The Parker Duofold Special was first introduced in 1930 as part of the Duofold Streamlined range. The pens were made from Permanite, Parkers name for Celluloid.
The colours on this model are still strong and the imprint on the barrel is a little worn but still legible. There are some minor marks and scratches to the cap and barrel and the gold plating is showing signs of wear. A small crack to the cap lip has been sealed and repaired. The pen is totally original and has been fully serviced.
The nib is a lovely medium Italic which writes beautifully. These are lovely pens and quite scarce in good condition.
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.
