#1. circa 1931 Parker Duofold "Vest Pocket" set in Jade Green. This set has pocket clips and no rings on the tops. The pen has some obvious discoloration on the barrel. There is no brassing on the gold filled trim. the name "Esther" nicely engraved on the barrel of the pen and pencil. I have NOT restored the set. I have had it in my collection for about 10 years and just enjoyed it as it is. The pencil mechanism is working well. Capped the pen measures 3 3/8 inches or 8.7 cm.


Price $300.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

2. 1920's Marxton oversize flat top fountain pen in pale jade green. I have to say, this is the most beautiful jade colored celluloid pen I have ever seen. These were made by Eclipse. The pen is a bit larger in diameter than a flat top oversize Sheaffer's. There is a very slight bit of brassing on the bottom edge of the cap ring in a couple of places. The nib is a smooth writing Semi-Flexible Extra Fine 14K, with good ink flow. I would call it a "soft nib" with the amount of flex it has. Capped the pen measures 5 1/4 inches or 13.4 cm. The condition is Excellent.
Price $165.00 shipping included in the U.S. Foreign shipping see "Rules, Shipping, Etc." below.

Rules, Shipping, Etc.


The usual rules apply, the person sending the first e-mail on an item
~stating intent to purchase~ gets the item. I will give you 5 days to
decide if you like the pen or not. I prefer payment by PayPal but also
accept checks or money orders in USD. I can only accept payment by
PayPal from countries outside the U.S. I ship worldwide, so
international customers are always welcome.


Prices are post paid in the U.S., and will be shipped with a tracking
number and insurance. I normally ship inside the U.S. by U.S.
Postal Service Priority Mail. I also ship to other countries by Priority
Mail. I can also ship to other countries by Express International Mail,
if you request it, but it is costly.


Return Policy: I will always allow pens, or other items, to be
returned. If there is a problem I would prefer the chance to fix the problem
or replace the item, when and if possible. Otherwise a full refund
will be offered. If you find a problem and choose to send the item
(pen, mechanical pencil, etc.) to someone else to be corrected, I will
not be responsible for any other problems.


Happy penning!
