Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a "White Feather" self filling fountain pen on Ebay. I bid Sniped the pen & got it for $14. The pen arrived in Mint condition in its original case complete with filling instructions & a spare nib. Is there anyone who might know anything about the White Feather Pen company, & any possible pen models that my pen might be?

That old thread is not very helpful as it's a Golden Star pen in a White Feather box.

 

White Feather (technically White Quill) was a brand used by the Dandong Pen Factory in norther China; the firm ceased trading some time in the 1990s, if memory serves.

No, I am not going to list my pens here.

Finepoint87,

 

I am afraid the pictures are not as informative as can be; I cannot see the pen uncapped, and the barrel removed to show the innards, and the cap picture showing the model number not clear enough to see it; it would be better to type out the markings as well. Sorry for not able to be more helpful.

The Pen cap says "White Feather Model number 71-2. The Pen is operated by a "Self Filling" Capillary action mechanism. Thank you.

Certainly, Chinese-made. Soviet , did someone say ? I suggest that one of the intended markets might be Europe or USA, from the English printing. Please learn how it works, and maintain it well. What a nice piece for one's collection ! Thanks.

White Feather 71-2, one of the three white feather gold nib self-filling fountain pen(1968-1978).(like 71, it also provides gold plated iridium point nib version)

71-2 have at least more than 4 kind of aluminum caps for example, panda, sail, lattice(yours), and a kind of 616-like.

first generation:71(jumbo),71-2,72(71-2≠72,72 is only iridium point nib)

second generation:71-3(=73),71-4(=74),78,79,76(71-2/72-like nib, while other second generation pens are hooded nib)

third generation:136 14k nib(71-2/72 like nib, 71-2/72/76 size)

the way of it filling is similar to waterman x-pen.

The box seems to be the version before 1975.

Dandong Fountain Pen Factory bankrupted in about 2004, in 1990s it was the third fountain pen factory in China.

The first chinese cartridge fountain pen is white feather 801 in mid 1970s.

white feather 610's second generation nib provided by CAS may be similar to Octanium.

Zombie thread resurrection! (sorry)

 

I have what appears to be a first gen. 71 (looks like a stainless cap, not aluminum) inbound from Japan, but it doesn't seem to have the ink cell in it anymore...

 

Does the feed lend its self to this pen being used as an eyedropper? I'm assuming that the barrel seals well enough to work that way, since there is no evidence of any sophisticated seals on the ink cell...

 

TIA to all who may provide insight on this!

David-

 

So many restoration projects...

I'm glad I found this thread.  I recently obtained a White Feather 71-2 with a black barrel from a Serbian seller.  The capillary insert appears to be unused, as does the entire pen.  It also came in the same White Feather wooden box as shown above by Finepoint87.  I haven't used it yet.  I purchased it, along with a Waterman X-Pen (from another seller), to add to my extensive capillary-fill fountain pen collection, which other than the White Feather and the X-Pen, is made up entirely of many capillary-fill Parker 61 FPs.  I hope at some point to ink up the 71-2 and the X-Pen.
