Please 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.
