Extraordinary Vintage Pens

1
1905 A.A. Waterman#3 Twist-fill Cone Cap in Gold-filled “Filigree” overlay on BHR. The filigree is reminiscent of the “Parker 16” and may also have been done by Heath of New York. Indicia engraved in script, “AW.” Fine, triple-flexible nib. A ding or two in the cap derby and some upper cap edge brassing, otherwise near mint in original box. Close-up of pen in box.
$800

$1500

5
1950 Montblanc 144 Meisterstuck PIF in Light Green Straight Striped. Multi-times rarer than the green striped! GFT. Broad, oblique, italic nib (shaped like left foot). Near mint.
$2000

1908 Parker 38 “Snake” eyedropper-fill in Gold-filled on BHR. Parker ordered George Heath, a skilled designer of jewelry, to cover a pen with a snake motif, with the motivation of having something eye striking to get his salesmen’s foot into the door of a retailer. The earliest examples have a round cap top and an imprint, just like on this one, which reads “Parker Fountain Pen Pat. 6-30-91 1-3-05 Design Patent Pending.” Even rarer to be found with a ring-top, this being only the second one known. Fine nib. Near mint+. Also made in sterling silver, the Model 37. Interestingly, the original retail price of the gold-filled model was $10.00 while the sterling silver model was only $8.00. This could be the epitome of your collection! Near mint. Close-up of pen in box.
$15000

10
1918 Parker “Black Giant” eyedropper-fill in Black Hard Rubber. Parker’s first “Giant,” the “Red Giant,” introduced in 1909 at $10, failed because the cap was too brittle and Parker was losing too much money honoring their warrantees. This was less of a problem with the “Black Giant,” introduced soon afterwards. These are found clipless, with a “split” clip (open in the back), and a full washer clip, such as this example. They also are found with and without a cap imprint (this example is without). The pen also came in two lengths; this being the longer version. Huge #12 fine nib). Rare, beautiful and very desirable! Crisp barrel imprint with no wear at all. Near mint+
$1500

11
1905 Parker Model 25 “Click-filler” in Black Hard Rubber. NP filler unit. Unusual filling mechanism. The first mechanically filled pen introduced by Parker. Extremely rare, early & short lived. Pressing the top of a bar accessed in a cutout in the barrel releases the filler mechanism which can then be pressed to fill the bladder. Somewhat like the Conklin “Crescent-filler” but with a different locking system than the lock ring. After filling, the user locks the mechanism back in place. Doing so produced a distinctive “click” as it locks. Medium/fine, extra-flexible nib. New-old-stock. Mint. You’ll never find a nicer example!
$1500

12
1906 John Holland Model 52 “Pull-Filler”in gold-fill Repousse on BHR. Unusual filling mechanism. Circles of high repousse roses on an etched “bark” background. Exquisitely beautiful! Sometimes called the “saddle-fill, since it’s a saddle shaped device the user lifts to fill the pen. Holland claims to have started fountain pen manufacture in 1865, and introduced this particular filling mechanism in 1906 (a year after they introduced their “sleeve-fill” pens), and used it until 1918. George Parker was a Holland distributer until he started his own pen company by improving on the Holland feed! Medium/fine, extra-flexible nib. Near mint in original velvet lined, brown leather box (box shows wear). Close-up of pen in box.
$2000

13
1927 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in Mandarin Yellow. GFT. Absolutely beautiful with a deep, crisp banner imprint. Except for the slightest shade of color difference where the barrel was covered by the cap, near mint+. It would be hard to find a nicer example.
$1500

$1600

15
1899 Waterman 222 Taper Cap eyedropper-fill in half-covered Sterling Silver Repousse “Chased” pattern (often called “Snail” in the collector community). Medium, extra-flexible nib. Very rare! Indicia beautifully engraved “LN” in script. Deep, crisp cap imprint. Near mint+ (could be new-old-stock).

A Page of Rare Vintage Crocker Pens

131
1905 Crocker #3 Blow-fill in Red Mottled Hard Rubber (very rare). Unusual filling mechanism. The earliest model of the Crocker Blow-fill, with “Patent Pending” as part of the barrel imprint. Yes, the user put the pen into his mouth and blew through a hole on the side of the barrel, not far from the bottom to depress the bladder (shortly after introduction the “blow hole” was moved to the actual bottom of the barrel). Then, with the nib in the ink bottle, the user released the pneumatic pressure and the ink was drawn into the bladder. Eventually, Crocker supplied a rubber syringe (bulb) which fit over the end of the pen to replace the (unsanitary) use of the mouth. When Seth Chilton Crocker left the Crocker Pen Company (owned by his father) and started the Chilton Pen Company (his own company), the blow-filler mechanism was replaced by another pneumatic filling mechanism using a sliding barrel with a hole in the end which the user covered with his or her finger – a big improvement! This is a very early “Cone Cap” example, without cap threads. Extra-fine “Crocker Boston” nib, with no number to designate the size. A few very small flakes out of the cap lip, otherwise near mint+.
$400

132
1906 Crocker #2 Blow-fill in Red Mottled Hard Rubber (very rare). The “Blow Hole” is now on the very bottom of the barrel. This is a very early “Cone Cap” example, without cap threads. Fine, triple-flexible “Crocker Boston 2” nib. Near mint+. Date approximate.

1935 Omas/Pagliero Plevonia BF in Green Laminated (Parker Vacumatic look-a-like), set off with Black ends. Almost certainly made by Omas for Pagliero – see, for example, Omas item #34 above for an almost identical pen, inside and out. Also, Pagliero produced mid-range pens in their factory, and this is clearly a very high end pen. This can also explain the Omas Extra nib (medium/fine, extra-flexible) found in the pen.

1930 Conklin Endura Symetrik Oversize LF in Black & Bronze. In 1930 Conklin transitioned from the flat-top Endura to the streamlined, Endura Symetrik, as other pen manufacturers re-designing as well. I included the two pens immediately above so you could see the transition from one cap band to two cap bands to the new streamlined shape. The Endura Symetrik was made in three sizes (this being the largest) and was very short lived as it soon transitioned to the piston-filled Nozac. Examples of the Endure Symetrik are rare today. GFT.

Pollack called the pen the “John Hancock,” one of the first cartridge pens ever marketed. The patent was actually awarded about 8 years later. GFT. Jade band at the seam where the blind cap unscrews for access to the cartridge (later production used a red band). Extra-smooth, extra-fine, flexible nib. Near mint+.
