Description

Details

Type  Vintage vacumatic filling fountain pen.

Product Name  Doric II, we are calling it a "II" because the first version came in different colors and used a different filling system

Manufacturer and Year  Wahl Eversharp, USA -- 1930s

Length  5"

Filling System  Vacumatic (piston) filler. This was called the "One shot" vacuum filling system by Eversharp and is modeled after the Sheaffer vac-fil system. We've restored the filling system in-house and it's working very well. We'll guarantee it for one year, though we expect it to last reliably for much longer.

Color  This pen is Jet Black, one of the Airliner Colors. The majority of the barrel acts as a viewing window with an amber spiral portion. The barrel winds up looking a lot like a peppermint stick. The trim is gold filled and includes a narrow band between the piston knob and the barrel and a 1/8" cap band with cut outs.

Nib  FLEXIBLE MEDIUM ITALIC 14k Eversharp nib. The nib unflexed writes like a medium cursive italic. The tines spread easily and far for additional line variation. In conjunction the pen offers full flex type line variation. See the writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent + condition. The color is nicely translucent and the viewing section is very clear. The pen has no major scratches and minimal plating wear. The piston knob has bite marks and the the barrel has some capping marks. The cap has a scratch on the imprint and to the left of the imprint. The piston knob turns well. The pen is working very well.

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 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.
