Era: 1930-1939
Price: $199.99
Parker sent off their first generation of Duofolds with a few stunning color patterns before retiring the line. This senior size streamlined Parker Duofold sports an incredible green art deco design. The top of the cap and the blind cap are ebonite with some chocolate hazing. That's the worst of the wear on the pen. No cracks, just a couple little dings and light traces of wear. The pen has a fresh ink sac. The tines of the 14k nib have a little separation, and the pen writes a wet broad line with a little hint of a scratch. Better nib experts than us can probably get that gap fixed and shrink the width of the line. 13cm capped.
