Glass Fountain Pens

I have one or two glass fountain pens in my possession... somewhere.  I used to love the feeling of writing with this type of pen, needing to stop every so often to refill the pen by dipping it into the ink bottle.  I collected inks and bottles, never using the bottles because they were too nice to mess up with the ink.  At the time I also had to keep all my letter writing items in a portable box and any ink that wasn't in a sealed container would have made a huge mess over everything.

I'm thinking the glass pen would be fun to use for drawing.  I have a hunch where they are... unfortunately that hunch is the basement and that is the black hole of our house.
