Product Information

ESTERBROOK RELIEF No 2-L Fountain Pen

SOLD 12/2018 

The Esterbrook Relief models were made in the UK by Conway Stewart and are excellent quality fountain pens. 

This is an early 2-L basic model without the red cap band dating from the 1930s - BLACK hard rubber with no pattern - gold plated fiitings - 'tear drop' pocket clip stamped 'Relief.'

Hard rubber has slightly faded which is not unusual. Haven't attempted to bring it back to black but it has polished very nicely.

Domed cap top - single cap band - 'R' logo to filling lever. Measures 130mm closed.

Barrel imprint, quite rubbed,  'R Esterbrook & Co RELIEF No 2-L.' Made in England around barrel end.

Correct 14ct Gold nib stamped -'Relief 14ct 2 Made in England Esterbrook.' Nib in top class condition.

Beautifully smooth MEDIUM. Delight to write wih. Reliefs are renowned for the quality of the nibs.

Lever filler - fully serviced and write tested - perfect working  order.

Apart from the slight discolouration, pen is in good condition - no cracks or splits.

Golden Oldie early Relief which has restored well and is a treat to write with. Reasonably priced as well!

Vintage Reliefs are very collectable pens both in their own right and by Conway Stewart enthusiasts.
