Vintage Pens: 5372 Parker Lucky Curve 2 1/2
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 5372: Parker: Lucky Curve 2 1/2
Parker had mastered button-filling pens long before it came up with the name Duofold. As such, this looks just like a Duofold ringtop fountain pen, but we think it is more accurately called a Parker Lucky Curve 2 1/2. Our vintage pen is in stunningly good condition for possibly being more than 100 years old. There's a light amount of chocolate hazing to its chased black hard rubber cap and barrel. No cracks. Crisp, clean imprints. It was restored with a new ink sac. Mostly the 14k gold Lucky Curve nib writes a smooth fine line, but it does have some semi-flex properties that allow it to reach 1mm. 11.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5369 Sheaffer TouchDown
Filling Mechanism: TouchDown
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 5369: Sheaffer: TouchDown
Pneumatic filling systems are tons of fun and extremely simple to use. That is why we love these Sheaffer TouchDown pens. This one has been restored to great working order. Ready to be a daily workhorse, it isn't in the best cosmetic shape. Its cap and barrel are covered in teeth marks. We aren't sure if this vintage pen is a married cap and barrel, but the teeth marks indicate it has been a pair for some time. You will write a very nice extra-fine to fine line with its two-tone 14k gold nib. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5366 Sheaffer Wasp Clipper
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $99.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 5366: Sheaffer: Wasp Clipper
Sheaffer liked to pretend Wasp was its own independent pen company, but it really was a sub-brand of Sheaffer. Wasp actually was an acronym for "William A. Sheaffer Pen." The Clipper was the model name. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. This brilliant art deco "brown circuit board" design still turns heads. The celluloid is still in great shape. No cracks or egregiously deep scratches. The metal trim has brassing. Unfortunately, we don't have the original nib. We found it with this 14k gold Gem nib. It writes an extra fine to nearly 1mm line with some feedback. We consider it a semi-flex.
Vintage Pens: 5363 Waterman 12
Filling Mechanism: Eyedropper
Era: 1910-1919   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $299.99
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 5363: Waterman: 12
Super Flex fans stand back! This Waterman 12 eyedropper is about to rock your world. From the late 19-teens or early 1920s, this "red" hard rubber pen is in great condition with no cracks or deep scratches. Unfortunately, there is a little wear, but we all show a little wear after 100 years. The flat tail imprint only shows the 1 of what we are pretty sure is a 12. The side barrel imprint is easier to read. The slip cap fits well without any cracks or chips. Of course, we know you are most interested in the vintage pen's 14k gold nib. It is flexi! A size two, it writes a nice medium to a 2mm wide line! The section grip unscrews to load ink. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5362 Waterman 14 PSF
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 5362: Waterman: 14 PSF
Vintage Waterman fountain pens are among the most popular on earth these days, and with good reason. It is all about their delightful 14k gold nibs. Our Waterman 14 PSF has a great semi-flex nib with a little feedback. It goes from medium to about 1.25mm. It isn't a wet noodle and requires a little careful, gentle effort. Fully restored with a new ink sac, this vintage pen is fully functional and still looks nice. Yes, there's a little hazing in the black hard rubber, but there are no cracks. Its tail imprint is weak but legible. The after-market pocket clip is plain to see. Its biggest flaw is that its inkfeed is a little overextended. Yet, this pen is so old and potentially brittle, we didn't want to start pounding away on it with a hammer to reset the feed. It writes well enough.13.4cm capped.

Esterbrook pens were one of the most popular in America during the 1950s. This Esterbrook SJ model is the smaller model of the J-series. It has been fully restored with a new ink sac. Our vintage pen is in good cosmetic condition, too. No cracks and only light wear from use. Click the headline to see its upgraded 9556 nib. It writes a dry, smooth fine line.

Vintage Pens: 5358: Esterbrook: J-9788
Esterbrook pens are fascinating on so many levels. They are the pens that taught baby boomers how to write with an ink pen. They were required by many high schools, journalism schools, secretarial schools and so on. Our black Esterbrook J-model is especially interesting because of its upgraded 9788 nib. It is a steel nib that is FLEXI! AND, IT'S SMOOTH! We find that this nib starts as a fine and grows to a 1mm line. It is a lovely writer! This vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. The pen has some wear from use but no cracks. In spite of some scratches and dings, it still looks nice, overall. Click the headline for close-ups. 12.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5355 Waterman 54 Set
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: FLEXI
Price: $499.99
Vintage Pens: 5355: Waterman: 54 Set
Waterman mastered nib technology in the 1920s, and 100 years later, these nibs are still better than anything on the market. The fountain pen of our Waterman 54 set comes with a real delight of a FLEXI nib. It is just firm enough to allow you to easily maintain a fine line, but then it smoothly gives way to 1mm line. Absolutely dreamy. The vintage pen itself is pretty nice. The 54 was a nice step up from the slimmer 52. The orange pen is made of "red" hard rubber with a black woodgrain design. There are no cracks or deep scratches on the cap or barrel. The section grip was once stained by ink, and the imprint is weak. There is a little brassing on the gold-plated trim. It has been restored with a new ink sac. Its matching pencil still works and is cosmetically better with only brassing on the nose cone. 1.1mm lead. Refills in the tail.
