APRIL 15, 2013: LATEST UPDATE WITH NEARLY 40 GREAT PENS IS UP!
I am Jon Rosenbaum in Irvine, California and have been collecting, restoring, and selling vintage fountain pens for nearly twenty years. I occasionally sell on ebay under my id, jonlr, and have well over 900 positive feedbacks with no negatives. I also attend the major pen shows in Los Angeles, Chicago, Columbus, and Washington DC. At Jon's Vintage Pens you will find a nice selection of wonderful fully restored vintage and contemporary writing instruments.
I'm always interested in purchasing vintage and contemporary fountain pens, one piece or a collection. So if you are thinking of selling, do email me as I will pay very competitive prices.
Unless otherwise stated, all pens have been restored and ready to enjoy. Our restorations include a thorough cleaning, replacement of the sac, resetting the nib and adjusting flow (as necessary), removal of residual ink in the cap and from the barrel threads, and a gentle polish to bring the pen's appearance as close as possible to the day it left the factory.
All our items are guaranteed to be as described. If you are not happy with your pen, I gladly accept returns. Just send the pen back to me within seven days of receipt in the same condition as received, and I will refund your purchase price. If you have questions about a pen or would like me to put a pen aside for you, please email me at
. I will get back to you regarding shipping and insurance costs costs to your location. Domestic USA postage will be $6.00 and insurance, if desired, will depend upon value. Foreign buyers will pay shipping at cost. I use heavy corrugated cardboard boxes with peanuts and bubble wrap to protect the pen from rough handling. Personal checks and money orders preferred, but Paypal is also accepted. International buyers may submit payment via Western Union, a bank check from a U.S. bank in dollars, as well as Paypal.
FLASH!! We've just acquired the new gorgeous Pelilkan M800 in Tortoise - just one left! Also just in, the Pilot Vanishing Point 2012 Limited Edition - Just two available! And finally, we have a limited number of the wonderful Pelikan M320's in Ruby Red. These pens are being offered at very, very competitive prices. So if you've contemplated buying one, now's your chance - just go to the "Modern/Contemporary" menu for the details.
