Vintage Eyedropper Fountain Pen. With a wonderful Repoussé Gold Filled overlay. Flex #4 Warranted 14K Gold Nib. Please enlarge all 12 photos & read all the text for detail. Beautiful Eyedropper fountain pen a full 6 & 9/16″ posted and 5 & 5/16″ capped, an antique Eyedropper Fountain Pen that you can use if you are familiar with early Eyedroppers that is! Very sturdy Hard rubber with a beautiful gold filled repoussé overlay as shown Unusual Overlay.. A Big Flower- the trim is quite bright, but it does show some patina upon close inspection, I would guess the overlay is gold filled, however I do not see see any obvious brassing, The pen has no maker marks except the nib markings, no cracks. There is a nice 3 letter engraving as shown in photo #9 , The cap is a tapper slip fit B. Cap, it caps & posts very well. The pen does not & never had a pocket clip originally. An overall very beautiful & presentable pen :. The nib is a nice semi flexy and very straight & clean Warranted #2 14 Karat (as marked) Gold- good remaining iridium tipping, fairly Easy flex, nice very fine line to approx 1.6 mm with medium to heavier pressure for very nice line variation as shown. I would stay at 1.4mm or below for nib preservation, a nice straight 14K gold nib. Nice on Rhodia paper, more feedback on cheaper paper, Like writing with a Victorian dip pen nib. This pen was tested by actually filling the pen with ink , the section threads are perfect, and the joint between the barrel & section is very tight. It is a leak free pen. I put a little silicone on the threads also, The feed channel & section have been cleaned and are very clear, with very good ink flow- you will get different results with different inks. The pen performed very well for me :. NOTE; Relatively primitive but, yet fun antique pen that you can use, Like these pens wrote originally, and especially when the pen is low on ink, the heat from your hands may occasionally cause an ink blob to occur, This did happen to me when I used the pen – keeping the pen full will help, & tipping the point up once every so often will help. Or keep a blotter around like they did in the old days. The Paper is from a Rhodia Dotpad No. 16, the dots are 5mm apart to help you gauge the line variation. The inks are Diamine Monaco Red, and Waterman Inspired (South Sea) Blue The writing sample was made by actually filling the pen with ink & writing with it, (though I did blob some ink it it after the photos were taken :-)… The writing sample will be included with the pen :.
