The new range of Parker Duofolds was introduced in 1988 as part of the celebrations of Parkers 100th Anniversary. They are a top quality pen and retailed at the high end of the market. The Duofold Mini was introduced in the early 2000's as a lighter more convenient alternative to the larger International and Centennial.
This pen is the International Mini, about 15mm shorter than the standard International (See comparison photograph). It is finished in the desirable Black and Green Mosaic with Palladium trim.
It is fitted with an 18ct gold Broad nib. The feed is marked F for a fine nib but it has been changed since the pen was bought. The nib is exactly the same size as the one fitted to a standard International pen.
The pen is in excellent condition throughout with only very minor marks. The pen uses the International Mini cartridges, a full box will be supplied with the pen.
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.
