Vintage Pens: 0095 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $99.99  Was: $119.99
Vintage Pens: 0095: Parker: 51
Double your pen-collecting pleasure with this silver-capped black Parker 51 pen and pencil set from 1944! The vintage pen has been fully restored with a new diaphragm; the pencil is inopperable as far as we can tell. Each vintage writing instrument is engraved "George S. Flaherty." The 14K nib writes a smooth medium to medium-broad line. The Vacumatic pump is clear yellow plastic. The blind cap closes flush. There is surface wear from daily use, and the imprint is feint. The sterling silver cap on the Parker 51 has had its dents treated, but there is still a little surface wear. The blue diamond clip is on tight and doesn't spin. 13.8 cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0870 Reform 1745
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $19.99
Vintage Pens: 0870: Reform: 1745
Want a trusty German-made piston filler without the Pelikan or Mont Blanc price? It is time to give the Reform 1745 fountain pen a serious look. We have 19 of these new-old-stock pens that borrow heavily from Pelikan designs. The two-tone steel nib is a medium writer that is better than an Esterbrook 1000 or 2000 line nib but not as good as the 9000 line nibs. The piston fills by twisting the tail. It even comes with its original sticker. Although these are brand new pens, we apologize many are getting a little green tarnishing on the pocket clips. 12.8cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0156 Parker Parkette Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $79.99
Vintage Pens: 0156: Parker: Parkette Deluxe
A Parker lever-filling fountain pen? That's something you don't see every day! Our Parker Parkette Deluxe is, indeed, a lever-filling fountain pen--and it has been fully restored with a new J-spring and ink sac. Look at that classic cubist, art-deco green design. The many shades of green translucence still shine through the moderate to heavy wear on this 12-sided barrel and cap. There are no cracks, just lots of little scratches and nicks. There is moderate brassing on the clip, lever and cap rings. It is still a nice pen, just not a museum piece. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth, wet medium line. The lever is a little loose, only in the sense it doesn't always lay flush with the barrel and flaps down a tad when held upside down. This won't effect filling or spilling. The barrel imprint is still strong reading, "Made in U.S.A. Parkette Deluxe By Parker Pen Co. 25." 12.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0145 Parker 21
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $29.99
Vintage Pens: 0145: Parker: 21
If you couldn't afford the exorbitant price of a Parker 51 but you still wanted a high-quality Parker writing instrument, there always was the 21. Virtually identical to the 51, with its sleek modern design, hooded nib that prevents dry outs and an easy-to-use aerometric filler. The only major differences were the steel nib and cap. Little changes over the years. Parker's 21 is still a great inexpensive starter or companion for the more expensive 51. This particular one has a still working, unrestored aerometric filler and a smooth medium-broad steel nib. You can see some definite wear on the pen, but there are no cracks or structural shortcomings. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0935 Sheaffer PFM-V
Filling Mechanism: Snorkel
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $495.00
Vintage Pens: 0935: Sheaffer: PFM-V
Everybody wants 'em these days, but we're one of the only companies to have one: a Sheaffer PFM - V. This large vintage pen from the late 1950s or early 1960s was also known as the Pen for Men, but it is pretty clear women are just as capable of using them and even--gasp!--enjoying them. Its wide-bodied construction actually makes writing much easier for anybody who has hands that cramp from writing. This pen is unrestored but has a working snorkel refill. The 14k gold nib writes a beautifully smooth fine-medium line. The barrel of the pen is covered in light and moderate wear marks and scratches. There are no cracks. The cap is in good condition with no dents, deep scratches or brassing...just some wear from being carried around all of the time. The clip of this and the pencil are engraved with "M F F." The pencil is in good working order and has less wear. The set comes in its original box with its original papers! Pen measures 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0913 Parker Shadow Wave Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $159.99
Vintage Pens: 0913: Parker: Shadow Wave Vacumatic
The grey shadow wave design on this vintage Parker Vacumatic major looks like something out of "The Matrix." We spent hours polishing it to a high-gloss shine that overrides any remaining surface wear. The diaphragm has been replaced, and this pen is ready for many more years of great service. The filler is an original lock-down model. The imprint is strong and tells us the pen was born in 1938. There are no cracks, dents, divots or any significant elements of damage to the cap and barrel. The inkfeed has an odd indentation that is very obvious...but how often do you stare at the inkfeed? The trim is silver. The 14k gold nib writes a luscious wet medium-bold line! An absolute dream of a vintage pen. Clip tight. 12cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0901 Diamond Medal Diplomat
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $225.00
Vintage Pens: 0901: Diamond Medal: Diplomat
Chicago offered a lot of great fountain pens before the crash of 1929. Diamond Medal was a popular company that made quality pens that are sought after today. This is their oversized wide-bodied Diplomat model. It comes with its original 14k gold smooth, wet medium nib and feed and is in working order, although it was not restored by us. Click the headline font to see the incredible nib and a plier mark or some such divot in the section. The there is obvious wear and brassing on the cap, barrel, bands and clip, but there are no cracks. Hand etched into the barrel is "A. E. Hoyt." Discoloration is a problem, but there are still spots of original coloring. The white rings on the tail and cap are nice accents, similar to early Watermans. Most of the original imprint is rubbed out, with only "Chicago" still visible. 12.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0900 Walgreen’s Vogue
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 0900: Walgreen’s: Vogue
Vintage pens with mint condition pearl-and-black designs are nearly impossible to find, regardless of who makes them. This oversized Walgreen Vogue is a treasured gem. Only hints of discoloration. It has a little light wear on it, but there are no cracks or serious flaws. No brassing! The barrel imprint is strong on two lines: "Walgreen Vogue / The Pen That Is Guaranteed for Life." We have replaced the ink sac. Click the headline font to see a close up of the beautiful original 14k gold nib that writes a wonderful fine line. Museum worthy. 14.5cm capped.
