Tiffany Silver Ballpoint Pens
About This Model
Timsvintagepens is not a modern pens restoration and sales practice, but modern pens inevitably find their way to Timsvintagepens. My dividing line between modern and vintage pens is usually the absence of a latex sac and a sac filling mechanism; instead, they usually have cartridge/converters, pistons or captured pistons. Modern, larger batch pens are only rarely made of ebonite or celluloid, are usually made of acrylic resins.
About This Pen
There isn’t a lot to say about these three Tiffany silver ballpoint pens, except that they’re elegant, well-made, and in good condition! 1. Tiffany “T”, full-size at 12.3cm long and slender at .9cm across, feels very good in a larger hand and has some heft. It is made of sterling silver, and although has use scratching and a few spots of deep tarnish around the crown, is in very attractive condition. It has a working refill, although one can’t tell how old the refill is. 2. Tiffany “T”, “ladies” size, 10.5cm and .7cm across, this is a lighter pen, and a nice size to be carried for occasional use. It is made of 825 grade silver, not sterling, so has a very nice shine and very little use evidence. It has a nonfunctional refill, but it will come with the pen to match with a fresh refill. 3. Tiffany, model unidentified. One has to assume this was also marketed for ladies, since it is 11cm long but only .7cm across, with no clip or ring. Both ends come to a long taper, a beautiful design. It is in sterling, with a ringed pattern along its entire length to the last 5mm or so at crown and base. It has very little scratching, is in excellent condition. This pen also has a nonfunctional refill, but it will come with the pen to match with a fresh refill. Regarding the refills, my research indicates that appropriate refills for these pens are readily available, if not specifically for Tiffany pens. These pens are $30 each, $50 for two, $60 for all three. First one sold gets the proper Tiffany pouch! (In theory, two more pouches are here somewhere, but apparently have not yet revealed their location.) Wait, there’s more! There is also an Elsa Peretti Tiffany pen, with the timeless teardrop clip. It’s full-sized, with an unfortunate full-sized dent on and under the teardrop, the one place where it will always be seen. One wonders if this is why it’s crying…this pen is $15, free with a purchase of one of the others.
