This vintage fountain pen is one of the successful Targa range - a model produced by the Sheaffer Pen Company from 1976 to 1999. This particular example, part of their Laque series, is model number 1038 – Green Ronce. It was available between 1978 and 1982. The Laque series was the first Targa to be assembled in the UK from parts made in the U.S.A. The laque is hand finished and polished to achieve a real depth of colour. The pen trim is 23ct gold electroplated and the stylish Sheaffer inlaid nib is 14ct gold with a smooth medium point. As you would expect it has the Sheaffer “Lifetime” white dot on the clip. The pull off/push on cap secures with a satisfying click. It has a squeezebox filling system fitted but you could use a Sheaffer ink cartridge if you prefer. Condition is very good with hardly any age wear. It is quite a substantial pen in the hand and measures 135mm with cap on and 155mm with cap on barrel end. The Targa series, with its wide 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. 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. A currency converter is provided.

This large vintage fountain pen was made by Parker around 1958. It is a Parker Maxima Duofold and it is the largest pen in the very popular Duofold range of the period. The black body and cap highlights well the rolled gold cap trim. The barrel imprint reads “Parker Maxima Made in England” and the large nib carries the text “Parker England 50” - which is the correct nib number for this model. It has a medium to broad point. The aerometric filling method, sometimes called “squeezebox” is very simple to use. As mentioned, this is a substantial vintage fountain pen measuring 142mm with cap on and 165mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with only minor age wear. A good example of this, the largest and most expensive of the Parker Duofold everyday writers in the late 1950’s. 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 are able to select your method of payment.

It was available between 1978 and 1982. The Laque series was the first Targa to be assembled in the UK from parts made in the U.S.A. The laque is hand finished and polished to achieve a real depth of colour. The pen trim is 23ct gold electroplated and the stylish Sheaffer inlaid nib is 14ct gold with a fine to medium point.

This vintage fountain pen and pencil set was made by Parker in 1960. It is a Parker Junior Duofold set and forms part of the very popular Duofold range of the period with its solid black colour and rolled gold trim. It is generally reported that the Junior Duofold was not available until 1962. However the barrel reference on this example has a date code for 1960. Unusually the fountain pen has a broad to medium nib point. The nib text reads “Parker 14k England 10” which is the correct nib number for this model. The barrel text reads “Parker Junior Duofold Made in England 6”. It has an aerometric filling method, sometimes called “squeezebox” which is very simple to use. The fountain pen measures 133mm with cap on and 154mm with cap on barrel end. The matching rotary pencil measuring 118mm in length has been recently serviced and it carries a rubber underneath the pencil cap. It takes 0.92 modern leads. Both items are in good condition with only minor age wear. A good example of Parker everyday writers in the 1960’s – once again ready to use today. 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 are able to select your method of payment.

This lever filling vintage fountain pen was made by Waterman in England in the 1940’s. It is a "W5" with the classic styling of black body and cap and rolled gold trim of three decorative cap bands to the cap lip. The barrel text reads “Waterman’s Made in England W5”. The rolled gold clip also carries the Waterman branding. The nib is unusually a left oblique with a medium point. It reads Waterman’s 14ct W3”. Having tested it as a “right hander” I can verify it is very pleasing to use. It is a good size vintage pen measuring 128mm with cap on and 152mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with only minor age wear. A classic Waterman that will serve very well as an everyday writer. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch.

This tiny nib box was made by a manufacturer called Hinks Wells & Co. in Birmingham around 1900. The Tennis Player is one of a sporting series which included Cricket, Cycling, Football and Boxing. It is in fair to good condition – fair because it is rusty on the back of the tin and good because the image of the Tennis Player is still clear on the front. It is a delightful piece of vintage writing equipment measuring only 45mm (1.5 inches) long by 15mm (half an inch) wide which I am sure will be of interest to collectors and sporting enthusiasts.

The Parker “61” was launched in the UK in 1964. This particular example, the “61 Consort” with its rolled gold cap decorated with vertical and horizontal lines and a grey pearl “jewel” crown is one of the rarest in the “61” range and dates from 1967. It comes with a matching Parker 61 ballpoint and pencil. The elegant styling of the Parker "61" with its arrow pointing the way to the nib combined with the Parker grey pearl “jewel” in the cap crown of each item, creates a quite distinctive Parker design.The cap text on all items states “Parker Made in England 1/5 12ct rolled gold” and they carry the Parker logo. The nib has a smooth medium point. On unscrewing the fountain pen barrel you will find the Parker capillary filling mechanism. This is immersed in the ink to draw the ink into the filler by capillary attraction which is why it was advertised as "The pen that fills itself". This means that the pen can be filled without immersing the nib into the ink bottle. Whilst it depends on the owner to use and refill the pen on a regular basis (so preventing ink drying in the capillary filler), used correctly it is a reliable and clean filling method. Condition on all items is good - there is a minor ding on the cap of the ballpoint and some brassing as can be seen in the montage. The capillary filler has been used to fill the fountain pen for testing and it is in working order. The ballpoint has a new Parker blue refill and has a smooth cap activated system. The expel/repel pencil is also in working order and comes with a phial of replacement Parker leads. The replacement lead size is 0.92. The fountain pen measures 135mm with cap on and 142mm with cap on barrel end. The ballpoint is 128mm long, the pencil 127mm. The Parker “61” has a distinctive and elegant look and this trio of fountain pen, ballpoint and pencil will provide good service as everyday writers. With the addition of the Consort design being one of the rarest in the “61” range, and the capillary filling system, it will also sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection. 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 also select your method of payment. A currency converter tool is there to assist if required.

This unusual and quite striking Parker “51”, using Parker’s vacumatic filling system, has a rolled gold band on the pen barrel. Whilst the band carries the initials “FKH” it is in decorative italic writing and rather enhances the pen. An English pen, it comes with an American converging lines pattern cap that as well as having the grey “jewel” in the cap crown sports the Parker branding and “Blue Diamond” on the clip. The text around the cap lip reads “1/10 16k Gold Filled Made in U.S.A.” The barrel has a feint imprint under the clutch ring but all I can make out is “Made in England”. The smooth medium nib states “Parker Made in Canada 14kt 1947”. So a Canadian nib, an early American cap and an English barrel – it sounds rather odd but it adds up to an attractive and unusual 51. How to date it? Well a nib can always be changed so that is a little unreliable, it is unlikely to be 1947 as 51 caps had begun to change by then, so I have settled on 1945.The vacumatic pump fill system was very popular at the time and provides a clean and easy filling method (Parker changed to the aerometric fill in 1950.) Condition is good with only minor age wear as can be seen in the montage. It measures 136mm with cap on and 152mm with cap on barrel end. So an unusual and striking Parker 51 that will sit well in a collection  (I doubt I will ever see another one like it) but will also serve as a distinctive everyday writer. 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 also select your method of payment.

This vintage fountain pen  - the Parker 45 model - 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. It subsequently became available in the U.K. and this example of the Parker 45 Harlequin has the very rare Red Shield pattern dating from 1981. The line 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 medium point. The text around the cap lip states “Parker Made in England U1”. It is a long slim and very stylish pen measuring 136mm with cap on and 147mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with minor age wear. It will serve well as an everyday writer and is also worth a place in a vintage fountain pen collection. It is an example of a Parker design that was difficult to produce, particularly in this colour and so only available for a short period. 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 also select your method of payment.
