In the 1950s a new fountain pen named the CF (a contraction of ink cartridge filler) was introduced by the Waterman pen company. The CF fountain pen went on to be a best seller for Waterman, and was produced in a wide variety of materials and finished before being phased out of production in the early 1980s. These pens are now sought after by pen collectors the world over and many are still used daily. Here you can view a collectable gold plated vintage Waterman CF fountain pen and accompanying ballpoint pen brought in by a member of the public and purchased by us in the shop.

Vintage Parker Premier Pens

In 1983 Parker introduced the Parker Premier range of pens.  Rarely do we get any examples of these now vintage and collectable pens brought into the pen shop, but this Saturday we were delighted when the ballpoint and pencil above turned up for sale in the shop.  They are finished in 22crt plated fine barleycorn decoration and both the ballpoint and pencil are in mint condition and boxed.  The ballpoint is twist actuated and the pencil has a button and twist mechanism.  Both of these Parker Premier pens are now for sale on this Vintage Parker Pen webpage.
