Vintage Pens: 2657: Parker: Duofold
Long before the Blackberry and then the iPhone, there was the Parker Duofold "Big Red" fountain pen. The status symbol of its day, this vintage pen was the cat's meow in the Roaring Twenties. A symbol of bold progress and success, no businessman would be seen without one. Now we have a beautifully restored one from around 1928 in its oversized "Senior" model. It has a fresh ink sac, and it is ready for a new generation to use it. This is the early "permanite" material in orange/"Big Red." Aside from a hairline crack from the lip of the cap under the first cap band, there are very few other blemishes on the pen. You'll find some brassing on the clip and cap bands. It sports its original 14k gold nib, but the inkfeed is a later Vacumatic Maxima model. The nib writes a very nice firm fine line, although modern pen users might say it was more of a fine-medium. 13.9cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2435: Bexley: 5th Anniversary
Who says you can't capture sunshine for use all year 'round. The Bexley 5th Anniversary fountain pen seems to trap the sun's rays to bright your day. Just turn it under a light to see great undulating flares radiating outward. It features a working Duofold-style button filler. The 14k gold nib writes a nice fine line. It's a happenin' pen that looks and feels great as you write. Numbered 057 of only 100! 14.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2237: Parker: Lucky Curve
Just ahead of the Duofold came the Parker Lucky Curve. The "Lucky Curve" referred to the inkfeed that was supposedly more efficient due to a curve on the piece inside the pen that would help funnel the last drops of ink to the nib. It was a cool gimmick that didn't really work any better than any other inkfeed, but it was in the Parker advertising for close to a decade. Jade celluloid is highly discolored with lots of brassing on the trim, but this pen features a really hard-to-find extra-fine "Lucky Curve" nib. Click the headline to see it close up. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. Unfortunately, it doesn't have its original inkfeed. The strong imprint simply says "Parker" in an early font with the usual boiler plate info. No "Duofold" or "Lucky Curve." The cap has two hairline cracks in the lip. The end caps have some edges missing. It is a junior size pen, but the nib alone is worth the price. 11.4cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 2272: Parker: Challenger
It's A-Liiiive! It's A-Liiiive! We found a Parker Challenger made of what appear to be many Parker Challenger parts. It is complete except for a cap band, all the same, it is a great daily user that is just cosmetically flawed. We installed a new ink sac and pressure bar assembly. Sure there are scratches, discoloration and heavy brassing on the clip. Did we say this was perfect and beautiful? Well, it is on the inside, which is what counts. The original 14k gold "Parker Pen" nib appears to have a backward capitol "J" replacing the "U" in "Made in U.S.A." Click the headline to see. It writes an extra-fine to fine line. 13.1cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1109: Parker: Duofold
Parker sent off their first generation of Duofolds with a few stunning color patterns before retiring the line. This senior size streamlined Parker Duofold sports an incredible green art deco design. The top of the cap and the blind cap are ebonite with some chocolate hazing. That's the worst of the wear on the pen. No cracks, just a couple little dings and light traces of wear. The pen has a fresh ink sac. The tines of the 14k nib have a little separation, and the pen writes a wet broad line with a little hint of a scratch. Better nib experts than us can probably get that gap fixed and shrink the width of the line. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1273: Parker: Duofold
Relive the decadence of wealthy folks in the early 1930s with style, by writing with this incredible red marbled streamline Senior Parker Duofold. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it is great for use or collecting. The pen clearly has some scratches, brassing and wear from years of loyal use, but it also has white in the imprint! The blind cap is hard rubber and possibly a replacement, as the cap's top appears to be made of Parker's early plastics. It has a monster 14k gold Duofold nib and a Vacumatic inkfeed. The nib writes a firm fine line. 13cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 1298: Parker: Duofold
BLUE ON BLUE! It is the rarest of the color patterns for the Parker Duofold line, as it was only made between 1929 and 1930. Our Parker Lady Duofold is even rarer as it has a wide gold cap band! It has a little brassing, but it is in good overall condition...if you don't mind G.P. Hall engraved on it in beautiful script letters. Click the headline font for a better look. We overlit the blue-on-blue just so you could better see its consistency on the cap and barrel. The vintage pen is fully restored to working order. There are a few drawbacks: chocolate hazing on the cap top, hazing and heavy scarring on the section from a previous repairman, brassing on the ball of the clip and a scarred button. There are no cracks. The original Christmas Tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a buttery smooth fine line with a little FLEX! 11.3cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 0491: Parker: Duofold
Gleaming as if it were the 1920s, a vintage jade Parker Duofold jr. stands ready to write some more. It can't help being discolored, but the cap still maintains some of its green purity. The streamlined end and top caps have been polished to a shiny ebony. The cap bands are free of brassing, and the clip also shines with only minimal brassing on the ball. There is only light wear from daily use...no cracks, deep scratches or other significant blemishes. The imprint is strong. The pen comes with a buttery smooth original 14k gold nib and original Christmas tree inkfeed. The fountain pen is fully restored with a fresh ink sac. Even the golden tail button filler has been polished. The only other minor flaw is the section (grip) is a shade loose. It is in securely, but has a fraction of a millimeter of play that shouldn't even effect writing. 12cm capped.
