Vintage Pens: 3872: Parker: Duofold
Streamlined senior Parker Duofold pens in green that isn'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.

Rare squared is what we are calling this mandarin yellow Parker Duofold desk pen with the carved fish base! Mandarin yellow Parker Duofolds are the most sought-after color because they are A.) handsome and B.) much rarer as the yellow material cracked and broke easily over the years. After nearly 100 years, the surviving yellow pens tend to be troupers, but they are difficult to find. Plus, this wooden, carved desk base wasn't exactly common. The vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. You'll see it has both its original Christmas tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib that writes a very firm, wet extra-fine line. Some folks might say it has feedback, but you're really just feeling the paper under the nib. The pen and taper have wear from age and use, but there are no cracks or engravings. A very handsome set. 18.5cm pen from nib tip to tip of taper.

Streamlined senior Parker Duofolds are in demand these days. There were fewer of them, and jade green ones that haven't totally discolored up the rareness ante. Not only does this one look good, it has been fully restored with a new ink sac. It sports both an original 14k gold nib AND a "Christmas Tree"/"Spear" inkfeed. The section is friction fit, not like the more prevalent screw-in versions. Click the headline for close-ups. You can even read the barrel imprint. The barrel is darker than the cap, which isn't evenly discolored. However, you can still very nice green, as this seems to be a later model. Its nib writes a sensuously smooth, wet medium line.

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.
