This is a very nice example of the Parker Vacumatic. It was made in the USA around 1937.
The pen is in very good condition throughout with only minor marks and scratches commensurate with light use. The gold plating to the clip and cap rings is in good condition with only very minor wear at the extremities.
The imprint on the barrel is worn but still legible.
The pen uses the earlier Lockdown filling mechanism, the locking action works perfectly and the pen has been fully serviced and a new diaphragm has been fitted. The pen is in full working order.
The 14ct gold nib is a lovely Fine, it is original to the pen and is in excellent condition. It writes very nicely.
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.
