I have a pair of Cross Townsend for sale here- one is consolidated from another sale posting. Both are brand new, with all boxes and papers. Both colors are discontinued now, and the Lapis is getting harder to find.
1. Cross Townsend, Lapis Lazuli, 18k B Nib, C/C Filler- This is a Cross Townsend fountain pen in the stunning Lapis Lazuli lacquer, a beautiful blue with flakes of gold leaf. Definitely the most beautiful of all the Townsends, though the Jade model runs a close second! The lapis lacquer with gold flakes is complemented by gold plated trim with black lacquer banding. The two toned 18k nib was made by Pelikan. This nib is broad, soft and smooth and writes with a nice chisel tip. This pen is new and unused, though I did dip it to test out the nib.
The pen comes complete with box, assorted paperwork, a bottle of black ink, converter, and box of ink cartridges. The pen is in new/mint condition. There are a few of these on Ebay in the $800-900 range. I think that's high. I'm offering this one for $425, including insured USPS Priority Mail shipping anywhere in the US.
2. Cross Townsend, Emerald, 18k M Nib, C/C Filler- This is a more recent model Townsend, in a very interesting emerald lacquer over a guilloche pattern, complemented by rhodium trim. It's a really interesting color, and changes depending on light, going from a steely blue to teal to green. I really like it. The nib is an 18k two toned medium. The pen is brand new in box with all papers, a pair of cartridges and a converter. The Quartz Blue version of this pen, which is still on sale, retails for $395. I'd like $175 shipped for this one.
