Vintage Pens: 2246: Parker: Challenger
To get through the Great Depression, Parker designed a beautiful pen that used its older, cheaper button-filling technology to provide affordable pens to a desperate nation. This pen is known as the Parker Challenger. The version above seems to carry a 1940 date code and is made from an exquisite red-marble celluloid. It shows some moderate wear and brassing, but it is still a very attractive pen. We restored it with a new ink sac and hanging pressure bar system. No cracks. A couple deeper scars on the blind cap, and the see-through section is heavily darkened with age. The original 14k gold nib writes a wet fine line that some Japanese-nib lovers might call medium. It has a little FLEX, and it sings a bit as it writes. Smooth. 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2244: Parker: Streamlined Duofold
Click it! Click it! Click the headline to look first and foremost at the RARE two-tone 14k Parker Duofold nib! Bigger than a traditional Duofold Jr. and shorter than a traditional Duofold Senior, we aren't sure what its official classification is. Still, it is a fully restored vintage pen that looks great. The deep cranberry and black marbling looks like a freshly licked lollipop. It shines through its light wear. The clip has a little brassing. The most egregious flaw is a bit of an impression where the cap snugged up to the barrel while properly screwed on. The nib writes a very firm but smooth fine line. 11.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1032 Penol Ambassador Deluxe
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $144.99
Vintage Pens: 1032: Penol: Ambassador Deluxe
Penol was created by Christian Olsen who helped develop Parker pens in Denmark. This Penol Ambassador Senior was the largest of the line, which was sold during the 1940s. It uses a button-filler just like the Duofold. You can see a strong Penol imprint on the barrel, but the "Ambassador" is a bit faded. Light wear adds character to the pen, but there are no chips, cracks or dents. We polished up the cap bands, but there is heavy brassing, with more on the slightly loose clip. The jewel is a little off kilter, but the blue ring of enamel surrounding it is still intact. We are selling this pen for a friend and aren't sure when it was last sac'ed, but it fills easily without any problems. The original Penol Deluxe nib writes a smooth fine line. If you click the headline you can see it isn't marked as gold, and the stamped areas seem to show steel...which isn't surprising given these pens were first made during Nazi occupation. A unique piece for your collection. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1635: Parker: Duofold Junior
Parker Duofolds are iconic vintage pens that, in many ways, really got people addicted to pens. This is the streamlined junior size jade-green model. The cap remains a beautiful green, but the barrel is heavily discolored. The cap has no cracks, but the gold trim has heavy brassing. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The 14k gold nib is a 1940s Vacumatic replacement, as is the inkfeed. The nib writes a fine line with a little feedback at some angles. 11.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1184: Parker: Duofold
The yin and yang of this pen is its rare wide-band cap and fine original nib with a little flex juxtaposed against some serious scratching around the tail of the barrel and corrosion of some kind on the tassie. The pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. It has a great barrel imprint. Some wear from daily use many decades ago. A little brassing around the base of the cap band. Click the headline font for bigger close ups. 11.5cm capped, not counting the tassie ring.

Vintage Pens: 1109: Parker: Duofold
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.

Vintage Pens: 1484: Parker: Duofold (English)
Milk chocolate looks quite tasty on this English-made Parker Duofold! Definitely a rarer color, we are pleased to offer it in a full-restored button-filling fountain pen. The golden trim is nearly perfect, but the plastic of the cap and barrel have some wear. There is an inch-long scratch near the tail, just over and to the right of the strong Duofold imprint. (Click the headline, and maybe you can see it in the enlarged photos.) No cracks. The original 14k gold nib looks like it might be an oblique angle. It writes a bold, wet line, with only a hint of feedback at the peaks and valleys of the ascenders and descenders. The cap and tail jewels are the same milk chocolate color! This vintage pen looks very similar to a Parker Duofold major with a slightly wider body. 13.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1273: Parker: Duofold
Relive the decadence of wealthy folks in the early 1930s with style, by writing with this incredible red marbled streamline Senior Parker Duofold. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it is great for use or collecting. The pen clearly has some scratches, brassing and wear from years of loyal use, but it also has white in the imprint! The blind cap is hard rubber and possibly a replacement, as the cap's top appears to be made of Parker's early plastics. It has a monster 14k gold Duofold nib and a Vacumatic inkfeed. The nib writes a firm fine line. 13cm capped.
