Vintage Pens: 4083: Parker: Duofold
Oversized lapis blue Parker Duofolds this nice are difficult to find. Only the half-inch or so starting at the threads of the barrel are truly discolored and dark. You can see a lot of blue on both the cap and barrel...though especially on the cap. NO CRACKS! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. There's some brassing on cap bands and the ball of the clip. The pen has a few scars including a little mark on the cap below and to the left of the clip, and what look like plier marks on the barrel. The barrel is marked "Lucky Curve," but the inkfeed has a "Christmas tree" look without the "Lucky Curve" internal piece. Its 14k gold nib writes a surprisingly smooth, firm extra-fine line. Chocolate hazing on the cap topper and blind cap. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4063: Parker: Duofold
One of the most iconic pens for vintage pen collectors is the Parker Duofold in orange...even if people called it "red" back in the day. This junior model from the late 1920s has a "permanite" cap and barrel. You won't find any cracks. It does have a few little marks from wear, but we think it looks pretty amazing for being nearly 100 years old. Minimal brassing, if any. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. Its 14k gold nib is marked Duofold, and it writes a wonderfully firm, wet medium line quite smoothly. It is a thick enough pen that it is still a good pen for most hands, and it makes for a great early foray into vintage collecting and writing for the budding pen collector. This vintage pen even has the vaunted "Christmas Tree" inkfeed! Some chocolate hazing on the cap's topper. 11.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4062: Parker: Duofold
Some days it is hard not to geek out about a junior-size, skinny pen. Our Parker Duofold is one such pen. It has a few of the rarer hallmarks found in the Duofold line. You'll see it is a deep red marbled color, which isn't impossible to find but certainly not the most common. Its imprint is clear, and there is only minimal wear. No cracks or noteworthy scratches. No brassing can be found on the clip or the decidedly rare cap band combination of 3 bands...skinny top and bottom with a thick middle band. Plus, it is a streamlined model. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra-fine line. 11.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4037: Fend: Normatic Walz Gold
We restored this Fend Normatic Walz Gold fountain pen with a new ink sac. It writes delightfully well. Its Warranted 14k gold nib has some flex and write smoothly from medium to 1.25mm wide. You can see some chocolate hazing on the black hard rubber, and a few marks on the rubber as well. The gold plating/fill on the sleeve are great with only a little wear and brassing at the edges. Given its tiny size, we suspect it was a vest-pocket pen. 9.6cm capped.

Will it be the burgundy-marble streamlined design or the rare two-toned nib that creates instant salivation in fans of the original Parker Duofold? Click the headline for close-ups to decide for yourself. This vintage pen is a Junior size set that has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks will be found on either instrument. The pen cap has a couple short deep scratches, but they should not deter most collectors and users. The imprint on the barrel is clear. Still working is the 1.1mm lead pencil that has a classic refill cassette in it with one spare lead and a retro-fitted fresh eraser. The pencil shows wear from use, but it has been a reliable friend of writers for nearly 100 years! The rare two-tone 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback.

Streamlined senior Parker Duofold pens in green that aren't hideously discolored are a treat. Our vintage pen is a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it will be a great writer. On the list for the good Dr. Jekyll, this pen has very nice color with only a ring of discoloration behind the cap threads on the barrel of the pen. Also in Dr. Jekyll's favor is an original price sticker on the streamlined tail blind cap. On 3 lines it reads "107 / Med. / $7.00." Mr. Hyde shows his ugly face when one recognizes the cap has only one of its two cap bands. A couple dozen bite marks also showcase the evils of Mr. Hyde. Buuut, the good Dr. Jekyll returns with the original Christmas tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib that writes an extremely smooth, wet medium line. 13cm capped.

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.
