Vintage Pens: 1485 Parker Maxima (English)
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $149.99
English Parkers of the late 1940s and early 1950s really seemed to take the best of American Parkers and incorporate it into its designs. This Parker Maxima is a full size pen with a nice wide grip, which makes for easier writing with less cramping. It has an American Parker Vacumatic shape, but with more modern plastics and an aerometric filler such as a Parker 51. This vintage pen is in great condition with only light surface wear and a handsome green color that is a little lighter than a traditional British racing green. The original 14k gold nib writes a fine-medium line. It is a little inconsistent switching between fine and medium. 14.3cm capped.
