This is a fabulous example of the rare Parker 45 Harlequin. These pens were only made for a short time due to production difficulties.
This is a New Old Stock example, as perfect as it left the factory 36 years ago! It has never been inked. It is finished in the grey circlet pattern which is rarer than the more usual grey shield pattern.
The pen was made in the UK and is date coded UL for the third quarter of 1981.
It is fitted with a new Steel Fine nib. The pen uses standard Parker Cartridges but a converter can be purchased seperately if you prefer to fill the pen with ink from a bottle.
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.
