Type  Piston filling fountain pen - NON-WORKING cutaway demonstrator.

Product Name  Unknown, there's a large area of the barrel cut-away that might have originally shown the model name.

Manufacturer and Year  Kaweco, Germany - 1930s is our est guess

Length  5-1/4 inches.

Filling System  Button filling system. 

Color  Black celluloid or some other kind of plastic. Top part of cap seems to be hard rubber. Gold plated trim.

Nib  Broad italic nib, gold plated.  Very strange nib with no tipping material, possibly intended for these non-functioning demonstrators.

Condition  Excellent condition. No cracks or chips, dings, or dents. The imprints are very clear and filled in with a green that matches the barrel. 

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A WORKING PEN. Nearly every part of this pen has a portion removed to show the details of the inner workings. It will not hold ink, because there is a cut-out in the section. It does show intimately all of the inner workings of a vintage fountain pen and makes a great teaching tool or conversation piece.

We do not recommend taking this pen apart, as it is difficult to reassemble. We can't give you a refund if the pen has been tampered with.

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.
