Pen Id Help

Recommended Posts

I would appreciate any help on pen identification.

The green one on the left was our grandmother or great grandmothers. Nib says Warranted H Chrome Point USA, has a screw on cap. I am figuring it is beyond restoration, any opinions? Sorry for not a great picture, I just was not sure how to make it better. I know now I should have it nib side up.

The red one we bought at a flea market. I don't think it is worth much but it is different than a lot I have seen. An large S on the clip, a small, slender pen. Nib says 14Kt gold plate. Heart shaped breather hole, leer fill.

Item on the right is just a part that came in a bag of miscellany.

Thanks.

Wow, can someone tell me what I did wrong here to get no replies so far? What rule I broke or who I made mad or something? What protocol I did not follow?

Grace and peace to you

I'm sorry that I cannot identify your pens but hopefully someone will be by who can give you some guidance. Patience is a virtue. Better pictures would certainly be helpful.

You surely didn't brake a rule or protocol

I expect the reason why you don't get response is caused by the fact that both pens are so called " third tier" pens.

Not the first "top" tier such as Parker , Sheaffer and Waterman , even not second tier.

During the fountain pen "golden era" there were probably 50 companies making fountain pens in the US.

Smaller companies did not provide clear markings on their pens and nibs.

So it will probably remain very difficult to determine the brands…..

The first one looks a syringe filler, given the long blind cap, needed to house the extended syringe rod.

The second one is made from beautiful celluloid, very nice material !

i have had one of the first pen, i dont think its a syringe filler. i did not get to play with it much as the pen quickly crazed and broke but the button could not be pulled up. it had a really nice writing steel nib but i was not able to separate the section from the body to remove the nib or figure out exactly how it worked.

I agree they appear to be third tier pens and parts. Many companies produced similar pens. A good number were unmarked expect for the nib as yours are. The first pen may be too fragile to get back in working condition. It should be saved as a piece of family history. The second pen might be salvageable but requires at the least a new sac, possibly a spring as well. The kit to resac a pen like this is not terribly expensive. It looks like the start of a collection to me.

The one on the right is what's left of a J. Harris Flattop, like this one:

You will not likely find parts for it; but if you are feeling particularly altruistic, I can PM you the name of another FPN member who owns this one now, I'm sure he wouldn't mind having a spare barrel.

I would be good with sending the part. I have no use for it and someone might need it sometime. Send me the info and I'd be glad to send it.

thanks
