Vintage Pens: 5372: Parker: Lucky Curve 2 1/2
Parker had mastered button-filling pens long before it came up with the name Duofold. As such, this looks just like a Duofold ringtop fountain pen, but we think it is more accurately called a Parker Lucky Curve 2 1/2. Our vintage pen is in stunningly good condition for possibly being more than 100 years old. There's a light amount of chocolate hazing to its chased black hard rubber cap and barrel. No cracks. Crisp, clean imprints. It was restored with a new ink sac. Mostly the 14k gold Lucky Curve nib writes a smooth fine line, but it does have some semi-flex properties that allow it to reach 1mm. 11.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5309: Parker: Duofold (U.K.)
When most people in the United States think of Parker Duofolds, they think of an entirely different pen. However, this vintage pen was made at a British Parker factory! From either the late 1940s are 1950s, this pen looks a little more like a Vacumatic and retains the button-filler of the original Duofolds of the 1920s. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Our pen is in very good condition overall, though there is a small hairline crack in the lip of the cap. There's also some general wear from use. We actually tuned the nib after we photographed it, and it now writes a smooth, wet medium-broad line. Your computer screen might not quite capture its unusual color that is sorta brick red. 13.3cm capped.

It was a big deal when Parker Duofolds switched from hard rubber to a stronger material called "Permanite." This is a nearly perfect senior-sized permanite cap and barrel—only a little wear from use and where the cap makes a ring as it screws to the barrel. Nice deep, crisp, clean imprint that was slightly darkened to make the perfection more visible. Minimal, if any, brassing on the gold-filled trim. We restored this vintage pen with a new ink sac. Click the headline for a close-up of its 14k gold nib. You will write a smooth, firm fine line that just barely lets you feel the paper beneath your hand. Are you on the close-up, yet? You should see a tiny hairline crack sprouting from the breather hole. We can't see it with the naked eye. There's 10-times magnification on this photo to help show it. Also, the nib has some discoloration we can't buff out on the left side of the nib from the breather hole to the left. Nevertheless, it is a great writer that looks sharp. 14cm capped.

A Duofold or not a Duofold? That is the question. Buuuut, a Duofold by any other name is still a Duofold. Sorry to get so Shakespearian on you as we sort out this classic Parker desk pen. It looks just like a Parker Duofold desk pen, but the imprint doesn't call it a Duofold, only "Geo. S. Parker—PARKER—Made in U.S.A." Either way, it has a beautiful black-and-pearl design with comparatively little discoloration. We restored this pen with a new ink sac. You fill it with a button filler, as with any other Duofold. Click the headline for a close-up. You will write a nice extra-fine line with its 14k gold nib. The barrel and taper have wear from use but no cracks nor any deep scratches. The taper looks a little warped. Its golden taper ring is misshapen. The ring has the potential for falling off while refilling. This vintage pen is more of a junior size width. 18.6cm. Base is missing.

Parker advanced the efficiency and ease of using fountain pens when it created the Lucky Curve inkfeed. This is an early Parker Lucky Curve button filler from the very early 20th century. Click the headline for close-ups of the pen and nib. Notice the pen still has a slip cap and significant chocolate hazing of the black hard rubber (ebonite). We have not attempted to restore this pen. Notice how the threads of the blind cap by the button are missing. We feel that this rare older pen is likely too fragile to properly disassemble and put back together. Its 14k gold nib is a beautiful number 2 size that writes a very smooth medium line with a little flex. It also appears to have an early inkfeed. The pocket clip is an aftermarket clip made by the Rexall pharmacies. Slender and 14.1cm capped.

Almost perfect but not quite. Check out the beautiful pearl-and-black celluloid on this Canadian Parker Duofold Jr. set. You can see some traces of the brown discoloration that got started in this vintage pen, but it isn't nearly as bad as most of these pens that I've seen. The inside of this cap is so clean, we're not sure the pen was ever used. It has been restored with a new ink sac. No cracks, major blemishes or brassing. Light wear if any. Click the headline to see a close-up of the original 14k gold nib. You can barely see it in the photo but there is a hairline crack just to the right or top of the "B" in the photo and it works its way up to the top bar of the "E" in "Pen." You will write a smooth medium line. Its matching pencil has perfect color but much more wear, and it doesn't work.

Lapis Lazuli Parker Duofolds are hard to find in such a vibrant blue condition. Yes, this junior-sized vintage pen is a couple shades darker than the matching pencil, but it is still a nice color. Click the headline for close-ups. The white flecks in the lapis blue pen are only mildly yellowed or browned in some places! The vintage pen has been restored with a new ink sac. You will write a juicy double broad line with its 14k gold nib. There is a Christmas-tree style ink feed. Spots of brassing on the cap bands and clip. Light wear on the cap and barrel. The matching streamlined pencil is not working very well, shows a little wear and brassing...and it is missing a decorative barrel band. Pen measures 11.4cm capped.

Experience the beauty and wonder of a streamlined Parker Duofold Jr. set in jade green. This vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. You can see in the photo that the pen's barrel is more discolored than its cap and that the pencil's green is perfect. There are neither cracks nor significant wear on either writing instrument. The ball on the clip of the pen has a little brassing. You will write a smooth, extra-fine line with a hint of feedback with the original 14k gold nib. Under the nib is a Christmas tree inkfeed. The pencil is in good working order, too.
