Product Information

ESTERBROOK RELIEF No 12 Fountain Pen

RESERVED 06/2018 (AJ)        

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

This is the No 12,  in TIGER'S EYE with gold plated fittings - black cap stud and barrel end.

Lever filler - dates to early 1950s and measures 130mm closed.

Single narrow cap band - 'R' for Relief stamped on both pocket clip and filling lever.

Barrel imprint 'Relief No 12'  'Made in England' around barrel end.

Correct 14ct Gold nib stamped -'Relief 14ct 2 Made in England Esterbrook & Co.' with heart shaped breather.

LEFT HAND OBLIQUE ITALIC NIB in excellent condition. Beautifully smooth writer, with good ink flow.

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

Pen is in excellent condition - no scratches or cracks. Normal light usage marks which hardly show against this pattern.

Barrell treads are a little short indicating some wear but the cap closes very securely so not really a problem.

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

As with Conway Stewarts the Tiger's Eye pattern is quite scarce. Very nice example with a super nib!
