Vintage Pens: 3103: Parker: Duofold
In the late, late 1920s and early, early 1930s, Parker began experimenting a little more with the color of its flagship Duofold pens. Our streamlined Parker Duofold has the lovely burgundy-and-black marbled design. The barrel imprint is strong and clear. You won't read the word "Junior" on it, but the length seems closer to a junior size. It has a couple scratches and wear marks, but it is in overall good cosmetic condition. No cracks! Brassing is only found on the bottom cap band and the ball of the pocket clip. The original Christmas tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a dry extra-fine to fine line. Fully restored with a new ink sac. 11.9cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2850: Krone: Panther
Slinking through the urban jungle, the elusive Krone Panther is one smooth luxury pen as it pounces on the pages of your life. We love the retro button-filling system on this pre-owned pen. The original ink sac is good and held water when we flushed the system, which didn't seem to have much previous ink in it. There is almost no wear on the cap or barrel. We polished up the silver trim that offers such nice contrast to the all black pen. The two-tone 14k gold nib writes a delightfully smooth, wet medium line. Thickness in the section makes the pen easier to grip for long periods of writing without cramping. 12.6cm 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.

Who says you can't capture sunshine for use all year 'round. The Bexley 5th Anniversary fountain pen seems to trap the sun's rays to bright your day.

It's a happenin' pen that looks and feels great as you write. Numbered 057 of only 100! 14.1cm 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: 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.
