Vintage Pens: 3701: Parker: Duofold
Parker Duofolds made such a splash in the 1920s because of their vibrant colors. Our jade green Parker Duofold Senior is fully restored, complete with several rare features. In spite of a little brassing on the cap band, it is a harder to find raised cap band!. You'll find a "Christmas tree" or "spear point" inkfeed under the 14k gold nib, which is also highly desired. ANNNNND, click the headline to see the close up of the rare "Lucky Curve" nib. It writes a firm extra-fine to fine line. It might have a little feedback, but it isn't bad. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it hasn't many flaws. No cracks. Only the discoloration that is clear in the photo. 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3702: Parker: Duofold Jr.
Every jazz daddy in the 1920s needed cutting-edge pen set in orange, and this Parker Duofold Jr fountain pen in "red" hard rubber was the trend setter of the Roaring '20s. Fully restored with new ink sac, this vintage pen is nearly 100 years old with all of its original parts, including the classic "Christmas tree" inkfeed. Click the headline for close-ups. The cap is free of cracks, and it has the slightly raised cap band! The imprint is strong and crisp. The original 14k gold nib writes firm, smooth, juicy medium line. The only flaw on the pen is a teeny hairline crack from the breather down to the word "Duofold." The pencil is a slightly younger model Junior made from "permanite." It still works and comes with a 1.1mm lead, hardened old eraser and several back-up leads. The tail cap doesn't go 100% down but 98% isn't too bad.

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.
