Vintage Pens: 1214 Sheaffer Lifetime Senior
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 1214: Sheaffer: Lifetime Senior
One of the best pens ever made has to be the Sheaffer Lifetime. Nearly 90 years old, these things still form with the best of them. This oversized green vintage pen has been fully restored with a new (monster) ink sac. The cap and barrel are discolored, but there are no cracks. Despite some moderate brassing and light wear, there are no other flaws. The imprint is strong. Thus, we come to the nib. These are our favorite vintage nibs! Complete with original inkfeed, this original 14k gold nib writes a wet, medium line. It is a firm nib, which bothers some aficionados, but we adore these Sheaffer Lifetime nibs. It is as if the words you are writing are riding in a luxury car. 13.3cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 0546 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $129.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 0546: Parker: 51
Parker 51 fountain pens are a must in every collection. This set is only partially mismatched. The pen is black and the pencil is "cordovan" (burgundy-brown), and they have identical caps where groups of 5 lines taper to a point near the top of the cap. Each has a feathered clip. The vintage pen has been restored with a new diaphragm. The barrel is fine with light wear and no deep scratches. The imprint shows it is from 1946. Its original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a nice medium line. The cap is 90% perfect with no dents or dings. There are 2 feint shadows of tiny impressions that no one would notice unless they were specifically looking for them. The pencil is a rare click model that also works! The barrel shows minor wear and a 1948 imprint. The cap is nearly perfect. Plus, it comes in an original leather-bound Parker 51 box. The pen measures 13.5cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1323 Wahl-Eversharp Tulip Clip
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $299.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1323: Wahl-Eversharp: Tulip Clip
Seemingly delivered directly from a pen shop in the late 1920s or early 1930s is this perfect blue-on-blue lapis Wahl fountain pen. Aside from the perfect color, the first thing you'll notice is the rare "tulip" clip. There are no dents or dings in the crown. The gold-filled trim has no brassing. We restored it several years ago, and it is still in good working order. Click the headline font to get a better look at the 14k gold "Signature" nib. It writes a very nice medium line with a light touch. Although it is a "junior" size pen, this is the larger of the two junior sizes Wahl made. 12.2cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1212 Carter’s Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 1212: Carter’s: Fountain Pen
Carter's was most famous for its many colors of specialty fountain pen inks during the golden age of fountain pens. Yet, the company diversified and started making a quality line of fountain pens. This vintage pen is from the late 1920s or 1930s. It has some discoloration issues and is a junior size. There are no cracks and there is minimal wear. We have fuller restored this Carter's pen with a new ink sac. Only the top cap band has any brassing, but the clip is a tad loose. The original 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to medium-broad line with a bit of flex and feedback. Clear but slightly faded imprint. 11.4cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1324 Waterman Hundred Year Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 1324: Waterman: Hundred Year Pen
Get this wide-bodied senior second-year Waterman Hundred-Year Pen in your hand, and you might find your need for awesome vintage pens forever satisfied. The black is radiant in its near-mint condition. There is no brassing on the triple-waist band. The clip isn't marked Waterman's, but the top bolt of the clip has an "Ideal" globe logo! The cap imprint is strong. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The original feed and 14k gold nib write a firm fine line that is a little "stiff." Remarkably, the nib also has flex, but you will need to "train" your nib to get the response and performance you want out of it. Just think how awesome it will be to have custom trained this pen to your hand. Plus, it comes with an original Waterman box made with metal trim. 13.4cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1325 Waterman 100 Year Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $399.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1325: Waterman: 100 Year Pen
In our humble opinion, Waterman peaked with the first year senior-sized Waterman Hundred Year Pen. Ribbed with translucent end caps, it is a thing of beauty. Plus that monster 14k gold nib writes an out-of-sight line. The pens weren't without their flaws. The translucent ends crystallized and crumbled. (So much for a 100-year guarantees.) As a result, it is difficult to find many in their original condition. Our vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The cap translucence appears to be original and is an amber color that is NOT crystallized. The red tail is NOT original. Somebody replaced it before we got it and did a beautiful job recreating a very smooth fit and look. The clip and lever have a little brassing. There's a 1/8-inch crack in the lip of the cap, and a deep 1/4-inch scratch near but not through the strong cap imprint. The rest of the pen is great. The original inkfeed and nib write a smooth medium line with some flex! Click the headline to see. 13cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1026 Wahl-Eversharp Skyline
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $139.99
Vintage Pens: 1026: Wahl-Eversharp: Skyline
Designed to take on the stress of air travel, the Eversharp Skyline used a little breather tube from the inkfeed into the sac to try to alleviate the pressure changes in flight. This vintage pen is an early model that would soon be more streamlined with a tapered tail. Yet, you can see the early hallmarks of the Skyline cap design. This doesn't have the overwrapped clip that the pens would be more famous for. Fully restored with a new ink sac and breather tube! Clear ink viewing window. No cracks, light wear. The original feed and 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line with a little flex. 12.1cm capped.


Vintage Pens: 1090 Parker Challenger
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $69.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 1090: Parker: Challenger
Looking for a buttery smooth daily writer that is a vintage pen? Our Parker Challenger is an excellent choice. Its 14k gold nib is a smooth, wet medium. The original nib is stamped with a 44 that matches the fourth quarter 1934 date code on the barrel. Click the headline font for a better look. We've fully restored the pen with a new ink sac. Overall the pen is very good condition with no cracks. It just shows wear from daily use. The sheen of the dynamic deco green cap and barrel hides the light scratches for easy notice. There is moderate brassing on the pocket clip and cap ring and light discoloration of the black section grip. 12.6cm capped.
