Be the first to review this product

Osmia Progress 94 fountain pen. Osmia had a brief relationship with Parker and then in the 1930s started being absorbed by Faber-Castell. The 94 uses a pump filling system and has an extra fine flexible 14k nib. It is black and red marbled with a large translucent portion in the barrel. Superior working condition.

Description

Details

Type  Vintage piston fountain pen, working perfectly. 

Product Name  Osmia Progress 94

Manufacturer and Year  Osmia, Germany -- 1930s, guess based off of the clip.

Length  4-7/16".

Filling System   Pump filler. We have tested it and it's working well (it had been restored when we got it.). It looks like a vacuum filler but you actually fill it by pulling the end piece in and out of the barrel until it sucks in enough ink. It is more similar to an aerometric filling system than a vacuum filler.

Color  Red and black marbled with black end pieces and section. The middle of the barrel is a very dark red translucent portion with a grid pattern. Gold plated trim consisting of a clip and two narrow cap bands.

Nib  14k Flexible Extra Fine nib. An Osmia #4 nib is installed. It has great tipping and writes smoothly with respectable line variation. It is labeled EF near the piston knob. Please see the writing sample below. 

Condition  Superior condition. The pen has some handwear and light plating wear but the imprints are crisp and the barrel transparency is perfect.

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.
