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, missing feeds and nibs.

I did a little measurement of the sections and I have to believe that both pens would have had a feed that is about 4mm in thickness. I know there are plentiful replacement nibs available, but as you will know, they are all starting at 5mm or ar a #5.

 

As it is now, I have two broken fountain pens that are, at best, a nice memory. However, I am a daily fountain pen user and I would much rather see these pens restored and added to my routine, maybe as a flex pen, a daily writer or even fill one up and use it in the office.

 

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
