Description

Details

Type  dip pen holder with a mechanical pencil option.

Product Name  Unknown

Manufacturer and Year  Unknown, it has no imprints but it is probably from the late 1800s.

Length  Just over 4" with neither tip extended. Just over 5" with the pencil tip out or with a nib installed.

Filling System  The dip pen component has no filling system. The mechanical pencil component takes what we believe to be 1.0mm leads. The 1.1mm leads are too thick and the 0.9mm leads are too narrow. (The tip could be pinched just slightly to make 0.9mm leads work, but we did not do so.) The leads extend and retract by gripping the base of the cone area and turning the whole pen. You access the dip pen component by sliding the band closer to the opening towards the opening and the pencil component by sliding the middle band towards the opening. Leads can be stored beneath the cap.

Color  Black painted metal with gold filled trim. It has three ridged areas and an ornate cap end. The trim is gold filled.

Nib  Based off the width of the holder, it should take most dip pen nibs. An Esterbrook 182 Lady Falcon nib is installed. Half of its base is cut off. If the nib you want to use is too thin to stay in the holder you can pinch the metal a little to hold it in place. Don't pinch it too much or future nibs might not easily slide in.

Condition  Excellent condition. The trim looks great with some wear on the area near the opening and both plating wear and a dent in the band that controls the nib holder. The black material looks good and is slightly darker beneath the areas where the bands sit when neither tip is extended. The bands slide very easily and can slide back into the barrel with minimal pressure on the extended tip. The angle matters though so a relatively light hand prevents any problems.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.) Of course, if it's a defect, we'll refund 100%.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
