Vintage Pens – Parker Vacumatic Successor

This vintage pen is a 1946 Parker VS “Vacumatic Successor” Mark I button filler in Dark Blue. Brushed Lustraloy (stainless steel) cap. An excellent pen, but it failed in the marketplace as the public now preferred a hooded nib like the Parker 51, to an open nib, like the VS. During the first year of production, a transparent feed was used, made from a then very modern “Lucite.” (It stained easily). The Mark I had an aluminum button under the blind cap. The later model, the 1948 Mark II, used an Aerometric filling system. Fine nib. New-old-stock. Near mint (the cap with a few scars) with original barrel labels.

Vintage Pens – Parker Student Victory Prototype

These 1955 prototypes are Parker Student “Victory” cartridge/converter-fillers – one in White with brushed Lustraloy stainless steel cap, and one in Grey with the same cap. Both feature a dimpled gripping section. When the barrel is removed, it provides access to an area just below the gripping section for the student to add a paper with his or her name under a protective clear plastic sleeve. Features a spring loaded clip. These were never marketed. Alloy nib (medium). New-old-stock. Mint and very rare!

Vintage Parkers are well known, used, and collected, and these Student Victory Prototypes are unusual yet affordable. A great option to consider!

Vintage Pens – Waterman #7 Yellow

This special vintage pen is a 1930 Waterman #7 “Yellow Banded” lever-filler in Red Ripple with the “Yellow ” cap band and corresponding nib. The Yellow nib is described as: medium “rounded, writes smoothly in any direction, suits southpaws” and right-handed writers as well.

Waterman used a color-coding system so buyers could select their style of nib by ‘color’ – identifiable by the color-coded band on the cap and the label on the nib. It was their answer to Wahl Eversharp’s Personal Point pen.

This vintage pen features gold filled trim. A very late version, with a narrower than usual clip, no cap band and a then new “shovel” lever rather than the “globe” lever. Made from leftover parts as Waterman was converting from hard rubber pens to Celluloid pens (with the introduction of the Patrician). A touch of clip ball brassing, otherwise near mint+.Vintage Pens - Waterman #7 Yellow

Vintage Pens Soennecken Safety

Soennecken pens, no longer in production today, was founded by Freidrich Soennecken in 1875. While they sold a vast array of office products, they are most famous for the pen (his main invention is the “round writing” style of calligraphy and the pen nib associated with it), ring binder, and the two-hole punch. He was the first German company to sell fountain pens (they are in his 1890 products catalog).

As a result of the wide range of pens produced by Soennecken throughout the years of production, in addition to their consistent high-quality, Soennecken vintage pens are highly sought-after by collectors.

The first Soenneckens were Safety pens, followed by lever-fillers in 1927, then the button filler with the protective sleeve (their top-of-the “Rheingold” model), and finally, the piston-fillers. WWII had a devastating effect on the then very successful company, but by 1945 they were back in limited production. In the 1950’s they made wonderful pens but priced too high for the market and they failed. By the 1960’s, Soennecken was producing only economy pens. They merged with the French company Bayard to produce new pens but those too failed and Soennecken closed its doors in 1967.

Vintage Pens Soennecken Safety

The 1913 vintage Soennecken Model 11820 Safety eyedropper-fill is a 14K Solid Gold Overlay on black hard rubber. It has an alternating wave-chased and plain paneled finish. The model number on the pen is covered by the overlay. I do believe this is the “20″ size, the largest size manufactured.

Features an extra-fine/fine nib. Minor dents and dings to the cap and barrel, and has been filled (perhaps 100 years ago?), otherwise near mint. Shown open with nib propelled.
