The Parker 17 was introduced in the UK in 1962, two pens were available, the 17 Duofold with a thin cap ring and the 17 Super Duofold with a deep cap ring. The 17 Lady was introduced in 1964.
This particular pen is an excellent example of the Parker 17 Duofold. A small number of these were produced with an open 'Beaked' Nib rather than the conventional hooded nib. This is one of these and they are quite rare. It is finished in the rarest colour, Green, with gold filled trim to the clip and deep cap ring. The open nib is a smooth medium.
The pen is in near mint condition and has been fully serviced.
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.
