Hi folks, I got this idea after reading through Unlucky Berman's delightful collection of vintage watch advertisments for the Hamilton Watch Company. I thought I'd start up a thread with assorted fountain pen advertisements. Rather than restricting it to a particular pen-maker, I decided to create a thread of vintage fountain pen advertisements, regardless of branding. I think it's a great pity that ads like this aren't printed anymore. They're so colourful and well-illustrated... Sheaffer Skrip fountain pen i...ahem...WRITING...FLUID. 1953. These 'skripwell' bottles as they were affectionately known as, disappeared from shops fairly recently. It's a pity they're not manufactured anymore. A little older than the period of this forum, Waterman's Ideal Fountain Pens were manufactured during the 1900s-1910s. Waterman Pens. 1935. Conklin Crescent-Filler fountain pens. 1917. The Conklin Crescent-Filler was one of the first successful fountain pens, and it spelt the doom of the dip-pen, as this advertisement clearly suggests. One of the several ads advertising the famous Parker '51', from the 1950s.
