Vintage Pens: 3053: Osmia: 223 F
Osmia was a highly respected pen manufacturer in German for the better part of the first half of the 20th century. It was temporarily purchased by Parker in the late 1920s but soon shed from the Parker company's holdings...but not before it acquired most of Parker's technology and designs. We suspect this Osmia 223F was from the 1930s, as it features a Parker-style button filler that has been fully restored. However, it can be from the 1940s, when the factory resumed production after the war with its earlier designs. 14k gold nibs with better tipping material than most companies used are what Osmia was best known for. Its nib on this pen writes an extra-fine line with a little flex and a hint of feedback. Slender, light wear. There's an impression around about 1/4 of the cap where the clip rubbed as it got loose over the years. Clip on firmly now. No cracks. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2237: Parker: Lucky Curve
Just ahead of the Duofold came the Parker Lucky Curve. The "Lucky Curve" referred to the inkfeed that was supposedly more efficient due to a curve on the piece inside the pen that would help funnel the last drops of ink to the nib. It was a cool gimmick that didn't really work any better than any other inkfeed, but it was in the Parker advertising for close to a decade. Jade celluloid is highly discolored with lots of brassing on the trim, but this pen features a really hard-to-find extra-fine "Lucky Curve" nib. Click the headline to see it close up. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Unfortunately, it doesn't have its original inkfeed. The strong imprint simply says "Parker" in an early font with the usual boiler plate info. No "Duofold" or "Lucky Curve." The cap has two hairline cracks in the lip. The end caps have some edges missing. It is a junior size pen, but the nib alone is worth the price. 11.4cm 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.

Vintage Pens: 1298: Parker: Duofold
BLUE ON BLUE! It is the rarest of the color patterns for the Parker Duofold line, as it was only made between 1929 and 1930. Our Parker Lady Duofold is even rarer as it has a wide gold cap band! It has a little brassing, but it is in good overall condition...if you don't mind G.P. Hall engraved on it in beautiful script letters. Click the headline font for a better look. We overlit the blue-on-blue just so you could better see its consistency on the cap and barrel. The vintage pen is fully restored to working order. There are a few drawbacks: chocolate hazing on the cap top, hazing and heavy scarring on the section from a previous repairman, brassing on the ball of the clip and a scarred button. There are no cracks. The original Christmas Tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a buttery smooth fine line with a little FLEX! 11.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0034: Parker: Duofold
We think this is quite possibly one of the prototypes for the Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen made c. 1925 or '26. We cannot guarantee it, but the aluminum swivel holder is the main clue, as Parker never mass produced it. It is not marked, and it was most likely custom machined. The hard rubber version of it went into production in 1926. The hard-rubber Parker Duofold Jr. desk pen is in great condition. The imprint is practically perfect, except for fading out on the very far right side. The ink feed is a "Christmas Tree." The 14k nib writes a fine-medium line. The tail is in perfect condition, and there is no brassing on its gold ring. The gold button shows no brassing. The pen base has no chips or cracks that we can see. The felt on the bottom was replaced. The pen holder is a chocolatey brown but in good working order. The spring underneath it still pushes back. This pen has been fully restored and works wonderfully. The pen measures 19cm, and the base measures 15cm X 9cm X 2cm.
