    As I continue to refine my collection it's time to say goodbye to this superb Parker Duofold Jr Streamline in Red Permanite. It is an English Duofold, made in Newhaven (see the N on the nib), with a hint of wear to the cap bands and a touch on the ball-end of the clip. Aside from that it is in fine cosmetic condition in terms of finial and body colour, with no damage whatsoever. The button filling mechanism functions correctly and the 14ct nib writes with a fine line, which is crisp and a little stubby. £120(pounds sterling) plus the cost of postage. I'm open to offers, please don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have and please contact me to discuss shipping as rates will differ and there will be some destination exclusions unfortunately. Many thanks for you interest!

    Identifying An Early Parker

    Hi all, I picked up an old Parker button filler at a flea market recently and I can't figure out what it is. https://parkerpens.net/luckycurve.html#jackknife This makes me think its a Jack Knife, but I really have no idea. Can anyone give me any background info? In case you can't see the (ridiculously huge, sorry) photos, here are a few details: It has a 2 imprinted on the blind cap. Just 2, nothing else.The nib says PARKER PEN MADE IN USA with the number 6.It has a lucky curve imprint on the barrel with a long string of numbers I can't make sense of. It's longer and slimmer than a Duofold
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Hello everyone at the fountain pen network. Today as always I come to ask your advice and share your wisdom and opinions to be able to solve several doubts that I have in my head. I love both modern and vintage fountain pens from the bottom of my soul, most of my feathers are modern and I only have one vintage that is my prized "51" parker. And I've decided that it's time to get another vintage pen but an older one and I've always had the desire to get a vintage fountain pen of ebonite with flexible nib is a great historical piece that I wish to own in my little collection. Now I have t

    Ka-Bu-Co- 16B / Osmia 226

    In the mail and thought I'd share some pictures . Ka-Bu- Co according to the seller is the German Office Supply Company Kaut - Bullinger & Co and this pen is made by Osmia . It is the same as an Osmia 226 so is their large pen . The clip is a very nice but uncorrect replacement so I will be on the lookout for a correct one . #6 Broad flexible nib . Here are a few of the sellers pictures . Eddie PS: Forum wont let me post the other two pictures for some reason . I tried resizing by 50 % but it still won't accept them .

    Ebonite & Celluloid Missing Nib

    Dear fountain pen people, First time post, lifetime fountain pen writer. I have recently inherited a few fountain pens from my grandmother. One is a mint condition parker 45 with her name engraved, a nice memory to own. The other two pens are a little more complex to describe, they are I’m guessing of a 1940’s design. Pictures below. One is an ebonite button filler with a missing pressure bar inscribed 'Luxor'. The other is a blue celluloid candy stripe lever filler, again with my grandmothers name engraved and the word 'Alfa'. Both pens are missing sac’s and more importantly, miss
  10. I recently purchased a Caws vintage button filler from Yesteryear's Fountain Pens on eBay (no affiliation). It was described as from the 1930's, and restored. I thought I'd ink it up and take it for a spin. First impressions (1-10): 7. The pen is tiny. I knew this from the sale description, but its hard to wrap your head around such a dainty pen. But the marbled jade green is very striking. It's nice looking tiny pen, with a tiny gold nib, in great condition. Appearance and Design (1-10): 8. Getting over the size, this is a standard designed pen, with a very nice color and well proportioned.

    Working A Button Filler?

    Wondering what's the right way to fill a button filler, as in how many times do I push the button and how fast or slow? Received a beautiful old Thrift Time button filler; the button springs freely and I can hear the pressure bar moving when I push the button but I didn't want to force the pen open to inspect the sac so I don't know its condition. So I thought I would try filling the pen with plain water to test it. When I dipped the nib into the cup of water and pushed the button a couple of times, much to my surprise green ink came out (I had run the dry nib over my fingertip and on paper

    My Fosfor Pens

    Mr Manoj Deshmukh is an artist who sculpts incredible pens. The acrylic resins he sculpted for me were cast to my request. His pens are large pens with beautiful asthetics and balance. The nibs and filling systems are as desired by you as he offers a very large amount of customisation. I bought three pens from him. All pens have Schmidt B or M nibs. lava and Tikona are Cartridge -Converter fillers. The first was black, red, yellow and gold resin which resembles a lava flow hence the name Lava... The second was Tikona (triangular in Hindi) in blue acrylic.. And the latest is this green and gold

    Parker Duofold Jr. Button Filler.

    Hello, I would like to purchase Parker button filler Duofold jr. What should be its reasonable price range for a daily user? I am perplexed with so many different types like UK< USA, Canada. Thank you.
  14. I've recently become custodian of this blue plastic(?) 10-sided button filler, and thought I'd run it past the forum on the off-chance that anyone knew anything about it. It's clearly of lower quality - there are voids in the surface of the barrel where the white has not mixed in sufficiently with the blue, for instance, and the pressure bar is one micron away from being tin foil - but it has a certain charm. 134mm capped 121mm uncapped 156mm posted 11.5mm barrel diameter (flat to flat) Translucent yellow button and ink window, the latter marked "4". (Mould number, I assume?)
  15. Hi. I got this National Controllor button filler pen of an auction, but the filler leaks a little around the button. Does anyone know how to fix this? It is a really nice pen with a nice flexy degussa 14k nib. /Pether
  16. Hello! I am hoping you good folks can fill me in on the history (or lack thereof) concerning this recent purchase. I am aware that the Osmiroid 35 nib was often used as a quick replacement on pens, but I am more interested in the body of this pen. I have been unable to find any reference to what appears to be a rubber body (?)....let alone a button filler. Any thoughts? Was this cute little thing someone's Frankenpen?

    Need Help For A Parker 51

    I have a vintage Parker 51 that is button filled (there is no sac, just a little tube that the ink rides up when you press the button repeatedly under the blind cap) and it has decided to act up all of a sudden. This pen has never caused me any issues and has always been a somewhat dry writer. Yesterday I inked it up and the ink ran straight out through the nib - literally ran out of it. I checked under the screw off grip to see if the nib housing had any cracks but there are none. The nib housing is a reasonably tight fit and no ink comes out at the seam. The ink is flowing out from the nib.

    Orium Major No. 100

    Here's a review of a vintage Orium Major no.100, by the Wyvern Pen Company. This is a pen I know next to nothing about. http://i773.photobucket.com/albums/yy19/flounder2009/Orium%20Major%20100/OriumMajor100withspecs.jpg Lol - is anyone still reading? I bought the Orium for three reasons; the attractive celluloid, the Greek key cap band, and what *appeared* to be the original nib. The first two were as they appeared in the photos. The celluloid is like some sort of alien camouflage from a more vibrant world. The Greek key cap band is my first, and its severity contrasts wonderfully aga
  19. I came across a fine little Parker gf button filler (84mm long) that is missing its pressure bar. Is there a source for a non-standard size, say 38mm long, or is my only alternative to cut down a 66mm one? Thanks, Jack
  20. Hello again, Everyone! Newbie here again who went out and spent a little money today (and this emoticon would represent my wife: ). This is a button filler stamped /engraved "Webster Chicago" then there's an empty diamond shape, then it reads "Pen - - ILL". The weird part is the stamping/engraving on the underside of the barrel. It appears to have been done at the factory, in the same style, and depth of the other stamping/engraving, only in a larger font. It reads "LILLIE TROJCAK" That is possibly a name (according to "The Google"), and it has me stumped as to why it would be on a pen
  21. I purchased a NOS pen from eBay. The pen has been fitted with a new sac. It is a button filler The pen initially writes quite wet. However, during extended writing (with no pauses to let the ink dry in the nib) it grows progressively drier until it will eventually not write at all. To get it going again I need to shake the pen, or store it nib down for a while. I have already flushed the pen to no avail. I am guessing it isn't a problem with the nib and feed fit, or the tines, as the pen writes very wet and readily at first. The only explanation I can think of is that there is something prev
  22. Hallo all Dana pens in Tel Aviv has a sale every December. I was there today. I found a beautiful NOS Bexley button filler and bought it immediately. I found a picture of it at: http://www.parkvillepen.com/bexleycollection.html Its an orange cable twist dating back to 1994 and is no. 274 of a limited edition of 1000 with a 14k two tone nib. Unfortunately it came without a box, but you can't have everything. Looking forward to using it Chaim
  23. Dear All, This pen was in a recent auction lot. I don't know which model number should be attached to it or anything very much about it. I'm hoping that those who have far greater experience than I do can provide me with more information. As far as I can tell, the nib is damaged beyond repair and I don't know whether to junk the pen or consider a repair. All info gratefully received! Many thanks in anticipation, S The pen measures 41/4 " or 11 cm capped. It is gold-filled. The top of the clip is marked 'PAT SER 5-16' followed by the Parker name. The only other marking/imprint i
  24. Hello everyone! I am somehow stuck in the disassembly of a Salz "Pan Senior" button filler. I am uncertain as to how the nib unit is sitting in the pen section. Is it friction fit or srewed in? Would anyone know? The normal slight hammer bangs on the knock out block did not do the trick as they would normally. Trying to unscrew the nib unit like in a Pelikan did not either, nor did some heat applied. To know for sure which way to go would really make things easier. (I have been very careful with both, heat and also with soaking, because I do not know what material the section is made of.)

    Mystery Stratford Pen

    I recently visited an antique shop, and in one display case I found a couple of old fountain pens. I picked up this Stratford Button Filler for a bargain, $5!!! I have cleaned it up, and was able to remove the nib and feed. But the button is jammed. It moves down less than a 1/16 of an inch, and can turn about 5o. Overall the pen is 4 1/2" uncapped, and 4 3/4" capped. http://i.imgur.com/mpjLIFJ.jpg I would like to know if anyone has any knowledge of how I would go about repairing this pen so it can properly function again. Here are some details about the pen: Cap; The cap has a b
