Vintage Pens: Parker Maxima (English)
Vintage Pens: 1485 Parker Maxima (English)
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.
