Hello o/
I am new here and I just wanted to ask... Does anyone know anything about these two pens?
I am having a hard time trying to identify them. My father bought them when he was living in California back in the early 80's but he can't recall anything besides that.
Any information will be huge o/

They are not Esterbrook. Probably a Morriset.

Those look like Morrisets. @FarmBoy already linked to one of my posts about them. I have a number of the ink wells in addition to the pens. 

 

They're not fountain pens. They are essentially dip pens with a fountain pen type nib and feed. This allows them to write for longer than a normal dip pen. The ink wells that went with them came in lots of colors and were often embossed for companies. 

 

They work quite well for testing out new inks. Just make sure you flush out the feed thoroughly and drying the pen before trying them in different inks. A paper towel held up to the nib and feed until nothing else comes out will get out enough of the water to try another dip.
