Product Information

BURNHAM 65  Fountain Pen      Button Filler  Broad 14ct Nib.    

BLACK with gold plated trim - wide cap band - pocket clip stamped 'Burnham' with 'B' logo to cap stud.

Button filler -  c1948 - Made in England.   Nice chunky size, measures 135mm (5 3/8") closed.

Crisp barrel imprint 'Burnham No 65 London England.'

14ct Gold nib stamped 'Burnham 14ct Gold Osmirideum.'  BROAD nib but not too broad, more broad side of medium. 

Nib possibly has slight right oblique but this could be just wear! A little untidy at the tip but it writes beautifully smooth with good ink flow. Please see writing sample.

Button filler - fully serviced - dismantled and ultrasonically cleaned - new sac and replacement pressure bar - nib smoothed and tuned. Pen hand polished and write tested - perfect working order. 

Pen is in very good used condition. No cracks or scratches but normal usage marks where cap posts etc.  Very slight plate loss to edge of cap band but polishes well. Nice glossy finish.

Don't come across Burnham button fillers that often. The vast majority of Burnhams were lever fillers.

This is a really nice example. Practical size, great quality, super to use and very collectable.

I have a soft spot for Burnhams. Used to buy them new from Mr Slightam in Chorlton-cum-Hardy Manchester in the '60s when I was a lad.

Similar pen (in green marble) pictured in Lambrou's Fountain Pens of the World page 153.
