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: 4796 Parker Counter Display Case
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $2,499.99
Vintage Pens: 4796: Parker: Counter Display Case
Decorate your home or business with an authentic Parker Pen Display counter. We believe it is roughly 100 years old. It is normal counter height at maybe around 4 feet tall. We are helping a friend in the Chicago suburbs sell this case. As it is so large, you really need to be able to pick it up in person or arrange for a moving company to get it. It is heavy, made of wood and glass. Behind the cabinet is a drawer for ink and other accessories. None of the contents in or on the case are included with the sale price. If you are interested in the case, please contact so we can make arrangements. As for the dimensions, we weren't smart enough to get the complete measurements. It is about 4 feet tall and about 2.5 feet wide and maybe about 2.5 to 3 feet deep. It is in excellent condition for its age, but it likely isn't without a blemish or two after 100 years. The owner of this case would prefer $2,499.99, but he will entertain offers.
Vintage Pens: 4534 Parker VP
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: B
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 4534: Parker: VP
Parker VP meant Very Personal. The revolutionary developments for this pen included an ergonomic grip for the fountain pen and a nib and feed that could be rotated to better accommodate for the grip and getting the nib to write from any angle. These are rarer pens, as they only made VPs for a couple years. It led to the monumental success of the Parker 75. This teal colored vintage pen has a major problem in its barrel. Click the headline for a close-up to see the 1.5cm crack in the barrel where it threads into the section. Basically, the crack is bad and makes the pen unstable to write with...without making the crack worse. This is a shame, as the aerometric filler unit is in great condition. In most VPs, this is the rare part that is whole. Its 14k gold nib writes a very smooth broad line. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4533 Parker VP
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 4533: Parker: VP
Parker VP pens heralded many great innovations in their short production run. Without these pens, the Parker 75 would never have been the mega hit it became. Our favorite innovation is the adjustable nib. You can carefully pinch the nib and turn it to the left or right to better suit how your hand grips its ergonomic section. Click the headline for close-ups of the pen and nib. Our vintage pen is in good working order. It comes with an original aerometric filler with the see-though window. Many of these are broken in other pens, but our's is still intact! There are cracks in the cap or barrel, just some light to moderate wear from use. The only dent is under the arrow clip. Its 14k gold nib writes a fine line with a little feedback. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4780 Sheaffer Lifetime Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 4780: Sheaffer: Lifetime Balance
Good luck finding a more perfect oversized black-and-pearl than this 1935 Sheaffer Lifetime Balance. There isn't a hint of brown discoloration, and there are no cracks or deep scratches. It is fully restored with a new ink sac. Obviously, no one is perfect, and this--to us--has two nearly insignificant flaws and one big one. A tiny piece of the gold plate chipped off the flat-ball pocket clip. AND, a previous repair person shaved the lip of the cap a little to eliminate a small chip...most likely. The big flaw is this has the wrong section, nib and flat feed, most likely from a late 1920s Lifetime flattop. You will write an insanely dry, extra-fine line with what we suspect was an accountant's nib. It barely writes at all and might need to be broken in a little, IF you want to write with it. However, this pen looks so amazing, we totally understand if it would be for display only. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4776 Sheaffer Oversized Lifetime Balance
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 4776: Sheaffer: Oversized Lifetime Balance
If you are looking for an oversized Sheaffer Lifetime Balance pen that is bordering on perfection...you can stop looking. Our shining black beauty is scratchless and crackless. It has a strong imprint. Naturally, it is restored with a new ink sac. It only has two minor flaws. First, a shade of plating missing from the bottom of the pocket clip. Second, the cap band jiggles a little. We don't think the cap band is in danger of coming off; it just wiggles a little. Click the headline for a close-up of the rarish two-tone 14k gold nib over a flat feed. If you like dry, extra-fine lines, you'll love this pen. It is so dry we worry it might have a flow problem, but if you're an extra fine fan, you might already know how to work around that. Otherwise, it is close to museum worthy. 14.1cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4770 Waterman 56
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: O
Price: $599.99
Vintage Pens: 4770: Waterman: 56
Vintage Waterman pens are highly desirable to begin with, but when you add decorative gold-plated trim and a factory oblique nib from the 1920s, there is so much more to love. Our vintage pen is a Waterman 56 that is fully restored with a new ink sac. It was reblackened by its previous owner, and it looks almost new out of the factory. No cracks or scratches. Its 56 still has a little orange left in it. Crisp imprint and chasing. Its pocket clip is marked "18k Filled Clip-Cap." It also sports a unique secondary imprint: "National / Live Stock Producer." You will write with some nice bounce on its 14k gold OBLIQUE nib. The nib has a crisp edge for specialized writing and might take a little getting used to, if you do not normally use oblique nibs. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4764 Parker 61 Flighter
Filling Mechanism: Capillary
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 4764: Parker: 61 Flighter
In 1957, Parker released the last truly brilliant new filling mechanism before cartridge/converters took over the scene. Its revolutionary Parker 61 came with a capillary filler. Simple and ingenius, all you have to do is dip the Teflon-coated tail of the filler in ink. Capillary action sucks ink up into the pen. These pens were made during a time when very few people ever changed their ink colors. As such, this is a great pen for using the same color all of the time. It is difficult to flush and change colors easily. All the same, this vintage pen's 14k gold nib writes a beautifully smooth fine line. No dents or cracks in the steel Flighter design but it was a daily user with the light to moderate wear you'd expect. Its plastic hood, has a scar where the cap closes against it. Flighters were one of the rarer designs, and this is still a great pen. 13.5cm capped.
