This fine silver filigree overlay vintage fountain pen was made in the USA by Waterman c1929. The silver filigree overlay pattern is called “Basketweave” and was produced in both a gold fill and sterling silver overlay finish. The cap has the word “Waterman’s Sterling” around the rim. The ball ended clip has the Waterman’s “Ideal” logo, “Sterling” around its crown and“Clip Cap” along its length. The barrel has the original Waterman lever complete with “Ideal” logo. The top of the barrel is marked “Sterling”. The silver 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). The text that usually appears on this area has worn away with time and (under a glass) you will see there are a number of teeth marks. The very bottom of the barrel has the model number “452”. The medium point nib, whilst not being the smoothest, has some flex and states “Waterman Ideal – New York”For these reasons I have listed this pen as in “fair to good” condition and priced it accordingly. It is a good size vintage fountain pen measuring 14cm with cap on and 17cm with cap on barrel end. It is also an elegant pen and a pleasing weight and balance in the hand. Despite its imperfections it remains a good example of a top quality Waterman pen of the period. It will add value to a vintage fountain pen collection and is also suitable to use everyday - providing many more years of writing service. 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 Parker Duofold Junior fountain pen and pencil set was made in Canada around 1930 and is a classic Parker set of the period. The attractive finish termed “Lapis Blue” was extremely popular at the time and remains so today. It is a short but chunky vintage pen measuring 122mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end. The cap sports the original gold plated Parker ball ended clip which states “PAT SEP 5 16” and two medium width gold plated cap bands. The barrel imprint states “Geo S. Parker, Made in Canada, Parker Duofold”. It has a smooth medium point Parker nib which reads “Parker Duofold Pen Canada D”. 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. The matching pencil also carries the Parker ball ended clip and cap bands. Both pencil and fountain pen are in good working order with only minor age wear, primarily because, although they have been used over the years, they have been kept in the original Parker silk lined “wallet” which accompanies the set. This does have a number of marks on the exterior, as you will see from the montage. It is unusual to find this combination of fountain pen and pencil in the original wallet. Both items are 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. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. The pencil has also been recently serviced. Filling instructions will be sent with your order. If you would prefer this set to be sent within one of our gift boxes rather than the wallet, this is available free of charge on request at checkout.

This lever filling vintage fountain pen was made in England by Conway Stewart. The model is No.286 and this example is unusual in that generally this model has a single cap band whereas this is an example of the bandless version dating from around 1943. The jet black finish contrasts well with the rolled gold trim. It has the original Conway clip to the cap and the barrel has the original Conway lever. The barrel text states “The Conway Stewart - No.286 - Made in England”. The medium point nib text states “Conway Stewart 14ct gold 5”. The 286 is a healthy size Conway measuring 130mm with cap on and 167mm with cap on barrel end. Apart from general minor age wear and some brassing to the trim, this vintage Conway is in good condition. It will serve well as a good 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. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free on request at checkout.

This delightful vintage fountain pen was made in England by Conway Stewart. The "Dinkie" range, first launched in 1922 as "the smallest practical fountain pen every made” was extremely popular for many years. This particular later example - the “560” - dating from c1962 - measures only 107mm with cap on and 133mm with cap on barrel end. Slim and short they are more suited to the smaller hand. The green marble with gold vein colouring sits well with the rolled gold trim. This later Dinkie has a part hooded Conway Stewart nib with a smooth medium point which reads “Conway 14ct Gold”. The text on the barrel reads “Dinkie” 560 Conway Stewart - Made in England”. Condition is listed as fair to good as whilst it has very little age wear it does have a slight lever rattle – this is reflected in the price. Suitable for everyday writing the Dinkie was advertised as “the pen that sells itself”. Please note that being such a small pen the inner sac is also small and therefore it will require filling more often than most. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless otherwise stated 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 upon 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.

This vintage fountain pen and pencil set, part of a recently puchased collection, was made by Parker in America in the late 1940’s. The aerodynamic design of the "51" 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” fountain pen and pencil set has a body colour which Parker termed “Forest Green” - a very dark green and a “51” colour which is quite rare to find today. The cap of the fountain pen is in a smooth polished metal with the Parker branding around the lip of the cap and the light grey Parker “jewel” on the cap crown. The Forest Green barrel covers the aerometric (squeezebox) filling unit the text of which states: “Parker 51 To fill press ribbed bar firmly 4 times. Use dry writing superchrome ink holding pen point down, wipe point with soft tissue. The Parker Pen Co. Made in U.S.A.” The Parker 51 nib has a medium smooth point and reads “Parker Made in U.S.A. RU 1948”. The Forest Green pencil has a matching polished metal cap and the light grey Parker “jewel” on the cap crown. It is a repeater style pencil which is operated by pushing the cap down on the barrel to expose more lead. Both the fountain pen and the pencil are in good condition with only minor age wear. The fountain pen measures 135mm with cap on and 164mm with cap on barrel end. The pencil is 132mm long.  “51”’s are always a good workhorse - suitable for everyday use and, particularly in this colour, 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. A gift box is available free of charge on 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 142mm with cap on and 179mm 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.

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.
