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.

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.
