Hi,

 

I bought this pen set in an antique store in England.  It is a ballpoint and fountain pen set.

 

The background is navy with a maroon paisley pattern.  The fountain pen is very slender with a small nib.

There is no brand indication on either pen and they came in a generic black box (I don't think it was original).  The nib simply says "iridium" and "W Germany".

 

I emailed Cross, but they said it is not one of theirs.

 

The fountain pen had an old cartridge in it, but I was able to clean it out and it still writes well.  Definitely a fine or extra-fine nib.  Since it uses standard international cartridges I don't think it is very old (also was only 15 pounds for the set).

 

I am hoping to find the brand so I can try to get a new nib unit for it.

 

I appreciate any information you can provide.

 

Thanks,

Monica

It has a look of Dupont about it, but I think that should be printed on the nib. 

Probably a generic brand or possibly Chinese but attractive nonetheless.

Yup, most likely a Chinese NoNami.

Thank you both for the feedback.  Any advise on replacing the nib unit?

I inked it and it does write well, so I guess it doesn't need replacing. I am just curious on how I would find a new one since the nib is integrated with the grip.

 

Have a great day,

Monica

The nib may just pull out and then you can try different sizes. The problem with some Chinese pens is the nibs can be very thin so you can damage the nib taking it out and nibs you buy from somewhere else might be too thick to fit. If it writes well I'd leave it in place and just enjoy using it.
