Extraordinary Vintage Pens

1

1924 La Plume d’Or Bibax capillary-fill Taper/Cone Cap in Red Mottled Hard Rubber. Extremely rare. Information found in “Une Affaire de Stylos” Quintette (1990) [in French language only]. Barrel imprint “Le Bibax B.S.G.D.G. Unis France.” “B.S.G.D.G.” is the abbreviation for “Breveté Sans Garantie du Gouvernement” which means “Patented without State Guarantee.” While the barrel is a hollow hard rubber tube, it is NOT an eyedropper-fill. There are four long slots in the back of the feed. The filling design is to put the pen, nib down, into an ink supply, and the barrel fills through the principle of liquid settling to its own level. The ink in the barrel now acts as the ink reserve. Very rare and very collectible! Correct nib (medium) signed “D & D Paris 18 cts 3.” “D & D” stands for “Demely & Degan,” the founders of La Plume D’Or. New-old-stock. Mint in original box (one end flap missing from box cover). Close-up photo in box.
$650

4
1912 Montblanc sub-brand #1 LF in Red Mottled Hard Rubber. Excruciatingly rare, both in size, color and filling system (Montblanc made very few lever-fill pens). One of the most famous and desirable of the Montblanc sub-brands, manufactured from 1912 through around 1928. These were produced with both a “Warranted” nib with the pen/nib size in a diamond, and with a recognizable Montblanc nib, signed “14 Carat” and having the pen/nib size within the Montblanc logo. This example has the latter, more desirable nib (fine). No signs of use. Very crisp barrel imprint. Some wear to the nickel plating on the lever, otherwise near mint.
$1600

1946 Montblanc 136 Meisterstuck PIF in Black. Rare model with long Visualated window, still with perfect pinstriping. What’s even rarer is the medium, extra-flexible nib! A double whammy! GFT. Near mint+ (could be new-old-stock).
$1500

$4300

7
1920 Montegrappa #4 Elmo Safety eyedropper-fill in Red Hard Rubber (excruciatingly rare!). Elmo is a Montegrappa subbrand. The name came from one of the founders of Montegrappa whose name was “Helm,” pronounced “Elm.” Signed “Elmo 14K 4″ nib (fine, extra-flexible). A small mark or two in the barrel knurling. The barrel slightly darker where protected by the cap. A small dark band near the top of the cap where a label must have been at one time. Otherwise near mint+ with perfect deep barrel imprint and absolutely no signs of ink. In original box.

$700

9
1910 Parker Model 47 Eyedropper-fill. One of the most beautiful of the early Parker pens. Nicknamed the “Pregnant Parker” because of the bulbous design of the alternating pearl slabs (which are soaked until soft so they can be so shaped). Wonderful yellow, green and red iridescence of the pearl. Gold-filled high relief repousse floral cap and barrel bands. Indicia engraved in beautiful Script lettering “G.E.B.” Medium/fine, extra-flexible nib. Has been filled, perhaps 100 years ago or more. Near mint+.

[???] Fall 1989 [???] 15 August 1993 D.J. Kennedy.” “[???]” means I can’t make out the engraved words. The insert is also engraved “Collection of Bevy Jaegers (and) C.M. Bozorth.” Uses an #8 size Moore Monarch nib/feed and section, the section covered in sterling silver. Lapis stone in both the cap top and the barrel bottom. Purple cabochon mounted just above the clip. The pen was sent as a gift to George Bush who declined acceptance and returned it to the maker. A very early (and very rare) D.J.K. pen, famed artist and Sculptor, who also produced pens by private order and for Nieman Marcus. Fine nib. Also included are the matching ink bottle. A repousse swan adorns the bottle cap. A 7/8″ D.J. Kennedy made Sterling Silver band surriunds the bottle, with heavy “Vine repousse work. The indicia is engraved “Dr. O’s Miracle Ink for Bush Pen 9 February 1994.” Still more! Included is the wooden form used by D.J. Kennedy for the rough shaping of the sterling silver cap and barrel. Finally, included is the hand carved form fitted wooden presentation box made by D.J.K. for the pen! The ca. 7″ x 3″ x 1 3/4″ box is “hinged” with a free form piece of distressed rawhide leather. A unique opportunity to own a D. J. Kennedy ensemble, perhaps the only one of it’s kind ever to exist! Near mint+ Here’s a link to an article, “The art of DJ Kennedy”: http://artsyville.blogspot.com/2009/02/art-of-dj-kennedy.html.

Featured - Sheaffer WASP (plus a couple of other sub-brand pens)

During the Depression many pen companies introduced lower priced models so as to not detract or lower the prices of their existing models. For example, Parker introduced the Thrift Time, Conklin started the All American brand, Esterbrook introduced the Dollar Pen and Sheaffer introduced both WASP and VACUUM-FIL. UNIVER (circa 1930) and CRAIG (circa 1912), other Sheaffer sub-brands, were introduced earlier. CRAIG was Sheaffer’s son’s name, WASP stands for W.A. Sheaffer Pen, CLIPPER was named after the Pan American Airways China Clipper airplane, UNIVER was likely a shortening of an earlier sub-brand, UNIVERSITY (circa 1912, described as a coin-filler pen). To save money, many nibs were stainless steel, those which are gold (all the nibs below) are 10K rather than 14K.

1943 Wahl Eversharp Fifth Avenue LF $64 pen in Burgundy. This is a rare version, with “6$4″ factory imprinted on the 14K cap (more about this in a moment). Martin L. Strauss bought the shaky Wahl Co. in 1939. By the early 1940’s, with their sponsorship of the radio show Take it or Leave It,” both the phrase The $64 Question and the Eversharp Company were on the map. Strauss sold tens of millions of dollars of $64 model pen and pencil sets. It is believed that the few of these pens and sets which have solid gold caps factory imprinted “6$4” caps (like this example) were not sold but were awarded as prizes on the radio show, and are therefore extremely rare. Fine nib. Near mint+.
