Howdy from the high desert.
I am a returning fountain pen user with a couple of nice pens and lots of questions.
I actually began with a pen and inkwell in 2nd grade at St. Rose of Lima in Chula Vista, CA.
Before the end of the 1st semester we were using Schaeffer cartridge fountain pens. I used
one all through Junior High School and High School in the '60s.
I now have 4 fountain pens, a wooden pen of unknown provenance, a sterling silver Parker, a titanium
Cross, and a Libelle - probably some kind of translucent green plastic.
I use cartridges in all but the Libelle. Because I have no idea what kind of cartridges might work with it. It was a gift from my now deceased mother and came from her collection with no instructions or accouterments. The Libelle is a fairly fat-bodies pen with a screw on cap. It has a screw-in/out reservoir, which I presume may be removed like the other pens. It is my favorite writing instrument, so I have used about 1/2 bottle of ink in the past month and gotten a fair amount on my fingers, especially as the bottle empties.
I have been unable to find any information on the pen online (maintenance/operating instructions etc.)
Can anyone tell me if the refillable reservoir is replaceable with cartridges?
Perhaps, suggest what type of cartridge might fit in the Libelle pen?
Is there any particular method to be used in removing the reservoir?
- I really don't want to do any damage to the instrument! I'd rather continue with the permanently stained digits.
