Vintage 1919 Collapsible telescoping Victor Fountain Pen By U.S. Fount. Pen Co. N.Y.
This is "VICTOR" fountain pen by "U.S. Fount. Pen Co. N.Y." and it is so marked and it is so marked with the marking "Patented June 24, 1919" as well. U.S. Victor Fountain Pen Company was a pen manufacturer located in New York City; incorporated in 1919 as the U.S. Fountain Pen Company. This pen is one of the company's initial products. It is a Victor collapsible fountain pen, that features a telescoping barrel. When the pen is capped the pen is approximately 4" long; with the barrel extended, as shown is some of our photos, it is about 6" long. On the back end of the barrel is featured a removable blind cap beneath which is a small compartment for smelling salts (or, according to U.S. Patent No 1,307,359' "other substances"). The pen is gold in color and appears to have a gold overlay or fill but I can not find any markings as to the metal make up. The nib is however marked "Warranted 14 KT". I am not sure if this is the original nib or not. There is an engraved monogram on the barrel that reads "EMIL" (see photos). I have not used or tested the pen but it appears to be in good condition with some normal wear and a few dents consistent with age and use (see photos).
