Vintage Pen – Crocker Pneumatic Filler
This 1910 Crocker has an unusual filling system! It is a #3 pneumatic-filler in smooth BHR. The filling mechanism was designed for the user to put the bottom of the barrel into their mouth and blow so the air pressure collapsed the bladder. In later years they provided a rubber syringe to use instead of your mouth. Founded 1902 in Boston, made blow-fillers and a locking lever-filled located at the end of the barrel (now commonly called the “Hatchet-filler). The barrel with two gold-filled bands. Signed Crocker extra-fine, flexible nib. New-old-stock. Mint. Item #62 in Catalog #84.
