Dear fellow forumites and pen-o-philes:


Recently, I have com in the possession of two vintage fountain pens, one of which was quickly identified as a Pelikan 120.


The other one however, is a mystery. (to me, at least)


I know the history of the pen, it was purchased by my father in the fifties of the previous century. Later, my brother used it for a while, put it away somewhere, and it got forgotten. It resurfaced, and now I have it.


There is no brand or model name anywhere on the pen, it is a black piston filler. The clip looks vaguely Pelikan-esque, the rest of the pen looks a bit Geha-esque.


See pictures, if anyone could identify this pen, that would make me happy! I have already looked in Mr. Lambrou's "Fountain Pens Of The World", but couldn't find this pen.








Kind regards,

Ah, Ha didn't know that.


I've got a couple ERO pens, if not they are twins, but a bit more colored....third tier....they work so that is good.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
