Esterbrook LJ “Icicle”

1950s
About This Pen

One of the more special forms of the classic Esterbrook J family is the “Icicle”, a later LJ size pen with long dark streaks in its plastic body. These pens are not the heavy celluloid of the earlier pens, but they are very attractive and solidly made. This “Icicle” is in red, and US made, although most I’ve seen are Mexican manufacture. Also, the imprint is vertical, up high near the cap, which is different from the Mexican pens. The nib in this picture is for illustration only; pick your base or premium nib from the Esterbrook listing on this page. Base nibs are included in the pen’s price; premiums add the listed price to that of the pen.
