Lapis Lazuli Parker Duofold Senior pens are an oversized grail pen for many, and we have one in stunning condition. Click the headline for close-ups. First it sports an original 14k gold Parker Duofold nib that writes an extra-fine line with a touch of flex to get more expressive line variation. Under the nib is a great original "Christmas tree" or "spear" inkfeed. We restored the pen with a new ink sac, but the news gets even better. No cracks, crisp imprint, minimal chocolate hazing and very little wear. The barrel is discolored, but the cap looks great, except for its only real flaw, which is a ring imprinted around the entire cap, caused by the brassing ball of the barrel rubbing around the pen as it must have come loose at somepoint. 13.8cm capped.

Will it be the burgundy-marble streamlined design or the rare two-toned nib that creates instant salivation in fans of the original Parker Duofold? Click the headline for close-ups to decide for yourself. This vintage pen is a Junior size set that has been fully restored with a new ink sac. No cracks will be found on either instrument. The pen cap has a couple short deep scratches, but they should not deter most collectors and users. The imprint on the barrel is clear. Still working is the 1.1mm lead pencil that has a classic refill cassette in it with one spare lead and a retro-fitted fresh eraser. The pencil shows wear from use, but it has been a reliable friend of writers for nearly 100 years! The rare two-tone 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a little feedback.

Streamlined senior Parker Duofold pens in green that aren't hideously discolored are a treat. Our vintage pen is a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde pen. Fully restored with a new ink sac, it will be a great writer. On the list for the good Dr. Jekyll, this pen has very nice color with only a ring of discoloration behind the cap threads on the barrel of the pen. Also in Dr. Jekyll's favor is an original price sticker on the streamlined tail blind cap. On 3 lines it reads "107 / Med. / $7.00." Mr. Hyde shows his ugly face when one recognizes the cap has only one of its two cap bands. A couple dozen bite marks also showcase the evils of Mr. Hyde. Buuut, the good Dr. Jekyll returns with the original Christmas tree inkfeed and 14k gold nib that writes an extremely smooth, wet medium line. 13cm capped.

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.
