This English vintage fountain pen was made around 1942 by the Parker Pen factory, most likely at the old Valentine pen works at Newhaven. Parker, having taken over the Valentine Pen Co. to ensure UK Parker production, had by this stage begun to phase out Valentine pens and by 1945 manufacturing had concentrated on Parker model production. This particular model is the Victory MKI and it was produced in colours similar to Parker’s successful Duofold range – in this instance the finish is termed lined rose, silver and burgundy marble. As you will see the rolled gold Parker ball ended clip was still in use at this time. This particular MKI is the bandless model and therefore has no cap band. The barrel imprint reads “Parker Victory Reg T.M.”. It has a 14k warranted 1st quality medium point nib and measures 130mm with cap on and 158mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is fair to good. You will see that the clip ring sits slightly proud of the cap and appears to be a replacement from a larger model and there are two old marks on the area above the clip. The cap and barrel though are in pretty good condition with the barrel having a visible imprint. So not an A1 example but this is reflected in the price. A  classic vintage Parker, in a pleasing and popular finish, which will serve well as an everyday writer. All vintage 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 button filling vintage fountain pen was introduced by Parker in 1928. It is generally agreed that production discontinued in late 1929 - hence these pens are quite rare today. Parker’s advertisement of the time for this model called it the “Three Fifty” as it cost $3.50. It stated We passed a tray containing a dozen different kinds of pens to seven hundred people. They selected this one….modern in design and colour – a smarter looking pen you’ve never seen.” They called the pattern and colour “Modern Blue-and-White”  or “Modernistic Blue”- these days it is referred to as the “True Blue”. This unusual and rare vintage fountain pen has been listed in fair to good condition because, as is common with this model, the colours become more muted over the years, due to the interior ink sac and handling. The extent to which this occurs affects its value and is therefore reflected in the price. The cap has a Parker ball ended gold fill clip and two cap bands. The barrel has the very feint imprint of “Geo S. Parker Fountain Pen – Made in Canada”. The nib states “Parker Pen Canada 3” and has a smooth medium point. It measures 125mm with cap on and 155mm with cap on barrel end. A modern Limited Edition version was issued by Parker in 1988. This original 1920’s example of a hard to find vintage fountain pen is in working order and in fair to good condition - suitable for everyday use or to add to a 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. 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 137mm with cap on and 155mm 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.

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 140mm with cap on and 150mm 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.

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 137mm with cap on and 145mm 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. My apologies for the workbench dust on the montage.

This small, but perfectly formed, vintage fountain pen was made by Parker in the early 1920’s. It is a gold fill overlay Baby Lady Duofold – sometimes called the “Midget” and quite a rare pen. It follows the button filling style of the Parker Duofolds of the period and has the innovative Parker “Lucky Curve” feed. Also in common with the fashion of the period it has a ring on the top of the cap rather than a clip. This enabled ladies to wear it on a ribbon or chain around the neck or gentlemen to hang it from a watch chain. The text around the cap lip states “Parker Fountain Pen Gold Filled Patented” and the medium point nib text states “Parker Lucky Curve Pen Made in U.S.A.” As its name suggests it is very small measuring 84mm with cap on and 106mm with cap on barrel end. As such it will require refilling more often than a full size fountain pen. Three alternating design panels interrupted on one side by the clear personalization lozenge enhance the gold fill overlay. Condition is good with only minor age wear. A delightful vintage Parker fountain pen to either add to a collection or use 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. My apologies that the quality of the photograph is not as good as I would like and this will be rectified as soon as possible.

This unusual vintage fountain pen was made in England by Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd. under the “Swan” brand name around 1938. It is unusual in that whilst it is a plastic body its finish is in a pattern called “silver grey snakeskin”. There were a series of snakeskin finishes -  blue, green, ruby and silver grey and they are not that easy to find these days in good, and working, order. The design is enhanced by having a chrome lever and trim for the“Swan” clip. The barrel imprint states “Mabie Todd & Co. Ltd., Swan Self Filler – Made in England” – with the “Swan” emblem. The top of the cap also carries the “Swan” emblem. The nib is a Swan No.1” - 14ct. with a medium to slightly broad nib with some flex. A medium sized pen it measures 155mm with cap on barrel end and 125mm with cap. Condition is good with minimal age wear. An unusual and quite rare vintage fountain pen from an excellent manufacturer. It is suitable to either add to a collection or, with its smooth medium to slightly broad nib, to use as an everyday writer.

This delightful – and rare - lever filling vintage fountain pen was made by the Conklin pen company in Ohio around 1925. Conklin are better known for their earlier crescent filling system – they introduced their first lever filling fountain pen in 1923. This model – the No. 26P – is made of hard rubber - the original chased design has been worn smooth with time. What we do still have though is the ornate cap crown and ring. It was the fashion at the time to make available to customers a ring top model that was designed to have a ribbon or chain through it to enable ladies to wear it around the neck or gentlemen to hang it from a watch chain. The barrel carries the imprint “Conklin Toledo Ohio Reg.U.S. Pat. Office” and the model number “No.26P”. The smooth medium to slightly broad gold nib states “Conklin 2 Toledo”. It is a small vintage fountain pen measuring 11mm with cap on and 14mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good overall, there is some age wear as mentioned earlier and more than one ding in the cap crown, but this is reflected in the price and it remains a good example of its type and a stylish reflection of its era. It will sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection but will also serve as an everyday writer.

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 140mm with cap on and 152mm 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.

This quite rare vintage fountain pen and pencil set, part of a purchased collection, was made in the U.S.A. by Parker. It is a premier model Parker “51” Vacumatic fountain pen and pencil set in a colour Parker termed India Black. The fountain pen is double “jewelled” denoting their top of the range pens at the time. The “jewel” is the grey pearlised plastic circle inset into the cap crown and the barrel end. The fountain pen gold filled cap carries the Parker “Blue Diamond” emblem which was Parker’s answer to the “Sheaffer white dot – guaranteed for life”. It has nine grouped vertical lines with a gap between, a smooth area for personalization and a chevron band at the cap lip. At the edge of the cap lip are the words “1/10 16k Gold Filled Made in U.S.A. You will notice a join two thirds down the barrel. This is where the barrel unscrews to reveal the vacumatic plastic speedline pump filler. Also on the barrel near the clutch ring are the words “Parker ‘51” 5. Made in U.S.A. (denoting a production date of the third quarter of 1950). The original USA nib (dated 1950) had a very fine point that even I found difficult to use. This has been changed to a Parker English nib that has a smooth medium point. For the purist I have kept the original nib and this can, if you wish, be sent with the set or placed back into the fountain pen. The pencil has the same cap “jewel” but, as one would expect, no “Blue Diamond”. The cap has the same pattern, text and clear personalization lozenge. It is an expel/repel (rotary) pencil and is in working order. As you will see from the montage the set comes in the original leather effect hard covered case. Fountain pen, pencil and case are in very good condition The fountain pen measures 136mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end. The pencil measures 135mm. An excellent vintage fountain pen set, part of Parker’s history and an ideal addition to a vintage fountain pen collection. It will also serve well as an everyday writing set.  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.
