Vintage Pens: 0797 Esterbrook Purse Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 0797: Esterbrook: Purse Pen
For all of our Esterbrook fans, here's a classic Esterbrook purse pen in white. It is more of an egg shell, as it isn't the pristine white it was 60 years ago. Nevertheless, it is a nice vintage pen. There are plenty of scratches and nicks. The cap lip is fraught with cracks, but they are pretty common in this purse pens. We have restored it with a new ink sac. The nib is a rarer 1555 GREGG nib. It writes a medium line, and there is a bit of scratch on the inverse downstroke. These old steel nibs usually have a bit of scratch, which endears them to some users and drives others bonkers. The white end cap jewels are likewise rare and in very good condition. 11cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1307 Mabie Todd (Swan) Gold Fill
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1307: Mabie Todd (Swan): Gold Fill
Keep classy with this elegant gold-fill fountain pen from Mabie Todd Swan. From its arrow clip to its pin-stripe sophistication, this fully restored lever-filling pen is the cat's meow. There are no dents, but there is a little scratching on the cap. The barrel is excellent, in spite of the fact "N.J.P" is engraved on it. The original 14k gold nib writes a smooth, wet medium broad line. Made in New York. Click the headline font for a better look at the nib. 12.8cm capped


Vintage Pens: 0574 Waterman 452
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $274.99  Was: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 0574: Waterman: 452
Why invest in a silver mine when you can own a substantial hunk of sterling with this Waterman 452. This vintage pen is made of hard rubber and given a handsome pinstriped sterling silver overlay. The rubber core of the pen is in nearly mint condition. An imprint near the tail clearly reads "Waterman's/Reg U.S. Pat. Off./Made in U.S.A." We resac'ed the pen. The silver barrel overlay is marked "Sterling" and "Made in U.S.A." The name plate: "ED M.B." The barrel sleeve is amazing with only a few little nicks and scratches. The silver cap is marked "Sterling" and "Waterman's". It is missing its clip, but still has one of the silver rivets. The cap shows more little dings and scratches than the barrel but no big dents or other major issues. The domed top is still in good shape. Purists will argue that a 452 must have a #2 nib, but ours has a semi-flex 4! (Click the blue headline.) It is not a wet noodle, but this medium nib definitely will give a little for you. 13.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1058 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $49.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1058: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
There is no denying the handsome, distinct styling of the Eversharp Skyline. This vintage pen from the 1940s looks great, especially with that green and blue striped cap with golden trim. We have restored this one with a fresh ink sac and working old breather tube. The original 14k nib writes a somewhat stiff fine line. There are no cracks in the cap, and the top dome is on tightly. The blue barrel has some surface wear, and, unfortunately, a crack in the threads. The section can get a little loose with too much pressure as you write. There isn't much we can do about that. Our Skyline is the standard size model. 13.3cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1032 Penol Ambassador Senior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 1032: Penol: Ambassador Senior
Penol was created by Christian Olsen who helped develop Parker pens in Denmark. This Penol Ambassador Senior was the largest of the line, which was sold during the 1940s. It uses a button-filler just like the Duofold. You can see a strong Penol imprint on the barrel, but the "Ambassador" is a bit faded. Light wear adds character to the pen, but there are no chips, cracks or dents. We polished up the cap bands, but there is heavy brassing, with more on the slightly loose clip. The jewel is a little off kilter, but the blue ring of enamel surrounding it is still intact. We are selling this pen for a friend and aren't sure when it was last sac'ed, but it fills easily without any problems. The original Penol Deluxe nib writes a smooth fine line. If you click the headline you can see it isn't marked as gold, and the stamped areas seem to show steel...which isn't surprising given these pens were first made during Nazi occupation. A unique piece for your collection. 13.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1283 Conklin Endura (?)
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $124.99
Vintage Pens: 1283: Conklin: Endura (?)
It looks a lot like the Conklin Endura, but this vintage pen doesn't have all of the hallmarks of the usual Enduras we have seen. It is an authentic Conklin, but we just are not family with this handsome blue color and more standard-size design. It is in good shape and fully restored. There are a couple small hairline cracks in the lip of the cap, and there is a big discoloration spot that you can see on the barrel in the main photo. A bit of brassing is obvious at the top of the pocket clip. The imprint is strong; the lever has a 1925 patent notice and a crescent logo. The clip features a 1918 patent notice. The 14k gold nib writes a silky wet fine line. Click the headline to see the nib. 12.3cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1248 Sheaffer TM-Triumph
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $124.99
Vintage Pens: 1248: Sheaffer: TM-Triumph
All engravings aside, this rare Sheaffer Touchdown TM Triumph has been one of our favorite finds of late. It looks like it did when it left the store more than 60 years ago. We replaced the ink sac and O-ring. The clip is on tight. There is no wear on the gold-filled pen. It is engraved on the barrel with the name of "Louis Schaaf." The cap is engraved "10 Years / Tension Env Corp". The two-tone conical Triumph nib is 14k gold and writes a firm fine line. Click the headline font to see a close up. A small patch of gold shines through the palladium plate on the bottom tine of the photo. 13.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1231 Parker 75
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1231: Parker: 75
France is the birthplace of some Parker 75 fountain pens, as the famed pen manufacturer expanded operations in Europe. Made of sterling silver, the cap is imprinted with "Y1 / MD / Parker / Sterling .925 France" and two hallmarks. Dents blemish neither cap nor barrel. Four stacked plates make up each end cap. A silver disc is in the middle of the cap top. The same design marks the bottom, but the inner disc is gold. The only problem with the pen is that the gold plating is coming off the hash-marked section collar. The French-made 14k gold nib is marked on the inkfeed as medium and writes a smooth medium line. It comes with an old empty cartridge, and it can use a modern converter. The section is black plastic, not metal threaded. 12.8cm capped.
