We wrote about the scissor barrel configuration some time ago, but here we have an actual 1945 Colorado double-barreled, double nibbed piston-filling scissor barrel vintage pen. This model is in the Red Laminated finish, with red dot and white dots on the gripping sections so you can identify your inks. The scissor swivels to allow the user to fill each of the two reservoirs separately, so you can have two different inks. The pen is …

Extraordinary Pens – Soennecken Rheingold 915

This 1933 Soennecken Rheingold 915 is a button-filler in black, with gold-filled trim. This is a top-of-the-line model. The cap top has the “Starburst S” logo in it. The black sleeve surrounding the button on the bottom of the pen screws into the barrel so the user can depress the white button and fill the pen. When in the “down” position, the sleeve prevents the user from accidentally pushing the button. This specimen has a …

This 1939 Waterman 5116 Ink-Vue Demonstrator (rare) with Amber celluloid barrel and Black cap with gold-filled trim.

Extraordinary Pens – Waterman Art Nouveau

This 1910 Waterman (4)12 Black Hard Rubber fountain pen has a signed “Sterling” overlay in the Art Nouveau pattern. These rare, early, electroformed silver overlay Watermans, with their recessed barrel overlays, have only before been found signed “Fine Silver” or “.999 Fine Silver,” not signed “Sterling.” I thought it may be an error, but my research clearly shows that the electroforming process can be used with both Fine Silver and Sterling Silver. Right now, this is …

Pelikan Souverän M1000

The beautiful, large Pelikan Souverän M1000 piston-filling fountain pen – the flagship of the Souverän series. The 18KT gold nib is a fine, but because it is such a large nib and a German-made nib, you can expect the fine to run on the broader side. This pen is new-old-stock, and is mint in its original box (box is incorrectly labeled as Green). Item #111 in Catalog #77

Waterman 42 ½ Continental Safety Ring-Top

This 1917 Waterman 42 ½ Continental Safety ring-top vintage pen is an eyedropper-filler (easy to clean!) with an 18KT gold-filled Diamond pattern on a pinstriped background. It’s a gorgeous pen. There are two small dings in the barrel, with a discounted price to reflect this, but otherwise in near mint condition, with a form-fitted box and papers. Aside from the beautiful pen itself, the pen has an extra-fine, extra-flexible nib. Waterman made fantastic flexible nibs, so …
