Vintage Pens: Parker Vacumatic Desk Pen
Vintage Pens: 0474 Parker Vacumatic Desk Pen
Fountain Pen Nib Size: Stub
We think you are going to love this Parker Vacumatic desk set. Why hide the best bit? It comes with a stub nib! We restored the pen with a new diaphragm several years ago for our own personal use. It still works great. No cracks, minimal wear. There is no date code on the imprint. However, the nickel-plated cap band has a star! Its 14k gold stub nib is about 1mm wide, and it writes with some feedback. We love it. The section of the pen is the grey pearl design like the rest of the pen. The light green base has a beautiful brown vein. The base has seen wear, with chips in its edges and scratches on its surfaces.All of the felt is missing. The pen is a shade loose in the trumpet and doesn't thread in. Not sure if it is the original base. The pen doesn't leak when it writes, but it does leak a little when sitting in the trumpet. Vintage pen measures 17.2cm. Overseas shipping might be more costly.
