Description

Details

Type  Eyedropper fountain pen

Product Name Infant Pen, we're unsure if this is a formal name or just what people call the tiny sized Wirt pens

Manufacturer and Year  Paul E. Wirt, USA -- 1910s, you can find the patent for the feed online and it was filed in 1908 and approved in 1910. Though the barrel is not imprinted, the nib has the Wirt laurel wreath nib and feed.

Length  2-15/16"

Filling System  Eyedropper filler. We cleaned and tested it and it's working very well. We will send instructions and recommendations for usage as well as some silicone grease and an eyedropper.

Color  Black hard rubber with a 1/4" gold filled cap band. Both band and hard rubber are smooth.

Nib  Extra Fine Flexible #0 nib. It has a laurel and W prints on the face. The tines spread easily for strong line variation. The feed is a bit unusual but allows for very good flow. See the writing sample below.

Condition  Very Nice condition. The pen looks great but there is wear. The ring top hartdware the pen originally had is missing and the black hard rubber has lightened inconsistently. The end of the barrel and section have several bite marks. The cap has a few as well. The cap band is brassed on the edges and has an "S" print on it. No cracks.

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.
