Pens and Ephemera
Pre-Owned Pens: 4596 Visconti Ragtime
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Back in the very beginning of Visconti was the Ragtime. Visconti Ragtimes were among the first...if not the first...models the company made. This ballpoint pen comes in a spectacular tiger-eye acrylic. Twist the tail cap to advance or retract the working black, Parker-style refill. Minimal wear. It looks great. 13.8cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4385 Visconti Traveling Ink Pot
Travel the globe and never run out of ink when you get this Visconti Traveling Ink Pot. This large capacity ink pot is ink tight, fits most luggage easily, comes with an eyedropper, blotting cloth and even an ink pellet to make ink with distilled water! The whole thing even comes with its original box! This ink pot had been used, as we cleaned out all the ink chambers. Yet, the entire assembly looks to be in good working order. Even the blotter cloth is ink free.
Pre-Owned Pens: 4382 Visconti Voyager Convertible
Filling Mechanism: Rollerball
Coral is always a highly sought color for pen collectors, and these Visconti Voyager Convertibles from 1998 are not easy to find. Convertible? Unscrew the golden nose cone on this pen and you can put in a rollerball, felt-tip or Parker-style ballpoint refill! This pen still includes it Parker-ballpoint conversion kit! We installed a new rollerball refill, but we showed off the pen with a dried felt-tip refill for the visual. Cosmetically, this preowned luxury pen has a few issues. The cap is a shade darker than the barrel. No cracks or scratches, but the metal trim has a lot of issues. The cap band looks like the bottom lip of the band is coming up a little and has some spots of corrosion. That goes for the top logo button on the cap, too. We've cleaned them up as best we can, but it still isn't perfect. You can see the corrosion on the metal warranty tube, too. 14cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 1429 Visconti Voyager Demonstrator
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Before the demonstrator craze even got started, an Italian luxury pen manufacturer knew it would be a brilliant idea to showcase its finest wares. Thus, we have the birth of the Visconti Voyager Demonstrator limited edition. Black and yellow lines add panache to the clear cap and barrel of pen number 728 of 888. Its original owner filled it with blue-black ink. We did our best to clear it out, it still is visible in some places. Its piston filler is in good working order. You'll write a nice medium line with its two-tone 18k gold nib, but it might need a little breaking in to get used to daily use once again. Your purchase includes the pen's original wooden presentation box and papers. No cracks and minimal traces of wear mar this pen's surface. 14.2cm capped.
