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: 1486: Parker: Maxima
Experience the alternative universe of the Parker Pen Company with this English Parker Maxima. A substantial full-size pen, it combines elements of the American-made Parker VS, Vacumatic and 51. This vintage pen has some brassing on the cap band and wear on the cap and barrel. The imprint is worn off, but there are NO cracks. The aerometric filler is still in good working order. Click the headline font to see close ups of the pen and nib. The nib is an original 14k gold. It has a bit of a crimp that was straightened. It writes a surprisingly nice line. 14.2cm capped.

Era: 1950-1959
Price: $149.99
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.

Round out your collection with a matching Parker 51 pencil. This grey pen has a gold-filled cap decorated with pinstripes. The cap is in great-but-not-perfect shape. No dents. The barrel has a few little scuffs and traces of wear. The nose cone has some brassing. The lead extends with a twist of the cap, but it won't retract unless you push it back in with your finger. Grey pearl jewel. 13cm.

Vintage Pens: 1261: Parker: 51 Set
Here's a pretty pair of Parker 51s. The rarer cordovan brown really stands out on this vintage pen set with gold-filled caps. The pencil is in near-mint condition. There are no scratches, dents or dings in the cap or barrel. The cap twists easily to extend and retract the lead. The fountain pen has a working diaphragm that was replaced within the past year or so. No imprint on the barrel. The hood and barrel show little ridges where the cap has rested closed. Otherwise there is minimal wear and tear. There is a little dent under where the clip must have snapped into place after multiple shirt pocket removals. Aside from a couple tiny marks, the rest of the cap is clean of indentations. There is some heavy brassing at the base of the back of the cap. The pattern on the cap is straight lines with a blank window for some initials. The 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to fine line. 13.5cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 1460 Parker 75
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 1460: Parker: 75
Parker 75 fountain pens were basically the last luxury mainline writing instruments for the company of the vintage pen era. The company couldn't have gone out on a classier note. This sterling silver model has no dents or significant scratches. The golden trim is worn off a little on the arrow feathers of the clip and on the stacked "dishes" of the end caps. Each end cap is a golden rim with a silver dish center variety. The section has a steel collar with hash marks that help the user to better align and adjust the nib to fit their hand. The original 14k gold nib is marked "M" on the inkfeed, but it writes a smooth FINE. The cap secures to section well enough, but it isn't the tightest fit. Be careful with it in a pocket or brief case. It does not include a converter, but a modern Parker converter still fits. 12.8cm capped.
