Although Esterbrook made millions of pens in the 1940s and '50s, the Esterbrook Icicle design was one of its rarer designs. This electric sapphire blue is an added bonus, as this photo doesn't do justice to the color. Almost in mint condition, there are no imprints and minimal wear. No cracks. We restored this pen with a fresh ink sac. As an added bonus, it comes with an upgrade nib numbered 9555, which was advertised as a shorthand nib! It writes a smooth medium line in its sweet spot. This is a longer Esterbrook LJ model. 12.8cm capped.
