name was once removed. Click the headline for a close up of its original 14k gold nib that writes a smooth extra-fine to fine line. 11.2cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3139: Gold Bond: Fountain Pen
The National Pen Company was large pen manufacturer in Chicago in the 1920s and early 1930s. It owned several subbrands such as Diamond Medal and Gold Bond. Our Gold Bond pen is made of an early green celluloid. We restored it with a new ink sac. The imprint is strong and there are no cracks. It does have brassing on its clip and the celluloid in the photo on top of the lever is bulging just a little. The name "V.F. Stevens" is engraved on it but actually easy to overlook. Writes a fine line with roughly size 3 Warranted 14k gold nib. 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3123 Pelikan 100
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $289.99
Vintage Pens: 3123: Pelikan: 100
Pelikan 100 pens are great vintage pens from before and after the second world war. This one is fully restored with a fresh piston seal. The tail twist knob is smooth, without gripping stripes. The pen has some wear, the worst of which is heavy brassing on the clip and almost complete brassing on the cap bands. Its 14k gold nib writes a smooth extra-fine line with a little flex. Click the headline for a close-up. It's imprint on the top of the cap is almost completely faded. 11.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3135 Gold Bond Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 3135: Gold Bond: Fountain Pen
Who was Katherine Harper in 1930s? Aviatrix? Journalist? Secretary? Teacher? We might never know, but she did write with a Gold Bond "Stonite" fountain pen that is about the same size as a Parker Duofold Jr. We restored it with a new ink sac, and it is ready to serve once again. Although it is pretty heavily discolored in the celluloid and ebonite section, it is in good cosmetic condition. No cracks, minimal wear and minimal brassing...mostly only on the filling lever. Its original 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a little flex and feedback. 11.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3124 Pelikan 100
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $349.99
Vintage Pens: 3124: Pelikan: 100
Okay. So we got the original description a little wrong. The nib and box are not accurate for the pen...although everything fits! The pen might be from the late 1940s or 1950s. The pencil might be older, as it is marked "D.R.P." We are selling it on behalf of a fairly well-known Pelikan restoration master. The pen's piston seal has been replaced and it works well. We'd say there was moderate wear on the pen. It can't hide its scratches. You can see a little gap where the cap falls just short of the green sleeve on the pen. Fractals are visible but not leaking in the green ink view window. Its 14c gold nib writes an extra-fine semi-flex line with a little feedback. Although the pen has no "D.R.P" marks that we could find, the pencil does. It is a great working click pencil! Pen measures 11.8cm capped.
