Description

Details

Type  Vintage fountain pen and mechanical pencil set.

Product Name  Esterbrook Pastels, First Generation (the jewels are black)

Manufacturer and Year  Esterbrook, USA - 1954-57

Length  Pen is 4-3/8", pencil is 4-1/2".

Filling System  The pen is a lever filler, which we have restored with a new sac. It's working great. The pencil takes 0.9mm (or "thin") leads, which it extends via the cap-actuated mechanism, just like most modern mechanical pencils (press the cap down to extend). We'll include a small packet of leads.

Color  Lilac/light purple with chrome trim and black end jewels.

Nib  #9556 fine writing nib. It's in great condition, fairly smooth, with nice tipping. 

Condition  Excellent + condition. Light handwear and microscratching, but no major scratches. No staining on the cap or barrel, or barrel threads. The trim looks really good, no brassing or serious wear. The jewels are perfect. No cracks or chips, dings or dents, or personalization. The imprint is slightly worn but very visible. Fully restored and working well.

The Purse/Pastel pens and pencils were made with a more fragile plastic than other Esterbrook pens, and it's common to find cracks in the cap lips, but there are none here. Because of this, we suggest that you do not post this pen, or use extreme caution in doing so.

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.
