Huge Vintage Salesman's Sample Fountain Pen BIG!!
- Source: eBay
's one old pen every serious pen collector should include in their collection. I have never seen one this BIG! I am sure it must be a salesman's sample. Being a piston filler and by the style I would guess age at around 1930s or 40s. It is 6 1/4" long capped, 7" posted and the cap is an incredible 1 inch in diameter! The only marking I can see is New Clip on the clip. The nib is marked Warranted Iridium. The pen looks unused but I am sure it never was intended for use. It appears to be fully functional with the addition of a piston washer. Condition is very good. No cracks or chips, just minor shelf wear. Clip and cap band are excellent. Unknown if metal parts are gold plated.

My background in making injection molds allows me to apply appropriate skills to the process. I have made repairs on and sold hundreds of pens. All of my customers have been more than satisfied. I have found through hard experience that my repairs are equal or superior to any of the so-called "professional" pen restorers who advertise on the Internet.
