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 is in a pattern Parker called Grain d’Orge – or Fine Barley which is on gold plate over a brass base. It dates from c1983. Around the lip of the cap are the words “Parker Made in France LE” and the Parker logo. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel which is designed to increase the writer’s grip. The nib states “Parker 75cm France”. The feed has “F” on the reverse denoting a fine point and this is in fact the case. 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 squeezebox 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 very good with only minor age wear. It measures 127mm with cap on and 14mm with cap on barrel end. It is a pleasing weight in the hand and the cap has a comforting click when replacing it on the barrel. An attractive and substantial fountain pen it is suitable for everyday use, if you prefer a fine nib point, or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced 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 attractive vintage fountain pen, seen as a variation on the “61”, was launched by Parker in 1969 and called the “65”. As you will see from the montage, instead of an arrow on the shell tip as you have with the “61”, the “65” has a distinctive open cropped nib which, it was felt, would offer more flexibility than the “61”.  It was available in a variety of finishes and this the Flighter de Luxe – with modern styling of brushed stainless steel with rolled gold trim and metal dome shaped cap crown - was available from 1975. All finishes were discontinued by 1983. It comes with a matching propelling pencil and the original Parker presentation box. The fountain pen currently has a squeezebox fill system but will also take modern Parker ink cartridges and measures 134mm with cap on and 143mm with cap on barrel end. The nib states “Parker 14k 585” and has a smooth medium point nib. The propelling pencil measures 127mm, has its original eraser under the cap and spare leads in the magazine. Condition of fountain pen, pencil and presentation box is very good. This vintage fountain pen and pencil set will serve very well as everyday writers but will also sit comfortably in a collection illustrating the middle ground of the Parker transition from “61” to “65” and then to the “75”. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and an alternative gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you can select your method of payment.

This exceptionally popular fountain pen range 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 in the early 1970’s and forms part of their “Place Vendôme” series. The “Ecossais” pattern on silver plate over brass has eleven grid bands on the cap. The model is often confused with the later issued “Prince de Galles” that has only seven. “Ecossais” is French for Scottish – and as you will see from the montage the pattern is similar to tartan. Around the lip of the cap are the words “Parker Made in France”,the Parker logo and the 30 microns mark – indicating an earlier model. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel - this was designed to increase the writer’s grip. The smooth medium point nib states “France 750 Parker”.  The feed has “M” on the reverse. The section threads are plastic and the tassies flat. It is filled either by using the squeezebox filler unit as shown in the montage 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 fair to good with some brassing as you will see in the montage and I have priced it accordingly. It measures 127mm with cap on and 142mm with cap on barrel end. A slim, elegant and, in this pattern, quite rare late vintage fountain pen in an attractive 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 or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection as a fair to good example of its type. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before dispatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you are also able to select your payment method.

This delightful lever filling Waterman sterling silver overlay vintage pen and pencil set was made in America around 1930. The overlay pattern is termed "Basketweave". In common with the fashion at the time it has a ring on the top of the cap of both fountain pen and pencil rather than a clip. It was designed to take a ribbon or chain through the cap ring, which enabled ladies to wear it around the neck or a gentlemen to hang it from a watch chain. It has the Waterman branding on the lip of the pen cap and towards the crown of the pencil. The model number 452½v is on the bottom of the pen barrel – it follows the Waterman numbering of 4 = sterling silver, 52½ = slender size and lever fill and “v” = short length. The Waterman "Ideal" lozenge is on the pen lever and the personalization lozenge on both items is clear. Condition is good with some minor age wear and a couple of small dings at the bottom of the pen barrel where the cap sits when writing. The fine to medium point Waterman Ideal nib has some flex and it is a pleasure to use. The pencil has lead in the chamber, which you extend or retract by turning the nozzle. The fountain pen measures 95mm with cap on and 130mm with cap on barrel end. The pencil measures 93mm (both taking into account the ring top). A small but exceptional vintage fountain pen and pencil set suitable to either add to a collection or to use everyday. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you are also able to select your payment method.

This vintage fountain pen  - the Parker 45 was launched in the U.S.A. in the 1960’s and proved to be a very popular economy pen. It was named after the famous Western pistol and was the first pen Parker issued which would take an ink cartridge. The model subsequently became available in the U.K. and this example the Parker 45 Harlequin with its Black Shield pattern dates from 1981 and was phased out in 1983. Whilst it will take Parker ink cartridges, this particular example also comes with the Parker squeezebox fill system fitted. The nib is made of steel and has a firm fine to medium point. The text around the cap lip states “Parker Made in England AE”. Interestingly it has a “Parker U.S.A.” squeezebox filler unit. It is a long slim and very stylish pen measuring 135mm with cap on and 149mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is very good. It will serve well as an everyday writer but is also worth a place in a vintage fountain pen collection as an example of Parker design that was only available for a short period. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order.

This vintage fountain pen was made in 1935 by Henry C Stephens Limited (ink manufacturers in London). It is reported that it was their first fountain pen with a new self-filling mechanism. Their 1935 advertisement to the trade stated “The well known name of Stephens is a guarantee of excellence that everyone will recognise….no lever to break…no screw cap to lose. The three model numbers identified the then retail prices – No.56 5/6, No. 76 7/6 and this, the No.106, at 10/6 (ten shillings and six pence). It is a button filling pen but with a difference in that there is no need to fully remove the blind cap at the end of the barrel to fill the pen – so you are not in danger of losing it. It was available in five colours including this, the very attractive black/gold marble. The barrel imprint reads “Stephens No.106 Made in England Prov. Pat.”. The cap carries a ball ended Stephens branded clip with two thin cap bands. The nib states “Warranted 14ct 1st Quality” and has a smooth fine to medium point. Condition is good with very little age wear. It is a chunky size vintage fountain pen measuring 127mm with cap on and 149mm with cap on barrel end. An attractive vintage fountain pen, which will serve well as an everyday writer or to add to a collection as an example of Stephens new self-filling mechanism. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you can select your method of payment.

This Parker Duofold De Luxe vintage fountain pen in a Black and Pearl finish was made in Canada around 1932 and is a classic Parker fountain pen of the period. The cap sports the gold plated Parker branded ball ended clip and has three cap bands, the middle one being broader than the others and denoting the De Luxe version. The barrel imprint reads “Geo. S. Parker Duofold Made in Canada”. The Canadian Parker nib has a smooth fine point that reads “Parker Duofold Pen 18ct Canada”. You will note from the montage that the barrel is darker than the cap and this is due to age ambering – a common occurrence with this model – nonetheless it remains a very attractive vintage Parker. Condition is good with a crisp imprint and only minor age wear. It fills by unscrewing the blind cap at the bottom of the barrel and pressing in the metal button – then releasing – leaving the nib in the ink for 5-10 seconds to allow ink to enter the interior sac. It is a medium length and chunky pen measuring 127mm with cap on and 155mm with cap on barrel end. So a classic vintage fountain pen, from an excellent manufacturer at the height of their powers of production and design. It is suitable to use as an everyday writer or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and 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 check out where you are also able to select your payment method.

This quite rare vintage fountain pen and pencil set was made in the U.S.A. by Parker in 1942. It is an early model Parker “51” Vacumatic fountain pen and pencil set in a colour Parker termed India Black. The fountain pen cap carries the Parker “Blue Diamond” emblem which was Parker’s answer to the “Sheaffer white dot – guaranteed for life”. As expected there is no “Blue Diamond” emblem on the pencil. The cap of both fountain pen and pencil are in coin silver with a smooth broad lip band and crowned with the Parker pearlised grey “jewel”. The text below the clutch ring states (in double line imprint) “Parker “51” 2. Made in U.S.A.”. The Parker “51” hooded nib has a fine to medium point. You will notice a join two thirds down the pen barrel. This is where the barrel unscrews to reveal the vacumatic plastic speedline pump filler illustrated on the montage. The pencil has an expel/repel mechanism and is in working order. As you will see from the montage the set comes in the original leather effect hard covered case with Parker branding and a tube of Parker replacement pencil leads. Fountain pen, pencil and case are in good condition with only minor age wear and some brassing primarily on the pencil tip. The fountain pen measures 143mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end. The pencil measures 133mm. An excellent vintage fountain pen set in its original presentation box, part of Parker’s history and an ideal addition to a vintage fountain pen collection. It will also serve well as an everyday writing set if you prefer a fine to medium point. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions for both fountain pen and pencil will be sent with your order.

This vintage Parker Duofold fountain pen was made in England in the 1940’s at the Newhaven factory. The pattern is called Light and Dark Blue Pearl and Black and it really is quite striking. You will see from the montage how the light blue pearl reflects the light. The barrel text reads “Parker Duofold, Geo S. Parker REG.T.M.”.  The cap has two gold fill cap bands and the Parker ball ended clip. The smooth medium Parker nib reads “Parker Duofold Pen 14K N”. It is a small Duofold measuring 115mm with cap on and 145mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with some minor age wear. It is a button filling pen which means you take off the small screw-on cap at the bottom of the barrel to reveal a button. Put the nib in the ink and press down and release the button and this will allow the ink to flow into the inner sac. It is an attractive fountain pen in an unusual finish and is suitable for everyday writing or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced 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 and filling instructions will be sent with your order.

This stylish Parker Duofold vintage fountain pen was made in England at Parker’s Newhaven plant. On its launch in 1946 Parker called it the “New Style Duofold”. Easily recognisable with its slightly chunky styling, ornate cap lip band and blind cap metal tassle, it was available in two solid and three marble colours. This particular example is in Classic Black which contrasts well with the rolled gold trim. The barrel imprint states “Geo S.Parker – Parker Duofold Reg. T.M.”. The Parker 14ct medium point nib states “Parker Duofold Pen 14k N” – the “N” referring to the Newhaven plant. It is a good size, slightly chunky, vintage button filling fountain pen measuring 130mm with cap on and 154mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is fair to good with cosmetic wear only and this is reflected in the price. This restored New Style Duofold with its classic styling will now provide many more years of everyday writing service. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and 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 where you can also select your method of payment.
