Vintage Pens: 4813: Parker: Duofold
Senior-sized Parker Duofolds with a wide cap band, such as this one, don't come along every day. In fact, they might only come along once or twice a lifetime, if you're lucky. We have one such beauty right here, and it has no cracks under the cap band. It is gorgeous with a deep Lucky Curve imprint, too! Fully restored with a new ink sac, its only flaw appears to be a thin sliver of brassing on the cap band. Click the headline for a close-up. This is a permanite model not the red hard rubber. Still, it is a great treat. There's a "Christmas tree" inkfeed and a 14k gold nib. You'll write a very nice medium line. Fairly crisp milling on the end caps, too! 13.9cm capped.

Streamlined Parker Duofolds were a fun update to the original look of the classic vintage pen. We restored this pen with a new ink sac and think it is a real beauty. No cracks, dents or scratches. Somebody loved this pen. If you look extra carefully at the pen in the right light, you can make out the faintest hint that a name had once been engraved on the barrel. However, it is almost impossible to see on a cursory glance. The regular imprint is a little weak in its center. Click the headline for a close-up. It is possible the blind cap in the tail is a micron or two smaller than the barrel. You can just barely feel the difference. It has the original "Christmas tree" inkfeed and 14k gold nib. You will write an extra-fine line with a little feedback, as most extra-fines do. Senior sized. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4689: Parker: Duofold
This old workhorse of a vintage pen is looking for a new home to put it to work. On the surface, this discolored jade Parker Duofold senior looks a little worse for wear, especially when you see a little of the barrel threads missing on close inspection...and two combs off its inkfeed...and heavy brassing on the trim. (Click the headline for close-ups.) Yet, we restored this classic with a new ink sac, and it is rarin' to go. It writes a smooth broad line with its 14k gold original nib. Clearly, somebody once loved this pen and wrote everything with it. It isn't much of a museum piece, but it still wants to be a daily driver in your stable. 13.8cm capped.

Marriage is what bwings us togethah today. Our photo unintentionally hides the fact this senior Parker Duofold Big Red is really a married cap and barrel. In real life, it is obvious that the cap is the rarer, harder to find original hard-rubber cap and the barrel is "Permanite." As is the senior pencil. Nevertheless, we restored the pen with a new ink sac to good working order. No cracks, but some substantial brassing on the cap band. Light wear from use on the rest of the pen. Its inkfeed is an original "Christmas tree" feed. Its 14k gold nib writes a fine to medium line with a little feedback, depending at the angle you hold your pen as you write. We find the pencil is in good, unrestored working order. It has some brassing or discoloration on the nose cone and rear trim. Its permanite barrel shows more wear than the pen. Comes with 1 1.1mm lead and a mostly broken and hardened eraser in the tail.

So close to perfection, it is painful. Tragically, this otherwise mint condition Parker Duofold senior fountain pen made of orange hard rubber, has a triangle shaped hole in its side where the rubber blew apart. We super-glued Humpty Dumpty back together, and it looks like a museum piece with the cap closed. Such sharp, crisp milling on the cap and tail ends! No brassing. An original "Christmas tree" inkfeed. An original box! We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Its 14k gold original nib writes a smooth fine line. Everything works great. Too bad about the side of the barrel. Its button filler is also pretty chewed up, BUT we think it is solid 14k gold! Click the headline for close-ups. 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4458: Parker: Duofold Jr. Desk Pen
Mandarin yellow Parker Duofolds are highly sought and beautiful working artifacts of the Roaring '20s. This Parker Duofold Jr. Desk Pen is particularly special because it has a much harder to find 14k gold "Lucky Curve" nib! Click the headline for a close-up. You'll write a very nice medium line. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Plus, it sports a "Christmas Tree" inkfeed. We do not have a desk base for you. It seems as if people either have the base or the pen but not both. Now you can finally complete your set. There is a little chocolate hazing on the section but not the taper. Unfortunately, the taper has some wear. The barrel is mostly clear. 18.2cm.

Lapis blue Parker Duofolds are our favorite color variants on the famed vintage pen. We restored this classic Parker Duofold with a new ink sac and new pressure bar assembly. Its cap has a little better color than the barrel. Both are a bit darker than when new, but neither is fully discolored, either. The most discoloration is by the cap threads on the barrel. No cracks. About 30% brassing on the cap band, plus a little on the ball of the clip. You'll find light wear on the cap and barrel, but the pen is in remarkable condition for being more than 90 years old. Cosmetically, for some, its biggest turn off might be "Asa L. Child" engraved on both the cap and barrel. Click the headline for a clear look at the imprint. Marked "Lucky Curve," the inkfeed is a 1930s Vacumatic-style replacement. Its 14k gold Duofold nib writes a fine-medium line with a touch of feedback. 13.9cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 4107: Parker: Lucky Curve
There's so much to love about this Parker Lucky Curve...and so much to be disappointed by. On the one hand, this vintage pen has an excellent cap and barrel with no cracks and sharp pinstripe chasing as well as a clean imprint. But the cap band has a lot of brassing on the bottom edge. We'ver restored it with a new ink sac. It has its original intact Lucky Curve feed AND an original Parker Lucky Curve P3X nib! Click the headline to see a close-up. That image is magnified close to 10 times its original size, but it still doesn't show the huge hairline crack sprouting out through the 3 and drifting to the right of the breather hole. You can almost see a little crack leading toward the section from the breather hole. This rarer vintage nib of 14k gold writes a smooth fine line, and in its younger days had reliable flex...but now if you try to flex it, you might split the nib in two. Be very careful if you chose to write with it. 11.8cm capped.
