Description

Details

Type  dip pen holder with nib and in its original velvet pen box.

Product Name Model name unknown. The holder is marked "2" to indicate it took a #2 sized nib.

Manufacturer and Year USA -- Late 1800s or early 1900s. The holder is unmarked, but the nib was made by Aikin Lambert Co.

Length  6-3/16 with nib installed.

Filling System  Dip pen and holder with no ink reservoir. You dip the nib into ink and write. You'll need to use ink intended for dip pens, as regular fontain pen ink is a little too thin for a dip pen.

Color  Tapered (genuine) ivory handle with an end finial and with a patterned gold filled gripping portion.

Nib  Extra Fine Flexible Aikin Lambert Co. #2 gold nib (marked).  Extra fine hairlines to medium-broad at maximum flex. Good tipping material.  See the writing sample below. 

Condition  Very nice condition for this lovely, slender, vintage dip pen.  The ivory handle has a 1/4" fine line crack near the gold section with a small area of wear next to it, but if you hold the pen by the gold section when writing this crack will not get worse.  The dainty finial at the end of the holder is in perfect condition.  The patterned gold gripping area is beautiful.  The part that holds the nib has some plating wear along the edges and top rim.  The nib looks great. The pale green velvet box is worn but the latch works and it provides good housing for this delicate pen.  The imprint on the nib is clear.  No major scratches, dings, or dents.

Policies

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.
