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, with its gold plated finish is one of the earlier models and dates from around 1976. The cap carries the words “Sheaffer U.S.A. Gold Electroplated” and the Sheaffer “crown”. It has the stylish Sheaffer inlaid nib that provides a smooth, firm, medium point. The text on the nib states "Sheaffer U.S.A. 585 14k". Condition is very good. It comes in its original red presentation box and this has obviously protected it well. As you would expect it has the Sheaffer "Lifetime" dot on the gold plated clip. The cap has a plain area for personalization and you will note that it also carries the original retail sticker that states “Targa 1005 Medium”. This attractive and stylish fountain pen has a Sheaffer squeezebox filler unit fitted but you could also use a Sheaffer ink cartridge available from most stationers if you prefer. It is quite a substantial pen in the hand and measures 135mm with cap on and 153mm 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 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 where you may also select your method of payment.

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.

Here is a Parker “51” Trio of vintage fountain pen, ballpoint and expel/repel pencil all in working order. The “51” aerometric filling fountain pen was introduced by Parker in 1948. Its aerodynamic design made it a classic and the plaudits it received over the years both in terms of design and reliability are well deserved. Towards the end of the 50’s Parker extended the “51” range to include Trio sets of which this is a good example. They were understandably popular at the time. This particular trio has a burgundy coloured body with what Parker termed, a “lustraloy” cap that is really brushed steel. All three items are in good condition with only minor age wear and are complete with cap jewels.  The Parker 51 nib is a smooth medium writer and states “585 14k Parker England”. The ballpoint takes modern Parker refills and has a new blue one fitted. The expel/repel pencil contains lead and the original rubber underneath the pencil cap. It will take modern day 0.9mm replacement leads. The fountain pen measures 138mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end. The rotary pencil measures 127mm and the ballpoint 128mm. An excellent vintage writing trio from a respected manufacturer to either add to a collection or to use everyday.

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 Grain d’Orge – 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 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 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 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 are also able to select your payment method.

This lever filling vintage fountain pen was made in England by Conway Stewart. The model is No.475 and this example is unusual in that generally it has a single cap band whereas this is an example of the bandless version dating from around 1937. The jet black finish contrasts well with the rolled gold trim. It has the original Conway clip to the domed cap and the barrel has the original Conway lever. The main barrel text is a little worn but states “The Conway Pen – No.475” with the words “Made in England” lower down. The smooth medium point nib states “Conway Stewart 14ct Gold 3”. The 475 is a healthy size Conway measuring 128mm with cap on and 165mm with cap on barrel end. Apart from general minor age wear and some brassing to the trim, this vintage Conway is in good condition and will serve well as a classic Conway every day 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 and a gift box is available free on request at checkout where you may also select your method of payment.

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.

The Parker “61” was first launched in the UK in 1964. This particular example, issued in 1966 and discontinued in 1969 is the “61 Presidential”. This exceptional set, comprising fountain pen and propelling pencil, is made of 9ct gold. The weight of the fountain pen is 26g and the pencil 24g. As you can see from the montage they are well hallmarked. 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 and on the end of the fountain pen barrel, combines to create a quite distinctive Parker design. Parker called the attractive pattern of lines and dots “Perlé” – it gives both items a bit of sparkle. The text around the cap lip on both carries the hallmark and states "Parker 61 Made in England". The pair is a good weight and balance in the hand and 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. 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), it is a reliable and clean filling method. Condition on both items is very good with very minor age wear and the barrel lozenge is clear of personalization. The capillary filler has been used to fill the fountain pen for testing and it is in working order. The expel/repel pencil is also in working order and currently has lead in the chamber. The replacement lead size is 0.9mm. The fountain pen measures 133mm with cap on and 142mm with cap on barrel end. The pencil is 129mm in length. The Parker “61” has a distinctive and elegant look and this, combined with a 9ct gold finish, make this an exceptional example of Parker at their best. It will sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection but equally they will serve well 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. 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 vintage fountain pen - the Parker “51”, was launched in England by Parker in the early 50’s. 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. It has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”. This particular version, rarer than most, has a grey body and the sought after rolled silver cap with rolled gold clip. This particular cap was introduced in 1952 and it is believed to have been produced only in England it carries the text “Parker R. Silver” this dates it as an early cap c1952. It comes with a smooth Parker 51 fine to medium point nib that states “585 14K Parker England”. The grey barrel (Parker called it Navy Grey) has a faint imprint of “Parker Made in England”. Condition of both pen and cap is good with some age wear to the rolled silver cap as can be seen in the montage. 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. It measures 138mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end. The Parker "51" was an outstandingly popular fountain pen in its day and it remains a stylish and extremely good “work horse” 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. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you may also select your method of payment.

This aerometric filling vintage fountain pen range was introduced by Parker in 1953 and, with its solid colour range and rolled gold trim, was well received. It sold well until the range was discontinued in 1962. This particular example, in a colour Parker termed simply “Green” dates from 1954 and is one of the larger models. The green is actually lighter than illustrated. It is a chunky and long vintage pen measuring 138mm with cap on and 155mm with cap on barrel end. The cap has the Parker single decorative chevron band and the Parker arrow clip. The barrel imprint has faded over the years but what can be seen states “Parker Duofold”. The good size medium to broad point nib is a slightly wet writer and states “Parker 14k England”. The filler unit is a very simple squeezebox method. This classic vintage fountain pen is in good condition with only minor age wear and is suitable for everyday use. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch.
