Thanks for sharing your collection. That was enjoyable.

You asked about the English word for the the ink pot connection. You had it right. I would call it a threaded connection. The grooves are called threads, on both the glass bit and on the base.

Thanks, N2theBreach, I appreciate your kind words and the input on the proper wording of the inkwell description.
I looked it up in my dictionary, but I still wasn't completely sure, since my english dictionary is fairly old - and I didn't know if people use a more recent phrase or what.
So I just wrote it and thought that if people don't get the meaning or something, they'll either correct me - or ask. ;)
But it was just right, and I'm happy about that. :)
Thanks again. ;)

Alright, latest flea market finds - and a solution to something that had me confuzzled...namely the little glass inkwell. ;)

Well - here's the solution...*facedesk* *rofl*

Posted Image

And I've found out that the metal is pewter. So far, so good - but argh I felt *silly* when I realised that the "skirt" had been put on upside down! Bleargh! :D


Alright, silly mistakes aside, here's what I got today:

Posted Image

Glass/brass/soapstone inkwell set.


Posted Image

Posted Image

Steel or stained silver inkwell set, I'm not sure which.
But both glass inserts are there, and the set looks really neat.


Posted Image

A simple office pen rack, in serious need of some loving polishing.
It's going to be interesting how it'll look once I get around to polishing it and put my dip pens on it. ;)

Unknown pen. The cap has got the "Universal" film company logo on it.


Posted Image

Unknown pen. There's no text anywhere on the pen, except for a tiny "Rolled gold" on the edge of the cap, and some letters and numbers that I can't read due to old dirt and ink on the nib. Once cleaned, it'll be visible.


Posted Image

Liberty "kollegie-pen" - translation: dorm pen or college pen.

Unknown pen. Text on cap band: Inoxcrom - Spain.

...and finally something which I've needed badly when hunting for fp's at flea markets and thrift shops. ;)

Alright...I think I got a very very very nice bargain at the flea market today...as far as I've been able to find out, this is a german 1935 Mont Blanc 234½ with the 100 series hourglass clip, but since I'm no MB expert, please correct me if I'm wrong.
I got it cheaply, so it was a true bargain no matter what. ;)

Here's the photos:

The pen before cleaning.
It was a bit difficult to get it to suck up water at first when I cleaned it, but it got better, and when I rinsed it for the last time it held water nicely.
Which makes me think that the piston "seal" or whatever it's called, need a replacement.
I mean: I wouldn't wager a white shirt on it being able to hold ink properly. ;)

So that's my second ever MB fp, and I must admit that I'm totally and unashamedly chuffed. ;)
