USING FOUNTAIN PENS
Fountain pen writing is a unique experience. Vintage pens use liquid ink and split metal fountain pen tips or
Nibs. The ink is stored internally in antique pens either in a rubber ink sack, ink converter or in later collectible pen models,
a plastic ink cartridge. The liquid ink flows through a grooved section to the fountain pen nib. The free flowing ink results in a
smooth writing experience that cannot be duplicated with ball point pens or pencils.

HISTORY- The Eversharp Skyline Fountain pen was designed by famed industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss and was introduced in 1941. One of Dreyfuss’ previous designs was the streamlined steam locomotive of the Twentieth Century Limited train and if you look at the pen from the end of the cap, you will see a definite resemblance between the pen and the locomotive. The design is typical of the Art Deco era.
Henry Dreyfuss, a native of Brooklyn New York, was a celebrated industrial designer through the 1930s and 1940s. Dreyfuss applied a common sense approach to design problems. Specializing in the design of consumer products Dreyfuss dramatically improved the look, feel, and usability of dozens of items. Dreyfuss designs include Western Electric 302 model telephone 1930, Hoover Model 150 Vacuum Cleaner 1936, Westclox Big Ben Alarm Clock 1939, New YorkCentral Railroads Streamlined Mercury Train 1936, The Twentieth Century Limited Locomotive 1938, John Deere Tractors 1938, The Wahl Eversharp Skyline Pen 1940, Royal Typewriters 1940s, Bell System Telephones 1949 - 1965, Several American Steamships 1951, The Honeywell Circular Wall Thermostat 1953, Hoover vacuum cleaners 1954 - 57 and The Polaroid SX-70 Land camera 1972.
Until 1920 Dreyfuss studied as an apprentice to theatrical designer Norman Bel Geddes, his later competitor, and opened his own office in 1929 for theatrical and industrial design activities. It was an immediate and long-lasting commercial success. As of 2005 his firm continues to operate as Henry Dreyfuss Associates with major corporate clients.
