This unusual and stylish late vintage fountain pen, part of a recently purchased collection, was made by Parker between 1978 and 1982. It was termed the Parker “50” or Parker "Falcon". The nib is an integral part of the section and on its launch Parker advertised it as the second pen without a separate nib – the first being the quill. Its sleek, elegant styling is quite distinctive and the polished nib section is pleasantly offset by the two tone overall brushed metal finish and gold plated section ring and Parker arrow clip. This, the Matte Brown version, believed to have been issued in 1981, is quite rare. It is a slim, elegant pen measuring 13.3cm with cap on and 14.4cm with cap on barrel end. The text around the cap lip states “Parker Made in England AC”. This particular example is a Parker ink cartridge fill. Condition is very good as can be seen in the montage. It is an ideal pen to add to a vintage fountain pen collection or to use as an everyday writer if you like a smooth medium nib. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout.

This vintage pen and pencil set, part of a recently purchased collection, was made in England by Parker around 1953. The aerodynamic design of the Parker 51 fountain pen has made it a classic and the plaudits it has received over the years both in terms of design and reliability are well deserved. It has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”.  This particular example, a set of fountain pen and pencil, has a grey body which Parker called “Navy Grey” (a slightly lighter grey than in the montage) and a Parker lustraloy cap with “jewel” end and arrow clip. The fountain pen has a Parker 51 smooth fine to medium nib. The aerometric filling system is often termed "squeezebox" and is a very simple method of filling the pen with ink by unscrewing the barrel to expose a metal shell covering the ink sac - just press the metal bar and release up to five times and this vintage pen is ready to use. The matching pencil, which is an early propelling type, is in full working order and takes 1.18mm leads which are available on line from Yard O Led.Condition is good with only minor age wear.The fountain pen barrel text reads “Made in England .3”. It measures 13.7cm with cap on and 15cm with cap on barrel end. The pencil measures 13.2cm. This is a good example of a classic vintage Parker fountain pen and pencil set.  It comes in its original hard case with a hinged lid, silk lined branded interior and with Parker branding on the case lid. This classic vintage fountain pen set is in good condition and is suitable to add to a collection or to use as everyday writers. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order.

This Conway Stewart No. 286 was made in England around 1939. The finish is an attractive mix of pale and dark green marble with rolled gold trim. It has the original Conway clip to the cap with one thin cap band. The body has the original Conway lever and the inscription “The Conway Stewart No.286 - Made in England”. The nib text states “Conway Stewart 14ct gold 5” and has a medium point. The 286 is a healthy size Conway measuring 13cm with cap on and 16.2cm with cap on barrel end. Condition I have listed as fair to good as there is quite a lot of brassing to the cap ring and lever. This is reflected in the price. A good everyday writer.

This vintage fountain pen and ballpoint set forms part of the successful Targa range - a very successful model produced by the Sheaffer Pen Company in the U.S.A. - this particular example, issued between 1988 and 1996, has a Garnet Red Ronce lacquer finish with gold plated trim and black inlay on both ends of the fountain pen and the crown of the ballpoint. The fountain pen sports the stylish Sheaffer 14ct gold inlaid nib with a fine to medium point which states "Sheaffer 585 14k". As you will see from the montage there is minimum age wear. Note that the ballpoint has small marks on the gold plated trim of the tip. As you would expect they both have the Sheaffer "Lifetime" dot on the clip. The fountain pen is filled by fitting a Sheaffer ink cartridge. As with most ink cartridges when first fitting you will need to give it a squeeze to push the ink through to the feed. It will also take a standard international size ink cartridge. It measures 13.8 cm with cap on and 16.5cm with cap on barrel end. The ballpoint is a twist expel/repel system and is 13cm long. It has a black ink refill in place that seems to be working well. The Targa range is fast becoming highly collectable and, with its large range of finishes, is an interesting model to collect. The fountain pen is a good writer and a pleasure to use everyday. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout.

This exceptionally popular fountain pen, part of a recently purchased collection, was launched by Parker in the USA in 1964 and, in its various finishes, was produced for the next thirty years. Parker called it the “75” following on from their usage of numbers to denote models which restarted with the “51”. This particular example was manufactured in the Parker factory in France and forms part of their Laqué Collection. It is in their Lapis Lazuli finish and the date code around the cap lip states 2nd quarter of 1984. Also around the lip of the cap are the words “Parker Made in France” and the Parker logo. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel, designed to increase the writer’s grip. The nib states “Parker 585 France 14k”. The feed has “54” on the reverse denoting a broad point. The section threads are plastic and the top of the cap and end of the barrel are dished. It can be filled either by using the twist fill that is in place or by inserting a Parker ink cartridge (as usual with ink cartridges you will need to give the cartridge a squeeze once in position to start the ink flow). Condition is near mint – it has been filled with ink for testing. It measures 13cm with cap on and 14.5cm with cap on barrel end. A slim and elegant late vintage fountain pen in a beautiful finish. It has a pleasing weight in the hand and a comforting click when replacing the cap on the barrel. It is suitable for everyday use, if you prefer a broad point, or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge at checkout.

This fine gold fill filigree overlay vintage eye-dropper filling fountain pen was made by Waterman between 1910 and 1916. The eyedropper filling system was used by Waterman up to 1928. The gold fill filigree overlay pattern is called “Basketweave” and was produced in both a gold fill and sterling silver finish. The gold fill is overlaid on hard rubber, the base material used for a large number of fountain pens at the time. You will note that the far end of the barrel is clear of overlay (as it should be). Engraved into the hard rubber at the very bottom of the barrel is the model number “0512 VP”. It is a clipless model and the “VP” is a Waterman code for Vest Pocket – indicating that it was anticipated that this pen would be carried in a man’s vest pocket – at the time Waterman produced leather pen holders to fit vest pockets to carry the pen upright. At the bottom of the barrel overlay are the words “Waterman’s Ideal Fountain Pen”. The barrel personalisation lozenge is clear. The rim of the overlay on the screw on cap has the words “Waterman’s Ideal Fountain Pen”. This vintage pen is filled by unscrewing the nib unit and using an eye-dropper to take ink from an inkwell and dropping it into the barrel of the pen. The nib unit is then screwed back on to seal the ink into the barrel. It comes with a modern day eye-dropper. On test I have found that on first filling it may take a little patience to allow the ink to flow through to the feed and therefore the nib, but once it has you just need to keep the ink topped up in the barrel from time to time. The nib is a Waterman No. 2 with a medium to broad point with some flex and reads “Waterman’s Ideal Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. America 2”. Condition is good with only minor age wear and some brassing to the overlay. It measures 11.5cm with cap on and 14cm with cap on barrel end. It is an elegant but chunky pen with a pleasing weight and balance in the hand. A fine example of a quality Waterman pen of the period, it will grace any vintage fountain pen collection. It is also suitable to use everyday but perhaps more as a desktop item than one to carry in a briefcase or handbag – or even a vest pocket. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge upon request at checkout.

This iconic Parker Senior Duofold fountain pen, also known as the “Parker Big Red” was made in the USA around 1926 and is a classic Parker fountain pen of the period. It is an early version of this model – denoted by its single raised cap band. It is a very large vintage pen measuring 14.2cm with cap on and 17.9cm with cap on barrel end. The cap sports the original gold plated Parker ball ended clip with the text “Pat.Sep. 5 16 Parker” and a single raised cap band. The barrel imprint is good and states “Geo S. Parker Fountain Pen, Toronto, Canada” with the Parker “Lucky Curve” banner. The “Lucky Curve” relates to the type of feed which was used by Parker until August 1928. From that date the “Lucky Curve” feed was replaced by a more conventional feed but the barrel imprints continued to be used until stocks were exhausted*. Normally this would place it 1928-1930 however the single raised cap band is an indication of an earlier date of manufacture - hence this pen is likely to have had a change of feed to the more conventional “Christmas Tree” type during its lifetime. It has an excellent medium to broad Parker 14ct nib which reads “Parker Duofold Pen Canada”. It fills by unscrewing the blind cap at the bottom of the barrel and pressing in the metal button – then releasing – leaving the nib in the ink for 5-10 seconds to allow ink to enter the interior sac. This classic Parker vintage pen is in good working order with minor age wear and some brassing to the trim. It is an excellent purchase either for everyday use or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout * Reference: Parker Duofold - David Shepherd and Dan Zazove - Surrenden Press 2006

This vintage fountain pen was made by Parker in 1946 and is an example of the third generation of a very successful Parker model called the “Vacumatic”. Originally launched in 1932 as the “Vacuum Filler”, it was advertised as holding 102% more ink than other pens available at the time. The barrel is used as the ink reservoir rather than an ink sac which increases the ink capacity. Filled by a then new style vacuum pump mechanism on the barrel end, it was also advertised as “revolutionary in principle and perfectly marvellous in performance”. It became an accepted and reliable filling method which was also initially used for the Parker 51. You will see from the photographs that this third generation model has the subsequent streamlined plastic plunger filling system which can be easily operated with one hand. The barrel was designed to be slightly transparent which allowed you to see the volume of ink held within it – this was more so with the earlier models. By this period it was available in a variety of finishes. This particular example is in a finish termed “Emerald Pearl” and is greener than the illustration. The barrel imprint states “Parker Vacumatic - Made in Canada - REG. T.M.S. 318582 .6”. The medium point nib has the Parker USA arrow design and states “Parker U.S.A. 6” so a mix of origins between pen and nib which was not unusual at the time. The cap has the Parker gold fill feather arrow clip and one broad decorative cap band. It is a standard length, slightly chunky pen measuring 13.3cm with cap on and 15.3cm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with only minor age wear and slight brassing to trim. An interesting and stylish vintage fountain pen suitable for everyday use or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless otherwise stated and are bench tested prior to offering for sale.

This vintage fountain pen was made by Parker in the U.S.A. around 1955. Its aerodynamic design has made it a classic and the plaudits it has received over the years both in terms of design and reliability are well deserved. Its contribution to design is evidenced by it having been displayed in the Design Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York and it has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”. This particular example has a burgundy body with a gold fill cap. The Parker 51 nib carries the text “Parker Made in U.S.A. RU” and has a smooth medium point. It measures 14cm with cap on and 15.2cm with cap on barrel end. The gold fill cap has the Parker grey “jewel” on the cap crown. Around the cap lip it carries the text “Parker, Made in U.S.A. 1/10 12k Gold Filled” The aerometric filling system is often termed "squeezebox" and is a very simple method of filling the pen with ink by unscrewing the barrel to expose a metal shell covering the ink sac - just press the metal bar and release up to five times and this vintage pen is ready to use. In this example the metal shell also carries U.S.A. markings. Condition is good with only minor age wear and some brassing to the trim. This classic vintage fountain pen, with its U.S.A. origin, is suitable to add to a vintage fountain pen collection and will serve equally well as an every day workhorse.
