Vintage Gold-Filled Repousse Eyedropper– Wet Noodle (See Price Here)

Not all vintage pens need to have a well-known maker to be fine pens. This is an excellent, unbranded eyedropper with intricate repousse exterior. This pen was likely made sometime between the 1890s and 1910s. It is very similar to an Aiken Lambert or John Hollad pen of the same era.  The pen is in near mint condition. It’s hard to believe that a hundred plus year old pen could look this nice. The black hard rubber is still jet black, shiny and smooth. There is no brassing on the pen. Indeed the only fault I can find is a small ding in the barrel where in area blanked for personalization (of which this pen has none.) And the Warranted 14kt. nib on this pen is superb. It’s a wet F (0.4mm) that is a very soft wet noodle. The tipping is a bit low but still there. This nib is a near paintbrush. It writes more like a very soft and smooth Medium normally due to the fact that it is hard to write normally without flexing it a little bit. It flexes up 2.2mm and is quite responsive. This is a superb vintage pen. See Price Here
