> Major-size Vacumatic in Burgundy Pearl
A beautiful condition Major-size Vacumatic fountain pen in burgundy pearl that has an aluminium lock-away filler; there is a little plating wear on the band and just a little on the high points of the tassie ring and the clip. There are no cracks or splits and virtually no scratches either but there are a few teeth marks on the blind cap (see last picture); the blind cap tassie is and the clip tassie are red striped. The pen has been stripped, cleaned, had a new diaphragm fitted, reassembled, adjusted, and write tested. The nib is a medium grade single-colour 14ct gold, and I would think, original to the pen; it writes nicely with some flexibility. The imprint is readable.
