This iconic Parker Senior Duofold fountain pen, also known as the “Parker Big Red” was made in the USA around 1926 and is a classic Parker fountain pen of the period. It is an early version of this model – denoted by its single raised cap band. It is a very large vintage pen measuring 14.2cm with cap on and 17.9cm with cap on barrel end. The cap sports the original gold plated Parker ball ended clip with the text “Pat.Sep. 5 16 Parker” and a single raised cap band. The barrel imprint is good and states “Geo S. Parker Fountain Pen, Toronto, Canada” with the Parker “Lucky Curve” banner. The “Lucky Curve” relates to the type of feed which was used by Parker until August 1928. From that date the “Lucky Curve” feed was replaced by a more conventional feed but the barrel imprints continued to be used until stocks were exhausted*. Normally this would place it 1928-1930 however the single raised cap band is an indication of an earlier date of manufacture - hence this pen is likely to have had a change of feed to the more conventional “Christmas Tree” type during its lifetime. It has an excellent medium to broad Parker 14ct nib which reads “Parker Duofold Pen Canada”. 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. This classic Parker vintage pen is in good working order with minor age wear and some brassing to the trim. It is an excellent purchase either for everyday use or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. 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 * Reference: Parker Duofold - David Shepherd and Dan Zazove - Surrenden Press 2006

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. Filling instructions will be sent with your order.

This stylish Parker fountain pen and ballpen set, from a recently purchased collection, form part of their “Cloud” series issued in the 1970’s. This particular pattern is called “Stratus” – the image on the  rolled gold finish on both items resembles a light cloud formation – and dates from 1976. You will note from the montage that the “Stratus” pattern is relieved by a broad plain rolled gold band on the pen and ballpoint cap that carries the words “Parker Made in England”. The fountain pen has a medium point nib with good ink flow. It has a twist fill system in place but it will also take Parker ink cartridges if you prefer. The ballpoint has a black ink refill and is activated by a clicking the cap down onto the barrel. It will take current Parker ballpoint refills. The fountain pen measures 13.5cm with cap on and 14.5cm with cap on barrel end. The ballpoint measures 13cm. Condition is near mint - it has been filled with ink for testing. The Parker 61 is an elegant vintage fountain pen with its rolled gold arrow at the shell tip pointing the way to the nib, the combination of this and the “Stratus” pattern is especially fine. It is also 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. 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.

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 Grange d’or – 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 12.7cm with cap on and 14cm 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 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 fine silver filigree overlay vintage fountain pen was made in the USA by Waterman c1929. The silver filigree overlay pattern is called “Basketweave” and was produced in both a gold fill and sterling silver overlay finish. The cap has the word “Waterman’s Sterling” around the rim. The ball ended clip has the Waterman’s “Ideal” logo, “Sterling” around its crown and“Clip Cap” along its length. The barrel has the original Waterman lever complete with “Ideal” logo. The top of the barrel is marked “Sterling”. The silver is overlaid on hard rubber, the base material used for a large number of fountain pens at the time. You will note that the far end of the barrel is clear of overlay (as it should be). The text that usually appears on this area has worn away with time and (under a glass) you will see there are a number of teeth marks. The very bottom of the barrel has the model number “452”. The medium point nib, whilst not being the smoothest, has some flex and states “Waterman Ideal – New York”For these reasons I have listed this pen as in “fair to good” condition and priced it accordingly. It is a good size vintage fountain pen measuring 14cm with cap on and 17cm with cap on barrel end. It is also an elegant pen and a pleasing weight and balance in the hand. Despite its imperfections it remains a good example of a top quality Waterman pen of the period. It will add value to a vintage fountain pen collection and is also suitable to use everyday - providing many more years of writing service. 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.

This vintage fountain pen and ballpoint set forms part of the successful Targa range - a very successful model produced by the Sheaffer Pen Company in the U.S.A. - this particular example, issued between 1988 and 1996, has a Garnet Red Ronce lacquer finish with gold plated trim and black inlay on both ends of the fountain pen and the crown of the ballpoint. The fountain pen sports the stylish Sheaffer 14ct gold inlaid nib with a fine to medium point which states "Sheaffer 585 14k". As you will see from the montage there is minimum age wear. Note that the ballpoint has small marks on the gold plated trim of the tip. As you would expect they both have the Sheaffer "Lifetime" dot on the clip. The fountain pen is filled by fitting a Sheaffer ink cartridge. As with most ink cartridges when first fitting you will need to give it a squeeze to push the ink through to the feed. It will also take a standard international size ink cartridge. It measures 13.8 cm with cap on and 16.5cm with cap on barrel end. The ballpoint is a twist expel/repel system and is 13cm long. It has a black ink refill in place that seems to be working well. The Targa range is fast becoming highly collectable and, with its large range of finishes, is an interesting model to collect. The fountain pen is a good writer and a pleasure to use everyday. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. and bench tested prior to offering for sale.

This not so very vintage fountain pen, part of a recently purchased collection, was made by Parker around 1990. In the words of the Parker brochure of the time “It captures the classic elegance and style that made the original Duofold a design landmark of the 1920’s.” This, the medium size International version measures 13.1cm long with cap on and 16.5cm long with cap on barrel end. The attractive finish Parker termed “Marbled Blue”. The trim is 23 karat gold plated and the cap has the longer, more durable clip with one broad and one thin cap band. The 18ct Parker “arrow” nib is their No.76 which has a broad oblique italic point. I find it pleasing to use as a right hand writer and I have had it tested for ease of use by a left handed writer. I am advised that it workds well if you write with the normal "push" method for a left hand but if you are a left hand writer who turns the hand inward to write it will not be suitable. It takes Parker ink cartridges. Condition is good with only minor age wear. It does have a chip on the barrel blind cap but this is reflected in the price. It is an attractive, good size, near vintage fountain pen which will provide many years of writing service and is a fine tribute to the original Duofolds of the 1920’s and 1930’s. It has been bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection will be carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout.
