Lot Of 25 Vintage Fountain Pens Merlin Merlina 18 Different Designs Nos No Nibs For SalePlease view all 12 pictures and read the descriptions before offerding. Thanks.
Lot of 25 colorful good-looking incomplete never used vintage Merlina button filler fountain pens made by Merlin, which I believe is or was a fountain pen manufacturer from Belgium. The plastic material is colorful celluloid in 18 different designs and colors (seven pens are duplicates of one other). The size is the same, about 4 9/16" capped. The pens have a cap with a properly attached gold plated clip reading MERLIN, a barrel reading Merlina, a blind cap, a section, and a feed. The section and the barrel are already properly glued together. The feed is loose. To become functional, they need nibs, pressure plates, bladders, and buttons at least; maybe little seals and whatnot. (As a collectible, they need nothing.) Some of the narrow cap bands are lost, some are loose in place, and some are corroded. A few of the clips are a little tarnished as well. The celluloid bodies show a little microscratching here and there but nothing significant. They are still shiny. The name Merlina on the barrels is heat-engraved and gold painted; some of the gold paint was not correctly applied and vanished. Most of the names are fine.
I am offering this colorful lot as a collectible only. If you want to complete them and adjust them for use it is up to you! I was happy to have them as a collectible from.
