Vintage Pens: 3441: Parker: Duofold
Unless there were a few Parker Lady Duofolds made with a pocket clip, it is quite possible this classic mandarin yellow model is a married pair. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. There's no hiding the crack in the lip of the cap, but you can see it even better when you click the headline. All the same, it seems very stable, as long as you don't post the cap on the tail. Mandarin yellow Parker Duofolds are the rarest of the mainline production pens because many got unexpectedly brittle with age. Often crumbling into pieces. However, pens that made it this far, seem to be pretty stable, and this one appears to be, too. It has some wear, in addition to the crack, but it also has an original "Christmas tree" inkfeed. Its original 14k gold nib writes a nice, firm XF to fine line with a little feedback that isn't particularly disruptive. 11.5cm 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: 3364: Parker: Duofold Senior
Parker Duofolds are the ultimate capstone to any vintage pen collection. For many, these were the pens that got them started on antique pens. Back in the 1920s, these were the most popular status symbol pens that were also extremely functional and hard working. A flashy tool in jade green, it was never the less the ultimate tool for writers and business people. Our senior sized Parker Duofold is fully restored with a new ink sac. It sports a rarer raised cap band. Unfortunately it has some obvious brassing, like the clip ball. No cracks mar the pen, even if it is somewhat discolored. It features a rare original "Christmas tree" inkfeed. Its large, original 14k gold "Lucky Curve" nib writes a smooth, firm medium line. Great for heavier handed writers, as the nib requires a little pressure to perform. Barrel imprint is strong but mentions nothing about "Duofold" or "Lucky Curve." 13.8cm 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.
