Vintage Nib Set in Slide Opening Tin
Vintage Nib Set in Slide Opening Tin

Vintage Dip Pen Nib Set in one of our Slide Opening Tins,
with small Chamois leather protective strip.

All nibs are genuine, unused, ‘new old stock’ vintage nibs manufactured by William Mitchell. 

An excellent selection of Writing nibs, some rare and unusual.


Geo W Hughes white horse single nib

White Horse

The White Horse is Steel and lightly impressed with the image of a horses head.
They have a Medium point suitable for Writing and Drawing. Smooth feel across the paper.
Very good continuous ink flow - I wrote two lines across an A4 sheet of paper before needing to re-dip.
This is superoir to many nibs and shows why they were much used in Schools.

Ideal for a smooth writing style, produces thin and thick lines, with a medium to strong action.
Fits most penholders in common use.

W M nibs were produced for customers worldwide and this one was made for Sweden.
‘Svenska'  Folkskole Pennay No. 947F (roughly translated - Swedish Elementary School Pen).
An unusual shaped nib made of polished Stainless Steel with good continuous ink flow.
It has medium elastic, medium fine line and will write in any direction. 

Fits correctly into the William Mitchell and the J&T multi holders.

‘Fleetwing’ No. 528 M (medium) from the William Mitchell 'Pedigree' Series (possibly named after a ship).

The Colt


‘The Colt’ Pen for J A Kennett of London and stamped 1910 (possibly named after The Colt revolver that was in the news that year).

fine horse shoe dip pen nib by william mitchell
Fine Horse Shoe

Tanners 1st Class ‘Fine Horse Shoe’ No. 43, with a rare design of the breather hole - a horseshoe. 
From information on the nib boxes these were made for R T Tanner & Co Ltd, Paper Merchants, Envelope Makers and Manufacturing Stationers.
A company that existed from 1859 to 1994 (history on this web site http://www.rttanner.co.uk/index.html).
On the website there is reference to a special Company outing at the ‘Horse Shoe Hotel’ maybe the nib was made to celebrate the occasion?

Smooth style and very fine line.
