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 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. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and are 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.

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 is in a pattern Parker called Grange d’or – or Fine Barley which is on gold plate over a brass base. It dates from c1983. Around the lip of the cap are the words “Parker Made in France LE” and the Parker logo. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel which is designed to increase the writer’s grip. The nib states “Parker 75cm France”. The feed has “F” on the reverse denoting a fine point and this is in fact the case. 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 squeezebox 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 very good with only minor age wear. It measures 127mm with cap on and 14mm with cap on barrel end. It is a pleasing weight in the hand and the cap has a comforting click when replacing it on the barrel. An attractive and substantial fountain pen it is suitable for everyday use, if you prefer a fine nib 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.

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.

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 substantial vintage fountain pen was made by Waterman in the 1920’s. The 9ct gold overlay on hard rubber is in a rare and attractive pattern called “Line and Dot”. The added attraction of this particular example is that the gold is overlaid on a hard rubber in a pattern Waterman called “Ripple” in a colour they termed “Ripple Rose”. It is this combination of 9ct overlay line and dot pattern on Ripple-Rose which makes it an exceptionally rare example. Until this time vulcanized rubber was only available in black but Waterman perfected a method of incorporating a colour. The range included  “Ripple Blue-Green, “Ripple Olive” and this the “Ripple-Rose”. Waterman advertisements of the period stated “Nothing so beautiful in pens has ever been produced before” . The cap has a Waterman ball ended “Clip Cap” of the period. The barrel gold markings state“FDW 9 375” (rubbed) and hallmark for London 1923. FDW stands for Frank D. Waterman. His uncle, Lewis E. Waterman, was the founder of Waterman in 1888 - it was his nephew Frank who became the company ambassador abroad. He was entrusted with the distribution of Waterman pens in England via the London stationer L.G. Sloane. Normally you would find more markings around the smooth tapered area at the bottom of the barrel but these have been smoothed off over time. The medium flexible nib writes a wet line and states “Waterman’s Ideal REg.U.S. PAT. OFF. 2 Made in U.S.A.”. Condition is good with a minor ding on the crown of the cap. It is also worth noting, as you will see from the montage, that the personalization lozenge is engraved with the initials “FCP” – this is reflected in the price. Its weight is 26grams and it measures 140mm with cap on and 173mm with cap on barrel end. This is a rare and exceptional vintage fountain pen, evocative of its era of style and elegance and it will sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection. It is also suitable to use everyday. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and are 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.

This vintage fountain pen  - the Parker 45 was launched in the U.S.A. in the 1960’s and proved to be a very popular economy pen. It was named after the famous Western pistol and was the first pen Parker issued which would take an ink cartridge. The model subsequently became available in the U.K. and this example the Parker 45 Harlequin with its Black Shield pattern dates from 1981 and was phased out in 1983. Whilst it will take Parker ink cartridges, this particular example also comes with the Parker squeezebox fill system fitted. The nib is made of steel and has a firm fine to medium point. The text around the cap lip states “Parker Made in England AE”. Interestingly it has a “Parker U.S.A.” squeezebox filler unit. It is a long slim and very stylish pen measuring 135mm with cap on and 149mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is very good. It will serve well as an everyday writer but is also worth a place in a vintage fountain pen collection as an example of Parker design that was only available for a short period.

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. 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.

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 138 mm with cap on and 165mm with cap on barrel end. The ballpoint is a twist expel/repel system and is 130mm 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.

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 115mm with cap on and 140mm 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.
