This is an excellent example of the famous Parker Duofold Fountain pen. This is the Senior Model, a large pen with a great deal of presence. It is finished in Black Veined Pearl Marble. This material was particularly susceptible to darkening and the barrel on this one has darkened in comparison to the cap.
The pen dates from around 1930 and was made in the USA. The plating to the cap band and clip is good with some wear at the edges and some brassing to the ball on the clip. The cap and barrel are in very good condition and the imprint on the barrel is still clear and legible.
The nib is superb! it is a lovely smooth Medium and is an absolute delight to write with. The pen has been fully serviced and it now works perfectly.
This is a prestigious pen and apart from the barrel darkening, it is in very good condition. The nib is superb!
We are very lucky here at Vintage Fountain Pens Ltd as we are able to continue to run the business from home. However we are taking every precaution to ensure that we all remain safe, all envelopes are new and come from sealed packaging, all pens and accessories are kept in sealed cupboards until required and all work areas are disinfected on a daily basis. We are still taking in repairs and, as long as the Post Office is open, we are able to turn them round very quickly. Let us hope that we get on top of this virus very quickly and we can all get back to normal. Thank you for your continued support.
