Vintage Pens: 3115 Eclipse Fountain Pen
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3115: Eclipse: Fountain Pen
Oversized Eclipse pens from the 1920s are getting more difficult to find. However, we are happy to offer this handsome model in black. It does not appear to be hard rubber! We warmed it up and gave it a sniff. It definitely didn't have a smell. It is restored with a fresh ink sac. We think the most unique part about this vintage pen is that the brand Eclipse is written in a script font on the pocket clip! No cracks. No engravings. The pinstripes-and-squares pattern is a little worn in places. Scratching and brassing appear heavily on the cap band and lightly on the clip. Its 14k gold Warranted nib appears to be a size 4 or 5. The nib has a little hook downward, but it writes a great, smooth semi-flex extra-fine to 1mm. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3114: Sheaffer: Fountain Pen
We work with a lot of teenagers, and the big thing many of them are into is defining themselves as "a basic." We aren't 100% sure what it means, but it seems to involve leggings, fairy lights and Starbucks. When it comes to this plain black slender nonLifetime Sheaffer its like the perfect basic vintage pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, this ink pen is a great daily driver. It has a nice imprint. The tail has a "c" imprinted, which means it was outsourced to the Celluloid company. Overall the pen looks great, but there is a little brassing. The cap has some pitting and marking. The 14k gold nib writes a smooth, dry extra-fine line. 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1085 Parker Vacumatic
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $89.99
Vintage Pens: 1085: Parker: Vacumatic
Built in the 3rd quarter of 1943, our Parker Vacumatic Major in golden pearl likely has incredible stories to tell. Did it ship out overseas? Did it stay in the the U.S. writing beautiful love letters to someone far from home? Maybe it was put into service on the homefront? We've restored it to great working order with a new diaphragm. Good barrel clarity graces this pen. Unfortunately, there are too long scratches down the side of the barrel and a little rash on the back of the cap, as if it were rubbed for a second on the sidewalk. It isn't a big blemish, only about an inch long and a 1/4-inch wide, but it is there. No cracks! Good barrel imprint. Click the headline to see the 14k gold nib. The tip looks just a shade off, but it writes a very nice, wet fine line. The clip's arrowhead is just a shade off the side of the cap. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3103 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3103: Parker: Duofold
In the late, late 1920s and early, early 1930s, Parker began experimenting a little more with the color of its flagship Duofold pens. Our streamlined Parker Duofold has the lovely burgundy-and-black marbled design. The barrel imprint is strong and clear. You won't read the word "Junior" on it, but the length seems closer to a junior size. It has a couple scratches and wear marks, but it is in overall good cosmetic condition. No cracks! Brassing is only found on the bottom cap band and the ball of the pocket clip. The original Christmas tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a dry extra-fine to fine line. Fully restored with a new ink sac. 11.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3110: Sheaffer: PFM III
Sorry, Ladies. Due to the overt sexism of the 1960s, this pen isn't for you. It is a Sheaffer Pen for Men III. Modern styling and an inlaid 14k gold nib make the Sheaffer PFM an iconic vintage pen. First released in 1959, these pens only had a short run into the early 1960s. It refills using the famed snorkel system. Our blue PFM III is in good working order. We got it from a collector who restores these pens. The PFM III is highlighted by the fact it has gold-plated trim and a 14k gold nib. This nib writes a delightfully smooth extra-fine line. The pen has some wear from use. Light scratches with a few deeper ones and a little pit on the section. No cracks or brassing. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3102 Parker 105
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3102: Parker: 105
Gold-filled "bark" trim on a Parker 105 fountain pen is about one of the neatest designs we've ever experienced in a vintage pen! Yep. The cap and barrel look like the trunk of a tree...a gold tree. Better, yet, it has a SEMI-FLEX nib! The condition of the cap and barrel is nearly perfect without any dents, scratches or engravings. The small black section and nib top have some surface scratches. However, the 14k gold nib starts extra fine, but you can manipulate it to about 1mm wide. It does have a little feedback. The pen fills with its original pressure-bar converter, but you can also use modern Parker converters or ink cartridges! 13.2cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3107 Sheaffer Sentinel
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $75.00
Vintage Pens: 3107: Sheaffer: Sentinel
TouchDown-filling vintage pens, such as this Sheaffer Sentinel, are among the hottest selling pens on our site these days. We just can't keep them in stock. It likely has something to do with the amazingly inventive filling system and affordability. This model comes complete with a working ink sac and O-ring. The ink-view window is remarkably clear. There's some light-to-moderate wear on the barrel and cap, but there are no cracks and it is in great working order. Sheaffer considered this a "TM" or "Thin Model." It has a two-tone 14k gold nib that writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3112 Sheaffer Lifetime
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3112: Sheaffer: Lifetime
Jade green looks pretty good on our oversized senior Sheaffer Lifetime fountain pen. The barrel great color, while the cap has a little more discoloration. Still, there are no cracks. Our vintage pen comes with a straight clip that does feature brassing on the ball. Its barrel imprint starts strong on the top line but gets weaker as you go down. There is a clear "D" imprint on the flat end of the tail. Click the headline for a great close-up of the original 14k gold nib. Writing with it is a firm, fine, wet treat. We recently acquired this from a collector who restored all of his pens. This has a good working ink sac in it. 13.1cm capped.
