Stock antique pen nibs are finished with a very fine factory oil coating to prevent rust. It is invisible to see and rarely can it be felt, but nonetheless, it is there. Before using any of these old nibs, you must remove the factory oil coating so that ink will adhere better. Place nibs in a pot of boiling water for about 30 seconds, remove and pat dry to prevent rust OR wipe each nib thoroughly with rubbing alcohol.

Keep your dip pens close at hand and well organized, too!

Antique Japanese Brushes - When we were at the San Francisco Pen Show a few months ago, we acquired a full box of antique Japanese Brushes that are very suitable for using for writing or drawing, if you prefer. They also can be used to make nice washes and swashes. Each one is printed  Made in Japan and we were told the Japanese lettering on each bamboo holder indicates they were probably made for the school market.  There is a small loop at the top of each Japanese Brush so you can hang it when not in use. Each brush measures about 8-9 inches long. None of the brushes appear to have ever been used. They're quite dry and judging from the dust that on the outside of the box, quite old!  Once you dip or run them under water, you can turn and smooth them gently into a perfect brush point. Dip in ink and they make magic!   No synthetics used for any of these brushes!  We do not know what type of bristles these are, many different ones are used in this style of brush, guessing after a little research that they are horse or goat hair.

P874 Hunt Dip Pen Nib Advertising Mailer $40

This is quite the elaborate piece mailed to solicit new dip pen nib customers. Die cut in the shape of a pen nib, it is a tri-fold with mailing info on one side, Hunt advertising on the reverse side and yet more Hunt advertising for round pointed dip pens on the inside.

A smaller panel originally held four Hunt nibs, now two remain tucked inside their little cardboard holders, one No. 24 Ledger and one No. 55 Scholar.

Hunt's return address is Camden NJ with 1 cent postage paid on Permit No. 8. It is hand addressed, in ink of course to W.A. Lee at the State Bank of Roseville, Ill with a handwritten notation from Mr. Lee, I assume: A good pen for every day use. I love the advertising jargon from days gone by when pictures were far and few in between and every word counted, one line reads:

Do not think us vain when we tell you that the greatest improvements ever made in writing implements is embodied in Hunt's Round Pointed Pens. Measures 6 5/8 in x 2.5 in folded and 6 5/8 in x 7 in when flat. It does show some light wear on the edges, but considering it went from NJ to IL via the post office, I'd say it has survived very well!

DIP666 C. Brandauer & Co Scribbler Pen with one Scribbler dip pen nib. $10

Heavy white card with deckle edge printed in black ink. On the reverse side is a personal holiday note dated December 1997.

I suspect this was a reproduction of a Brandauer ad or nib card and was used as a holiday card. Nibs are original nibs and very nice.

DIP667 Joseph Gillott & Sons Ltd 5696 Contango dip pen nib $10

Heavy white card with deckle edge printed in black ink. On the reverse side is a personal holiday note dated December 1998. I suspect this was a reproduction of a Gillott’s ad or nib card and was used as a holiday card. Nib is original nib and very nice.

DIP674 Esterbrook Commercial Pens Display Assortment Box $10

DIP676 Electric Pen Display Assortment Box $15

While perhaps not as well known as Esterbrook, Hunt, Spencerian and other big names, Electric was the name of a dip pen company. This is a pretty basic box with glass lid that is no longer hinged. Decorative gold foil remains on two sides. Nib compartments are cardboard. Sections are marked for Falcon No. 51. Extra Fine No. 52, School No. 53, Bank No. 54, Stub No. 55 and Falcon No. 51. Large center section in black with gold lettering. Measures 5.25 x 7.25 inches. Very unusual to find much of anything, even nibs from Electric.

Very good condition.
