This Parker Junior Duofold fountain pen was made in Canada around 1926 and is a classic Parker fountain pen of the period. It is in a finish Parker termed “Chinese Red” and it was extremely popular at the time. It is a short but quite chunky vintage pen measuring 12cm with cap on and 15 cm with cap on barrel end. The cap sports the original gold plated Parker ball ended clip with the text “Parker” and two thin gold fill cap bands. The Parker 14ct nib has a good medium point and reads “Parker Duofold Pen Canada D”. 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. Condition I have listed as fair to good and this is reflected in the price. You will see from the montage that there is a fair amount of brassing to the cap bands and general age wear. The barrel imprint is very feint. Nonetheless this classic Parker vintage pen is in good working order and is an excellent purchase for everyday use.  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. Filling instructions will be sent with your order. A gift box is available free of charge on request.

This vintage pen, which Waterman called the Lady Patricia, was created in 1930 for the female hand, following the successful sales of the Waterman Patrician range – a much larger fountain pen aimed primarily at the male market. The Stationery Trades’ Journal of the time (November 1930) praised its “slender careful lines and smart modish colour”. It was marketed as having a “smart, modern, feminine cap clasp – holding the pen securely in place, even in the most crowded handbag.” The first Lady Patricia was presented to Miss Amy Johnson (1903-1941) the English female aviator who carried a Waterman fountain pen during her daring solo flight from England to Australia. It was marketed in a range of patterns – this pattern, called Moss Agate, is a very attractive combination of autumnal colours of green and brown. The cap top, clip, single decorated cap band and lever are gold fill. It has its original Waterman nib with a smooth medium point which reads "Waterman's Ideal Canada 2". This delightful vintage pen is in very good condition with a crisp barrel imprint which states “Waterman’s Fountain Pen, Made in Canada” and a cap imprint which reads “Waterman’s Made in Canada”. It measures 11cm with cap on and 13.7cm with cap on barrel end. It is a true reflection of its period and will not only provide many years of writing pleasure but will be equally at home in 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.

This vintage fountain pen - the Parker “51”, was launched in England by Parker in the early 50’s. 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 its display 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 version, rarer than most, has a black body and the sought after rolled silver cap with rolled gold clip. This particular cap was introduced in 1952 and it is believed to have been produced only in England. It comes with a smooth Parker 51 medium point nib. Condition of both pen and cap is good with some age wear to the rolled silver cap as can be seen in the enlarged montage and this is reflected in the price. 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. It measures 13.8cm with cap on and 15.3cm with cap on barrel end. The cap is a firm fit and this will ease with use. The Parker "51" was an outstandingly popular fountain pen in its day and remains a stylish and extremely good “workhorse” today. It is an excellent vintage pen for both everyday use and for signing that important letter/document. 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.

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.

The substantial Conway Stewart No.100 was made in England in the late 1950’s. The No.100 was the most prestigious Conway Stewart of the era. This large, well made pen surpassed even the No.60 in terms of size and style. Produced only in black with rolled gold trim it is an excellent example of Conway Stewart at their best. It has two thin and one broad cap band. The barrel states “Conway Stewart 100” “Made in England”. The original large Conway nib states: “Duro Conway Stewart 14ct Gold 20” and has a medium point. The condition is good with only minor age wear. It measures 13.5cm with cap on and 17cm with cap on barrel end. A substantial classic vintage fountain pen. One to add to a collection and/or use as an everyday writer. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. and bench tested prior to offering for sale.

This exceptional quality late vintage fountain pen was launched by Parker in 1983 as part of their Prestige Collection and the Parker 75 range - they called it the Parker “Premier” (MkII). Manufactured at the Parker factory in France, it sports an 18 carat gold nib and as you will see from the montage, an attractive facetted cap band. It also has a black onyx “jewel’ on the cap crown and the barrel end. Otherwise the appearance, with its sterling silver cross grid design, is very similar to a Parker 75 Ciselle.  The text around the cap band reads “Parker France” and it carries silver markings on the barrel and cap within the grid pattern. It has a squeezebox fill system. The 18ct nib has a smooth medium point. The cap fits snuggly on the end of the barrel for balance whilst writing. It measures 13.7cm with cap on and 15.3cm with cap on barrel end. It is quite a heavy pen weighing 32grams. I purchased it as part of a small bundle of Parker pens that had belonged to a Parker employee, unfortunately now deceased. Condition is very good, not mint, as it has been used for writing. Other than that it appears that it was simply kept as an example of the model. It is a quality late vintage fountain pen from an excellent stable. A fine addition to a vintage fountain pen collection or an impressive and stylish everyday writer. 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 American “Parker 51 Special Liquid Lead Set” in Teal Blue, forms part of a recently purchased collection and is unusual on two counts. First, in that it differs from the standard “51” in that it was launched by Parker in 1950 to appeal to the budget price market - it has a highly polished stainless steel cap with a black plastic cap jewel, a modified fill unit and a nib made from Octanium (providing strength and resistance to wear). Second it is teamed with the Parker Liquid Lead Pencil - launched by Parker in 1955 – you will note the LL on the pencil barrel. It used a refill unit containing graphite and was advertised as “The pencil you never have to sharpen”. Unfortunately it did have some flow problems and it was discontinued in the early 1960’s – along with the refills. The fountain pen on the other hand is in full working order and the set has been priced accordingly. The condition of both items is very good as they have been kept in the original Parker 51 box. This is pretty clean and the box closes but the hinge on the lid has no tension. The set also comes with the original filling leaflet. The fountain pen measures 13.8cm with cap on and 15cm with cap on barrel end. The Liquid Lead pencil measures 12cm. Teal Blue is a rather difficult colour to capture on camera, it is a little greener but the montage is very near it. An interesting part of Parker history in very good condition that will sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection. The pen will also serve well as an everyday writer. 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 was made by Parker in 1946 and is an example of the third generation of a very successful Parker model called the “Vacumatic”. Originally launched in 1932 as the “Vacuum Filler”, it was advertised as holding 102% more ink than other pens available at the time. The barrel is used as the ink reservoir rather than an ink sac which increases the ink capacity. Filled by a then new style vacuum pump mechanism on the barrel end, it was also advertised as “revolutionary in principle and perfectly marvellous in performance”. It became an accepted and reliable filling method which was also initially used for the Parker 51. You will see from the photographs that this third generation model has the subsequent streamlined plastic plunger filling system which can be easily operated with one hand. The barrel was designed to be slightly transparent which allowed you to see the volume of ink held within it – this was more so with the earlier models. By this period it was available in a variety of finishes. This particular example is in a finish termed “Emerald Pearl” and is greener than the illustration. The barrel imprint states “Parker Vacumatic - Made in Canada - REG. T.M.S. 318582 .6”. The medium point nib has the Parker USA arrow design and states “Parker U.S.A. 6” so a mix of origins between pen and nib which was not unusual at the time. The cap has the Parker gold fill feather arrow clip and one broad decorative cap band. It is a standard length, slightly chunky pen measuring 13.3cm with cap on and 15.3cm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with only minor age wear and slight brassing to trim. An interesting and stylish vintage fountain pen suitable for everyday use or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless otherwise stated 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 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 fountain pen was made by Conway Stewart in England in the early 1950’s. The model is a No.58 and it is in the more rare finish of light and dark brown brickwork – which collectors term as “Tiger Eye”. It is an exceptionally attractive finish which catches the light and so it is easy to see how it earned its title. The nib has a smooth medium point and reads “Duro Conway Stewart 14ct. Gold 58” The barrel states “The Conway Stewart No.58”.  The cap, which sports the Conway diamond clip, has one thin cap band and the barrel has the original Conway lever. Condition is fair to good with some age wear to the barrel end and trim. This is reflected in the price. It measures 13 cm with cap on and 15.7cm with cap on barrel end - so a good size vintage pen. This unusual Conway, with its sought after finish, is suitable (even in fair to good condition) to add to a collection or to use as an everyday 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.
