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 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.

This vintage fountain pen and ballpoint set forms part of the successful Targa range produced by the Sheaffer Pen Company. This particular set, issued between 1976 and 1980, is in sterling silver with a straight line pattern and chrome plated trim. Both ends of the fountain pen and the crown of the ballpoint have a black inlay and both items are hallmarked which means they were produced for the UK or French market no later than 1980. As you would expect they both have the Sheaffer "Lifetime" dot on the clip. You will see from the montage that condition is very good and there is minimum age wear. The fountain pen sports the stylish Sheaffer 14ct long gold inlaid nib with a medium point which states "Sheaffer USA 585 14k". The fountain pen has a twist ink filler unit fitted that will allow you to use bottle ink. This can be removed to fit a Sheaffer ink cartridge if you prefer. (Be aware that 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 is a sizeable fountain pen measuring 134 mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end and, whilst being well balanced, it is also a good weight in the hand. The ballpoint is a twist expel/repel system and is 128mm long. It has a blue ink refill in place. The Targa range is fast becoming highly collectable and, with its large range of finishes, is an interesting model to collect. This particular set represents the luxury end of the Targa range, hallmarked writing instruments crafted in sterling silver and a pleasure to use. All fountain pens are professionally serviced 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 where you may select your method of payment.

This exceptionally popular fountain pen range 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 in the early 1970’s and forms part of their “Place Vendôme” series. The “Ecossais” pattern on silver plate over brass has eleven grid bands on the cap. The model is often confused with the later issued “Prince de Galles” that has only seven. “Ecossais” is French for Scottish – and as you will see from the montage the pattern is similar to tartan. Around the lip of the cap are the words “Parker Made in France”,the Parker logo and the 30 microns mark – indicating an earlier model. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel - this was designed to increase the writer’s grip. The smooth medium point nib states “France 750 Parker”.  The feed has “M” on the reverse. The section threads are plastic and the tassies flat. It is filled either by using the squeezebox filler unit as shown in the montage 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 fair to good with some brassing as you will see in the montage and I have priced it accordingly. It measures 127mm with cap on and 142mm with cap on barrel end. A slim, elegant and, in this pattern, quite rare late vintage fountain pen in an attractive 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 or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection as a fair to good example of its type. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before dispatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you are also able to select your payment method.

Here we have a Parker 51 Duo of fountain pen and ballpoint. Parker extended the “51”range to include Duo sets with the addition of the ballpoint in the UK around 1956. The sets were understandably very popular at the time. However, unusually this particular duo example in black with rolled gold cap was made in Argentina in the late 1950’s/early 60’s for the South American market. The aerometric (squeezebox) filler unit states “Parker Industria Argentina” with the Parker logo. The fine point nib states “Parker Octanium Industria Argentina”. The advantage of the Octanium nib is its resistance to wear and its strength. Thus it has a firm point which some prefer to a gold nib. The cap text on both fountain pen and ballpoint states “Industria Argentina” and the Parker logo. Both cap crowns carry a black tassie. The ballpoint takes modern Parker refills and has a blue medium refill in place. The fountain pen measures 139mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end. The ballpoint length is 127mm. Condition is good with very minor age wear. A classic Parker set to either add to a collection, present as a gift or to have for personal everyday use if you prefer a firm nib and a fine point. All fountain pens are professionally serviced 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 where you will also be able to select your payment method.

The Parker “61” was launched in the U.S.A.1956 and in 1964 in the U.K. with Parker proudly announcing its revolutionary filling system. The “61” with its stylish arrow inset into the pen nib shell, pointing the way to the nib, is quite distinctive and rather elegant. This particular example has a classic grey finish with lustraloy caps and the Parker grey “jewel” on the cap crown and barrel end. The matching Parker rotary pencil also carries the cap “jewel” and they come in the original Parker presentation box. The nib has a smooth medium point. The cap text states “Parker Made in England” and carries the Parker logo. The fountain pen measures 135mm with cap on and 144mm with cap on barrel end. The pencil measures 128mm. On unscrewing the barrel you will find the Parker capillary filling mechanism. This exposes the filler unit (illustrated in the montage) which is immersed in the ink bottle to draw the ink into the filler by capillary attraction. This means that the pen can be filled without immersing the nib end. 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. The Parker “61” has a distinctive and elegant design and this set will sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection. They will also provide good service as everyday writers. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order. You may choose your method of payment at checkout.

This attractive vintage fountain pen, seen as a variation on the “61”, was launched by Parker in 1969 and called the “65”. As you will see from the montage, instead of an arrow on the shell tip as you have with the “61”, the “65” has a distinctive open cropped nib which, it was felt, would offer more flexibility than the “61”.  It was available in a variety of finishes and this particular example is in a finish Parker called their “Cloud” series issued in the 1970’s. This pattern dating from 1976 is called “Cumulus” – the image on the rolled gold finish resembles a heavy cloud formation. You will note from the montage that the “Cumulus” pattern wraps itself around the whole of the pen and is relieved by a broad plain rolled gold band on the pen cap that carries the words “Parker - Made in England” with the Parker logo.This fountain pen currently has a squeezebox fill system but will also take modern Parker ink cartridges. It is a good size pen measuring 134mm with cap on and 146mm with cap on barrel end. The push on cap is currently a snug fit but this will ease with use. The nib states “Parker 14k 585” and has a smooth medium point nib. This vintage fountain pen is in good condition and will serve very well as an everyday writer but will also sit comfortably in a collection illustrating the middle ground of the Parker transition from “61” to “65” and then to the “75”. All fountain pens are professionally serviced 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 where you may select your method of payment.
