Fountain Pen Restoration

Christmas 2008

Happy Holidays to all of you.  Over the past 13 months I have enjoyed writing these weekly (or so I try) entries.  I have especially enjoyed receiving emails from you with ideas, questions, and kind comments.  I hope I have provoked some interest in vintage fountain pens and in restoring them.   It is not a mysterious science, and as many of you have discovered this year, it is quite rewarding.  I hope to be able to add to these pages as we progress through another year.  I encourage you to reread some of the previous 63 articles published over the past 13 months if you get a chance.

As we are approaching Christmas Day, I thought I would repost pictures from my entry of Christmas Eve 2007.

The pen is a Sheaffer Holly Pen, produced in 1996.




From time to time, I mention that I run into other interesting related collectibles to fountain pens and occasionally post them.  A distant tie-in are vintage post cards which often carry interesting messages from the past on the back, often written with fountain pens.  Here is a sample from 1913, though the back has no message.


As in 1913, I wish all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and may you find happiness in the New Year.
