It has two thin and one broad cap band. The barrel states “Conway Stewart 100” “Made in England”. The original large Conway nib states: “Duro Conway Stewart 14ct Gold 20” and has a medium point. The condition is good with only minor age wear. It measures 13.5cm with cap on and 17cm with cap on barrel end. A substantial classic vintage fountain pen. One to add to a collection and/or use as an everyday writer. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. and bench tested prior to offering for sale.

The Parker 51 aerometric fountain pen and repeater pencil set was manufactured by Parker in the U.S.A. and introduced in 1949. The model’s 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. It has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”. This particular “51” set, part of a recently purchased collection, is a U.S.A. Mk I production type 2 and dates from around 1955. It comes in its original Parker box. The gold fill cap on each item carries the Parker branding and the Parker grey “jewel” in the cap crown. The body colour which Parker termed “Teal Blue” is a mix of green and blue which is quite difficult to reproduce - but the montage is very near it. The Parker 51 nib has a fine to medium point. Both the fountain pen and pencil are in good condition with only minor age wear and some brassing to the trim. The original Parker 51 box is also in good condition and carries the “51” emblem. The text around the pen cap reads “Parker Made in U.S.A. 1/10 12k Gold Filled” and the pencil cap states “Parker 1/10 12k Gold Filled” with wording around the barrel stating “Parker Made in U.S.A. 53”. The fountain pen measures 13.5cm with cap on and 15cm with cap on barrel end. The pencil is 13.2cm long.  “51”’s are always a good workhorse - suitable for everyday use and, particularly in this case with its original box, for adding to a “51” 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. Filling instructions will be sent with your order.

The classic vintage fountain pen was made by Sheaffer c1970 and it incorporates their popular “Touchdown” piston filling method as used in their PFM range. This particular example has a gold fill overlay with the cap sporting the Sheaffer white dot lifetime guarantee. The inlaid Sheaffer nib has a medium to slightly broad smooth point and the barrel and cap have attractive alternating lined and clear panels. It measures 14cm with cap on and 15cm with cap on barrel end. Condition is fair to good with some general age wear on the overlay and a very minor pinprick indentation to the left of the clip. This is reflected in the price. A good every day writer. My apologies for the light reflection in the montage. 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. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout.

The Parker “61” was launched in the UK in 1964. This particular example, the “61 Classic” with its satin lustraloy cap and chrome plated clip dates from 1966 and it forms part of a recently purchased collection. The body and nib shell colour Parker termed simply “Grey”. In the montage it is showing as slightly darker than it is. The elegant styling of the Parker "61" with its arrow pointing the way to the nib has made it a classic of the period and in this instance the Parker grey pearl “jewel” in the cap crown and the barrel end sit well with the classic grey finish. On unscrewing the barrel of the pen you will find the Parker capillary filling mechanism. This is immersed in the ink to draw the ink into the filler by capillary attraction. This means that the pen can be filled without immersing the nib into the ink bottle. Whilst at the time a number of owners found this filling method unsatisfactory in the longer term, it was simply because it depended upon the owner to use the pen on a regular basis, and refill it, so preventing ink drying in the capillary filler. Used correctly it is a reliable and clean filling method. It comes in its original Parker hard case box. Condition is very good. The capillary filler has been used to fill the fountain pen for testing and it is in working order. The cap text states “Parker Made in England” and carries the Parker logo. The barrel carries the “61” branding at the neck. It measures 13.7cm with cap on and 14.5cm with cap on barrel end The Parker “61” has a distinctive and elegant look and this example, in this condition and in its original box will sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection. It will also provide good service as an everyday writer. 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 on request at checkout and filling instructions will be sent with your order.

This exceptional vintage fountain pen was created by The Parker Pen Company in Newhaven (holders of the Royal Warrant) in 2002 to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the accession to the throne of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It is called the Duofold Accession fountain pen (not to be confused with the Sonnet Special Jubilee Edition). With a limited edition of 1,952 made available worldwide and only 100 of those released in the UK, (this example is number 1,598) it is a writing instrument of exceptional quality and design. It has a matt 23 carat gold plated finish on cap and barrel and both bear the etched inscription “Queen Elizabeth II by the Grace of God, Queen of this Realm and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith’. It also has a 23 carat gold trim and section and a 1.5 carat amethyst set in the crown of the cap. It has a specially created nib, which has a medium point, and is engraved ER II. The bottom of the barrel has the Jubilee logo. It comes, as you will see from the montage, with its Certificate of Authenticity. Not shown, but also included, is the accompanying booklet containing images from the Queen’s 50 year reign. Condition is excellent. The nib appears to have been dipped in ink and wiped but the pen has not been filled. It is being sold complete with the original packaging, including the outer box, the original box of ink cartridges and bottle ink filler unit. It was purchased by a Parker employee as a “staff sale” in 2002. Whilst not a fountain pen of great age, it was released to commemorate the service of a great Queen and is as unique as its namesake. It will be an exceptional addition to a fountain pen collection.

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.

Pen and pencil combinations “Combi’s” have been around in their very basic form since the 1840’s but they were at the height of their popularity on both sides of the Atlantic from the late 1920’s until the end of the 1930’s. It is a clever idea of combining a fountain pen on one end and a pencil on the other. You carry it in your pocket with the cap on the fountain pen end. The fountain pen nib states “Made in U.S.A. 6” – so it is a decent size nib with a firm medium point. The pointed cap has a broad fretwork design band around the lip and a ball ended clip with “S” at the top. I’m afraid I have been unable to track down the actual manufacturer but it is likely that it was made in America around 1935. The barrel has a humped lever with spade end. The pencil mechanism is also in working order and has a good length lead in place. It comes with a small phial of replacement Mabie Todd leads - but it will take the standard “Yard–O-Led” when these run out. On test I have found the pen/pencil combination very useful and pleasing to use. Condition is good with only minor age wear apart from the cap crown which has some crazing – but this is reflected in the price. It is a substantial and unusual vintage fountain pen in a most attractive colour. It measures 15.3cm with the cap on the nib end. It will work well as an everyday writer (keep it topped up with ink) but is also an unusual item to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. This vintage fountain pen and pencil combination was not serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. but has performed well on bench test and we are satisfied that it will continue to do so. A further inspection will be carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request. Filling instructions will be sent with your order.

This vintage pen is one of the successful Targa range - a model produced by the Sheaffer Pen Company from 1976 to 1999. This particular version dates from around 1990 and is the 2nd edition of 1083 with a quite rare finish in laque spiral black. The spiral (or cable twist) decoration, whilst being a little difficult to see here unless you enlarge the montage, is very striking and is offset by the smooth gold plated clip and cap top. You will note the thin cap band (the first edition had a wider cap band) is repeated near the bottom of the barrel. Around the cap are the words “Sheaffer U.S.A.”. It has the stylish Sheaffer 14ct gold inlaid nib with a medium to slightly broad point which states "Sheaffer U.S.A. 585 14k". Condition is very good with only minor age wear. As you would expect it has the Sheaffer "Lifetime" dot on the clip. Filling is by insertion of an ink cartridge, preferably Sheaffer but an international cartridge size will suffice. In common with other cartridge fill pens when first fitting a new cartridge you need to encourage the ink to flow through from the cartridge to the nib with a slight squeeze of the cartridge. It is quite a heavy, substantial pen in the hand and measures 13.7cm with cap on and 15.5cm with cap on end. The Targa range, with its large range of finishes, is an interesting model to collect as well as a pleasure to use everyday. 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 on request.
