Vintage Pens: 3695: Parker: Duofold Toothbrush
Of all the crazy designs on fountain pens, the sheer oddness of the Parker Duofold "Toothbrush" pen makes it one of our favorites. Technically, it is called the Parker Duofold Geometric, but most vintage pen fans simply refer to them as Parker Toothbrushes. We restored this classic toothbrush pen with a new ink sac. It is the largest model in the Toothbrush Duofold line, but it is more of a standard size...not oversized. The green of the cap and barrel has discolored a little with age. It was made in 1939, after all. Click the headline to see a close-up of the original 14k gold nib. It writes a really juicy, wet broad line fairly smoothly with a little flex! 12.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3437: Parker: Duofold
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. No cracks, no brassing. Light wear from use. 13.1cm 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.
