    Piave, 1930's 2Nd Tier Pen

    I just got this handsome pleasant Italian celluloid pen from Rick Propas aka The PENguin. He couldn't find any information on it and of course neither could I. But it is an interesting pen. Rick placed it somewhere in the 1930's, a second-tier pen of what appears to be a very obscure make. It's a lever fill, celluloid. The photos don't really capture the color very well. It's green on black, faceted. The nib is a replacement Montegrappa, an example of a very flexible but not particularly soft nib. You need to press to get the flex, but there is a whole lot of it. Without pressure it is a fine.

    1930S Uk Red Ink

    Hello, I'm trying to find a suitable alternative to this red ink. The paper is an off-white - it's slightly darker than cream. The colour rendition of my phone camera is pretty good, and what I see on a calibrated monitor is a good representation of these two samples I have in front of me. The manuscript dates from the early 1930s, and was written by someone in the UK, thus it would've been a UK-sourced ink. As you can see, it has a peach hue to it, though it feathers to a magenta where it's been exposed to damp. It looks quite a bright ink, and a little unsaturated. I don't generally lo
  3. Hi, last week a stunning Swan #2 tuned up nib arrived on a Swan L212/60 (late 1930s). It has a double pointed tipping: downside a F with good flex and on the top a real needlepoint! The L212 isn't restored yet, so I took a 6260 for a writing sample on A5 paper with 5mm squares: Some details of the nib and tipping: I haven't seen such a nib before, it seems to be a lucky find... Best Jens
  4. I currently have a 1930s Osmia 222 button filler on my work desk which needs a new sac. The barrel is celluloid and the section seems to be hard rubber. It's a rare pen and I need to be extra careful. What I don't know is whether the section is screwed in or only friction fit. Does anyone here have experience with button fillers from Osmia? Any info is highly appreciated.
  5. I recently acquired a beautiful little safety filler with 18 k gold overlay made by "The King" in Turino. The nib's imprint reads "RADIUS / SUPERIOR / 585". I did some research and found indications that they had ties with OMAS in Bologna but there are contradicting statements about what these relations were. I'm sure there are some experts on board here to enlighten me what these relations really were. And most curiously, I've seen a 1930s OMAS pen with a RADIUS nib recently, which puzzled me even more. Any ideas or info?

    Conway Stewart No.489

    The pen that I'll be reviewing (or discussing) today is: "The Universal Pen Conway Stewart London No.489" I have had this pen for a bit over a month now, have used it everyday, and have found it to be a reliable writer. I managed to pick this pen up after doing some antique shop hunting, and managed to get it for only $23AUD. On that note, I think it is actually much better to go vintage pen hunting in person rather than online. It's more fun that way, not knowing what you'll find, and you probably end up with a nicer price, provided you're willing to do some relatively easy restoration work.
  7. A while back I bought a pretty German button filler for a song and by now I restored it completely. Material seems to be a "red and pearl swirl" celluloid well-known in the 1930s. The imprint reads JUWEL Carl Klipperl Frankfurt a/M I could not find any info on this pen. But there was an early German manufacturer, first called Anglo-Amer and later International from the 1920s on which produced a pen with a model name "Juwel". That's the closest I can get. The construction points to the 1930s. Button fillers were rather uncommon in Germany after the piston filler was introduced in 1929.

    1930's Pilot N30 Fountain Pen?

    Hi Forum Folke, First off, apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum. I stumbled across this oldie at a yard sale. I wasn't expecting much based on it's looks, but I'll at least examine pretty much any fountain pen I find... you just never know, y'know? It's seen its share of use, and obviously has been banging around for quite some time, but there's no real damage, just age wear. the clip is straight and holds firm, there's no chew marks or any heavy gouges anywhere, no cracks or heavy scratching or distortions... the worst problem it had was that the gold-plating had all but disa
  9. I think this is a very rare find. Due to the looks and construction of the pen I dated it around 1930, but I could not find any information about these pens on the net, so maybe somebody can help out here. Appearance and size: 10/10 As you can see this is a midsize pen, comfortable to hold and by far different than the mostly bland today's Pilots. It was made I think for export since it had english letters on it. The cellulloid? is quite stunning, one of the most beautiful pens I have ever seen. Also it is in a terrific shape, doesn't seem to have any discoloration, only maybe some tiny bras
  10. I am delighted to have acquired this rather unusual Leverless. Of course I have (and have had) 1930s Leverless Swans with No 3 nibs, but I have never seen a rolled gold one. Note also how the name is stamped - in the style of the New York models. Rgds Cob
