Parker 75 Prototype Vintage Pen

This is a 1975 Parker 75 cartridge/converter-fill in Smooth Gold-Plate. Smooth Arrow clip (no feathers on the arrow). Dimpled tassies. Parker 75 gripping section with indexed chrome-plated ring. What is extraordinary about this triangular gripping section is that it is a prototype of the section not introduced until the manufacture of the pen was transferred to France in 1988, made for the wide feed (no nib/feed unit included), but has the 1964 chrome-plated, indexed ring, never put into production with the section for the wide feed. So we not only have a prototype pen (looking very much like a T-1 75), but a prototype gripping section as well! Near mint. Item #226 in Catalog #84.

Parker 51 Red Band Vintage Pen

This is a 1946 Parker 51 RED BAND button-fill in Black with Brushed Lustraloy (stainless steel) cap. Very rare filler mechanism, made only in 1946-7! Shown open so you can see the button. This is the later version, with aluminum blind cap threads (the earlier version has plastic threads). Parker had a problem with the 51 collectors flooding – this system was supposed to solve that issue. The system was so difficult to repair Parker soon dropped it from production, replacing it in 1948 with the Aerometric-filler. I’ve restored this one to perfect working condition. All original parts and guaranteed working order. Medium/fine nib. Near mint+. Shown with blind cap removed.

Item #214 in Catalog #84.

Omas Pagliero Plevonia Vintage Fountain Pen

This 1935 Omas Pagliero is a Plevonia button filler in Khaki Green Laminated (Parker Vacumatic look-a-like), set off with Black ends. Pagliero was founded 1917 in Settimo Torinese, Italy and made buttons and other celluloid items. Their fountain pen production started in the mid-1920s. By the 30s they produced only pens. This Plevonia was almost certainly made by Omas for Pagliero, as it is a design match in every way to other Omas pens of the period, and even has an “Omas Extra” nib (medium/fine, extra-flexible). Also, the Pagliero factory produced only mid-range pens and this is clearly a high end pen. Features gold filled trim, including the wide center “Greek Key” cap band and rollerball clip. This is the only size in which the Plevonia was manufactured. Near mint.

Item #163 in Catalog #84.

Hutcheon #4 Vintage Fountain Pen

This vintage fountain pen is a 1925 Hutcheon in a #4 size – it is a lever-filler in Red Mottled Hard Rubber. Hutcheon was founded around 1915 in Brooklyn, NY to manufacture mechanical pencils and fountain pens. One brother, Alfred, had worked for Mabie Todd (NYC) for almost 20 years, so it is no surprise that Hutcheon pens and mechanical pencils are Mabie Todd look-a-likes. This example has a wonderful barrel imprint, “Property of NY Telephone Company.” Gold filled trim and a fine, semi-flexible nib.

Item #157 in Catalog #84.

Vintage Pen Big Ben Model 6K

Vintage Pen Big Ben Model 6K

This is a 1935 Big Ben Model 6K Faceted BF in Green Pearl Web. GFT. Niels Benzion, of the Benzion Trading Company in Copenhagen, worked at Wahl Eversharp in US. When he returned to Denmark he opened an agency to sell Wahl Eversharp pens. Because they sold all they could import (there were strict import quotas), and still had unfilled demand, they started manufacturing button-fill pens in 1933 under the Big Ben name (their piston-fill pens were made for them by a German manufactured, Hebborn & Co). No wonder this pen looks so much like a Wahl Doric! Medium/fine nib. Near mint. Item #147 in Catalog #84. Item #146 is the matching twist-activated pencil for the fountain pen.

Vintage Pen Aurora Etiopia Fountain Pen

Vintage Pen Aurora Etiopia

This is a 1936 Aurora Etiopia eyedropper-fill “Trench-Pen” in Ivory Casein. GFT, including the wide “Greek Key” cap band in the center of the two narrower bands. Aurora’s marketed the pen as having been manufactured for Italian military officers who were engaged at the time in the war in Abyssinia (Ethiopia), it was never commercially available in shops and the fact remains that it is a very rare item. The cap adorns an engraved eagle and the blind cap unscrews for ink pellet storage. Fine, flexible nib. User grade (and priced accordingly), but so rare and of historical importance, I am offering it here. Slight discoloring of the cap and barrel; sealed cap lip cracks; two spots of minor pitting to the celluloid barrel. Item #146 in Catalog #84.
