Watch our Waltham Pen

Today's vintage pen addition is a Waltham that we suspect was made by the famed watch company. It's green barrel and cap are layered like the sheets of candy in a lollipop. It doesn't taste as good, but it will last much longer as your eyes lap it up.

Head on down to the vintage pens page for a teal Parker 45 with a two-tone steel cap. It is in great condition and can use a modern Parker piston converter. It's cheap, too!

We have been adding new inkwells to our inkwell pages over the past several days. From an early Waterman's ink bottle to a cool art deco inkwell, we actually have plenty more still to come! Check them out today.

Up this weekend are two Sheaffer TouchDown filler. One is a maroon Statesman that writes a lusious bold line. The other is handsome blue Tuckaway Lifetime with a new ink sac and O-ring. The pen looks to be in nearly perfect condition.

As our latest Esterbrook pen additions replenished the site, now they are selling quickly. To help keep the site up to date, we've added more of these classic pens to the line up. Our copper-colored LJ model sports an extra-fine nib!

Collectors seeking more Wearever pens will like the top of today's vintage pens page. We have another one from the 1930s. It might have a few little issues, but the price is right.

Filling in our color palette of Esterbrooks should see the return of black (a great transition pen) and grey, an SJ model. See them with other colors on the vintage pens page.

You will be impressed by the pristine quality of the pinstriped 1/8 14k gold fill cap on our latest Parker 51. It is a dove grey demi model fully restored with a new diaphragm and filler unit. It is presently perched on the top of our vintage pens page.

Visconti's early failure, the Monte Carlo, is now a retro looking collector's piece. Ours is a rollerball model on our preowned pens page. It comes with its original box and a new refill.

A rare orange hard rubber graces our lady's Parker Duofold on the vintage pens page. It writes very nicely with a fine line. The barrel is not hard rubber, but it fits perfectly with the cap. Enjoy this special treat, as the best things come in smal packages.

Cool off this summer with a refreshing sterling silver Parker 75. A smooth fine-medium with the classic "66" 14k gold nib that you can twist to best suit the angle of your writing, this vintage pen is a vision for the Don Drapers of the world to write with.

Also new to the site is a handsome 1948 Parker 51 that appears to have been used sparingly. It is burgundy with a gold-fill cap that shows very little wear. The original Aerometric filler was made to last, and it still is in good shape!

We have added three great new vintage pens. All are fully restored Sheaffer fountain pens. These handsome devils include a carmine red Sheaffer 875, a black Sheaffer Valiant TouchDown and a stunning Sheaffer Sentinel Lifetime TouchDown with a green barrel and a chrome-and-gold cap. Visit them today on the vintage pens 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.

Another set of new additions restock our dwindling supply of Esterbrook Transition fountain pens and our pre-owned Mont Blanc Meisterstuck LeGrand. Snatch them up before someone else does.

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!
