Sterling Fountain Pen Co. Fountain Pen - BHR, Flexible Extra Fine #4 Nib (Excellent +, Works Well)

Be the first to review this product

Basic black smooth hard rubber eyedropper fountain pen with two different company imprints. The barrel is stamped "Sterling Fountain Pen Co." for the company in Boston, and also is stamped, "Ihling Bros. & Everard, for the company in Kalamazoo. Since Ihling Bros. & Everard was a more general goods company, we think the pen was sold in one of their stores but was made by Sterling Fountain Pen Co. It has an extra fine flexible Sterling #4 nib. Excellent + condition.

Type  Vintage fountain pen.

Product Name  Unknown

Manufacturer and Year  Sterling Fountain Pen Co., USA -- 1900s or 1910s. Note that this pen has imprints for two different companies but we believe it was made by Sterling Fountain Pen Co. and not Ihling Bros. & Everard.

Filling System  Eyedropper filler. It has been cleaned and tested. We will include instructions and some silicone grease.

Color  Black hard rubber, BHR. No carved decorations or trim.

Nib  EXTRA FINE FLEXIBLE Sterling Fountain Pen Co. #4 gold nib. The tines are very soft and it causes the nib to be misaligned easily. We flexed the nib as much as were comfortable with for the writing sample below.

Condition  Excellent + condition. The three sets of imprints are clear. The material has lightened some with a gradient of darkness. There is some barrel wear from capping and posting.

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.
