Blue National Pen Co Lincoln

Okay. Now gracing our vintage pens collection is a beautiful oversized blue Lincoln Pen by National Pen Products of Chicago! In addition to near perfect color preservation it has a nib that is almost as flexible as a true wet noodle nib!

We are pleased to feature series of piston-filling Faber Castell fountain pens from the 1970s. These vintage pens come with different nibs, and our first one has a delightful stub nib made of 14k gold. Our second has a plain bold/broad nib on it. The third has a fine-point nib.

We have a white Esterbrook purse pen now gracing our vintage pens page. This popular old bird has white end cap jewels and a 1555 Gregg nib. After nearly 60 years, it has its blemishes, but it is still a nice pen for any Esterbrook fan.

Head over to our Ink Pages to see 4 great colors of bottled ink by Yard-O-Led. In addition to that, we now carry Schmidt rollerball pen refills!

Our oversized hard rubber Inkograph is a unique vintage writing instrument for your collection. We've restored it with a fresh new ink sac. It ought to a great conversation starter at your pen club.

If a mandarin yellow oversized senior Parker Duofold fountain pen is the holy grail for main collectors, does that make a junior sized one the holy sippy cup? You won't laugh when you experience the remarkably smooth medium nib. Plus it still has its Christmas tree inkfeed.

An Eversharp Skyline on our vintage pens page comes with a rarer gold-fill pinstripe cap. The cap is in good condition with a couple little dents and dings, but you'll especially love the extra-fine to fine nib in 14k gold. Fully restored.

Homicide might be going a bit far for one good daily writer, but it would almost be understandable. Today's vintage pen is an oversized Sheaffer Lifetime with a smooth medium nib. It is like the Cadillac of nibs. It is worth overlooking the cap's flaws for an affordable stay-at-home daily writer.

We just posted a rare early hard-rubber Sheaffer's self-filling pen to our vintage pens page. The clip and cap band are even marked 14k gold! The original nib has a bit of flex and is stamped "self-filling".

Purse pens by Esterbrook are rare, especially in good condition. Luckily for you, our light pink purse pen is in excellent condition. Fully restored it comes with a nice medium 2668 nib. See it on our vintage pens page today!

We just picked up a stack of 24 new-old-stock German fountain pens by Reform. These steel nibbed pens are good writers with a piston filler. It is an ideal pen for knock-about use or for beginners.

Our vintage pens pages are the host of a happily married Esterbrook fountain pen with a ruby-red V-clip cap. Said pen also sports an ultra smooth 9556 nib. Both elements are worth the price of the pen, which would be a handsome addition to your collection.

The National Pen Company was a great Chicago pen company before the Great Depression hit. We have one of their handsome oversized Lincoln model pens in a mottled black and orange hard rubber. See our National Pen Co Lincoln on the vintage pens pages.

Rock and roll your troubles away with our newly added rocker blotter. Made of wood, with a nice little inlay design, it is sure to dress up your desk while helping with the occasional spill or drip.

Even today the bold art deco Parker Duofold twin desk set is a sight to behold in "big red" glory. We think the base is quartz, and we know it is very dynamic and handsome. See it today on our vintage pens page.

There is something about the elegant swirls of brass that create an inkwell's base and tray that will take your breath away. We won't waste your time describing it here. You really need to see it on the Inkwells and Blotters page!

The pen is mightier than the sword, but our new Allegory 1941 ballpoint pens are battle proven! These limited edition pens are made from the original teak deck of the U.S. North Carolina, a battleship that earned 15 battle stars during WWII. Bolt actions extend and retract the Parker-style refills, which are a nifty addition to the pens. See them today on our Pre-Owned Pens section...even though they are brand new in the box.

Remember, also is your home for great vintage pen restoration. All customer repairs move to the front of the repair line, which means we plan on maintaing our one-to-two week turnaround time on your pens!
