Lovely Huge Oversize J Whytwarth Hallmarked Sterling Silver Safety Fountain Pen For Sale
Large Oversize J WHYTWARTH Sterling Silver
J Whytwarth Safety Propelling Fountain Pen #214 – Overlay Hallmarked
Sterling Silver – Made in England
Safety Propelling Pen, Eyedropper Fill – The pen is in working condition and
the mechanism propels the nib. It works as an eyedropper fill and being over
100 years old I have not actually tested the pen. I am pretty sure that as it
works only using gravity it will work should you intend on using it.
For sale here today is this lovely rather rare vintage J Whytrarth oversized
safety pen. This is a number 214 pen as stamped on the base of the barrel. The
pen is in decent condition and is made from black hard rubber that has a
sterling silver overlay. The overlay is hallmarked on the barrel and is in
fairly decent condition aside from some marks and a few scratches in places as
photographed. The hard rubber is in good condition. There are some chips to the
base of the pen as shown in one of the photos.
This is a pretty rare pen, I am pretty sure there aren’t many more like it
The hallmark on the barrel is rather hard to make out but I have shown two
photos for you to see for yourself.
The base of the barrel reads:
The pen is rather large sized and measures as follows:
Capped - 136mm
Width Barrel - 15mm
The pen is in working order and the mechanism seems to work well.
The pen is fitted with a rather large Warranted 14K gold nib. It is actually a
replacement as the original nib that I have included was badly damaged. I will
include the damaged nib as part of this sale. The warranted nib appears to be
in good condition but I think all the iridium is missing from the tines. It is
marked as follows:
