This vintage fountain pen – is a Parker/Kullock “51”. The cap has been customised by the famous Brazilian jeweller and pen maker, Ariel Kullock, who has no doubt used as his inspiration the famous original Parker Aztec pen designs of the early 1900’s. (An example of these the No.60, 1915 eyedropper, can be found in the Fischler and Schneider book “The Golden Age of Writing Instruments” p.100) The striking symbols of an Aztec warrior, oval shield and an “Awanyu” similar to the Isle of Man Triskelion (three legs of man), form the main part of the cap design. The cap lip carries the Parker branding and symbols similar to “yk”. I understand these to be symbols which in speech sound like “Parker”. Kullock is known for superimposing modern parts onto vintage components and he does it extremely well. The Parker 14k nib has a medium point. The aerometric filler style dates the pen from the late 1940’s to late 1950's and so I have used this as a guide date for listing. Condition is good with only minor age wear. It measures 13.7cm with cap on and15cm with cap on barrel end. A most unusual Parker 51 barrel and cap combination, certainly one to add to a vintage fountain pen collection and it will also serve well as a stylish every day writer. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and are bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout.

This Parker fountain pen and pencil set – the Parker 45 DeLuxe - was launched in the U.S.A. in the 1960’s and forms part of a recently purchased collection. It was named after the famous Western pistol and it was a very popular model in its day. It was also the first pen Parker issued which would take an ink cartridge. The model also became available in the U.K. but this U.S.A. example, dating from 1967, is quite rare to find here, particularly in this olive green finish. The fountain pen will take current Parker ink cartridges. The pencil has an expel/repel action and is in working order. The olive green barrel sits well with the Parker lustraloy cap with its rolled gold clip and the black and olive green combination near the part hooded nib is a pleasing design detail. Whilst it has been used previously, condition is very good with only minor age wear. It comes in its original clear plastic lidded box. The lid is quite worn (and carries a “Loss Insurance Offer” sticker!) but the inner is in good order. You will note the original price tickets are on both items but I’m afraid they have been hit by inflation since then. The fountain pen has a firm medium point and measures 13.8cm with cap on and 14.7cm with cap on barrel end. The pencil measures 13cm. This set is a good example of the Parker 45 which will be an excellent everyday writer as well as an interesting addition, particularly in this colour, to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and are bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order. My apologies for the workbench dust on the montage.

The classic vintage fountain pen was made by Sheaffer c1970 and it incorporates their popular “Touchdown” piston filling method as used in their PFM range. This particular example has a gold fill overlay with the cap sporting the Sheaffer white dot lifetime guarantee. The inlaid Sheaffer nib has a medium to slightly broad smooth point and the barrel and cap have attractive alternating lined and clear panels. It measures 14cm with cap on and 15cm with cap on barrel end. Condition is fair to good with some general age wear on the overlay and a very minor pinprick indentation to the left of the clip. This is reflected in the price. A good every day writer. My apologies for the light reflection in the montage.

This exceptionally popular fountain pen, part of a recently purchased collection, was launched by Parker in the USA in 1964 and, in its various finishes, was produced for the next thirty years. Parker called it the “75” following on from their usage of numbers to denote models which restarted with the “51”. This particular example was manufactured in the Parker factory in France and forms part of their Laqué Collection. It is in their Lapis Lazuli finish and the date code around the cap lip states 2nd quarter of 1984. Also around the lip of the cap are the words “Parker Made in France” and the Parker logo. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel, designed to increase the writer’s grip. The nib states “Parker 585 France 14k”. The feed has “54” on the reverse denoting a broad point. The section threads are plastic and the top of the cap and end of the barrel are dished. It can be filled either by using the twist fill that is in place or by inserting a Parker ink cartridge (as usual with ink cartridges you will need to give the cartridge a squeeze once in position to start the ink flow). Condition is near mint – it has been filled with ink for testing. It measures 13cm with cap on and 14.5cm with cap on barrel end. A slim and elegant late vintage fountain pen in a beautiful finish. It has a pleasing weight in the hand and a comforting click when replacing the cap on the barrel. It is suitable for everyday use, if you prefer a broad point, or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge at checkout.

This vintage fountain pen was made by Parker in the U.S.A. around 1955. Its aerodynamic design has made it a classic and the plaudits it has received over the years both in terms of design and reliability are well deserved. Its contribution to design is evidenced by it having been displayed in the Design Museum in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York and it has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”. This particular example has a burgundy body with a gold fill cap. The Parker 51 nib carries the text “Parker Made in U.S.A. RU” and has a smooth medium point. It measures 14cm with cap on and 15.2cm with cap on barrel end. The gold fill cap has the Parker grey “jewel” on the cap crown. Around the cap lip it carries the text “Parker, Made in U.S.A. 1/10 12k Gold Filled” The aerometric filling system is often termed "squeezebox" and is a very simple method of filling the pen with ink by unscrewing the barrel to expose a metal shell covering the ink sac - just press the metal bar and release up to five times and this vintage pen is ready to use. In this example the metal shell also carries U.S.A. markings. Condition is good with only minor age wear and some brassing to the trim. This classic vintage fountain pen, with its U.S.A. origin, is suitable to add to a vintage fountain pen collection and will serve equally well as an every day workhorse. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and are bench tested prior to offering for sale.

This exceptional vintage fountain pen was created by The Parker Pen Company in Newhaven (holders of the Royal Warrant) in 2002 to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the accession to the throne of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It is called the Duofold Accession fountain pen (not to be confused with the Sonnet Special Jubilee Edition). With a limited edition of 1,952 made available worldwide and only 100 of those released in the UK, (this example is number 1,598) it is a writing instrument of exceptional quality and design. It has a matt 23 carat gold plated finish on cap and barrel and both bear the etched inscription “Queen Elizabeth II by the Grace of God, Queen of this Realm and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith’. It also has a 23 carat gold trim and section and a 1.5 carat amethyst set in the crown of the cap. It has a specially created nib, which has a medium point, and is engraved ER II. The bottom of the barrel has the Jubilee logo. It comes, as you will see from the montage, with its Certificate of Authenticity. Not shown, but also included, is the accompanying booklet containing images from the Queen’s 50 year reign. Condition is excellent. The nib appears to have been dipped in ink and wiped but the pen has not been filled. It is being sold complete with the original packaging, including the outer box, the original box of ink cartridges and bottle ink filler unit. It was purchased by a Parker employee as a “staff sale” in 2002. Whilst not a fountain pen of great age, it was released to commemorate the service of a great Queen and is as unique as its namesake. It will be an exceptional addition to a fountain pen collection.

This vintage pen and pencil set, part of a recently purchased collection, was made in England by Parker around 1953. The aerodynamic design of the Parker 51 fountain pen has made it a classic and the plaudits it has received over the years both in terms of design and reliability are well deserved. It has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”.  This particular example, a set of fountain pen and pencil, has a grey body which Parker called “Navy Grey” (a slightly lighter grey than in the montage) and a Parker lustraloy cap with “jewel” end and arrow clip. The fountain pen has a Parker 51 smooth fine to medium nib. The aerometric filling system is often termed "squeezebox" and is a very simple method of filling the pen with ink by unscrewing the barrel to expose a metal shell covering the ink sac - just press the metal bar and release up to five times and this vintage pen is ready to use. The matching pencil, which is an early propelling type, is in full working order and takes 1.18mm leads which are available on line from Yard O Led.Condition is good with only minor age wear.The fountain pen barrel text reads “Made in England .3”. It measures 13.7cm with cap on and 15cm with cap on barrel end. The pencil measures 13.2cm. This is a good example of a classic vintage Parker fountain pen and pencil set.  It comes in its original hard case with a hinged lid, silk lined branded interior and with Parker branding on the case lid. This classic vintage fountain pen set is in good condition and is suitable to add to a collection or to use as everyday writers. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch.

The Parker 61 is an elegant vintage fountain pen with its rolled gold arrow at the shell tip pointing the way to the nib. This particular example is in a finish Parker called their “Cloud” series issued in the 1970’s. This pattern dating from 1976 is called “Cumulus” – the image on the rolled gold finish resembles a heavy cloud formation. You will note from the montage that the “Cumulus” pattern wraps itself around the whole of the pen and is relieved by a broad plain rolled gold band on the pen cap that carries the words “Parker Made in England”. The fountain pen has a medium point nib with good ink flow. It has a sliding filler system in place but it will also take Parker ink cartridges if you prefer. It measures 13.8cm with cap on and 14.5cm with cap on barrel end. It is a chunky size and a good weight in the hand with excellent balance when writing, as one should, with the cap on the end of the barrel. The model was discontinued in 1982. It forms part of a recently purchased collection, and appears to be new old stock as condition is very good. It has been inked for testing. It is quite a rare pattern to find, particularly in this condition and will make an excellent addition to a vintage fountain pen collection but will serve equally well as a stylish  everyday writer. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout.
