Vintage Pens: 3975: Parker: Duofold
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.
Vintage Pens: 3972 Parker 51 Set
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 3972: Parker: 51 Set
Black plastic jewels on the top of the Parker 51 Demi set made us think it is on the younger side of the 30-year run these pens enjoyed. However, the matching Liquid Lead pencil seems to push it back a few years. We aren't quite sure. We are impressed though that the vintage pen has a factory-fresh new, uninked "pli-glass" (silicone) bladder, and the pencil has a STILL-WORKING Liquid Lead refill. It is impossible to know how much longer it will write, but it is amazing to give a scribble. The set has light wear and a scuff or two, but otherwise it is very clean looking set in a maroon/burgundy. You will write a fine line with the steel nib. It is not marked as a "Special," but it has that nib. The pen measures 12.9cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3961 Parker Duofold Centennial
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $399.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3961: Parker: Duofold Centennial
Lighting is challenging when trying to capture fluidity of the pearlescense of the cap and barrel, but we think we nailed it. Click the headline for a close-up that really captures the beauty of this more oversized modern Parker Duofold Centennial fountain pen. Aside from a thin line of scuffing around the main cap band, this pen looks barely used. Fans of the pearl and black models know that some lean more white and others lean a shade more yellow. This preowned luxury pen is the latter. It comes complete with its gray-felt-covered box and larger cardboard outer box. The felt box is in mint condition, but it looks as if the outer box was damaged by humidity. You'll write a nice medium line with the two-tone 18k gold nib. The pen's date code is for 1993, and there's a chrysanthemum/spiralgraph design on the cap's top metal plate. 13.6cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3920 Parker 45
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1960-1979   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $49.99
Vintage Pens: 3920: Parker: 45
Parker 45s seemed to be Parker's last basic fountain pen intended for mass consumption by the public at large. Affordable, modern and reliable, these were a great daily driver in the 1960s. What makes our vintage pen special is that it has one of the 14k gold nibs that were not as common on these pens. This one is marked "F" for fine and we find that it writes a smooth line that is closer to medium for most people. A neat bonus is that it has a working original converter with a aerometric-style filler. Even better news is that these pens take modern Parker converters and cartridges with the rubber gives out in the early converters. Only minor wear. No dents or cracks. 13.6cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 3570 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $1,499.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 3570: Parker: Duofold
As far as we're concerned, Parker Duofold Espartos are the holy grail of modern luxury pens for Parker lovers. Only fitting that it pays tribute to Spanish papermaking, and the fiber patterns therein, our Parker Duofold Esparto ballpoint pen is made from solid sterling silver. Parker didn't scrimp on the silver, either. Ours is new in the box. It does not appear to have done any writing. Click the headline for close-ups. Its lacquered wooden presentation box looks grey in some lights, and green in others. There is an outer cardboard box for the wooden box. You will see the pen has a working blue Parker refill inside it. Under the pad is the paperwork and another refill.
Vintage Pens: 3887 Parker 51 Demi Set
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $125.00
Vintage Pens: 3887: Parker: 51 Demi Set
Parker 51 Demi models were only made for a short while, and we are lucky enough to present one that was barely used if ever. The pencil looks spotless, and the fountain pen, though restored with a new diaphragm, has only some wear on the hood where the cap snugs and a few light scratches in the almost otherwise flawless lustraloy cap. The pencil is loaded with spare leads and a hardened eraser. You advance the lead smoothly with a twist of the tail. The vintage pen's 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. There is a first quarter 1948 date code clearly imprinted on the barrel. The vast majority of the flaws are with the original Parker 51 box. There's staining on the inside and heavy wear on the outside, which only proves the box did its job protecting the instruments inside it.
Vintage Pens: 3883 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3883: Parker: Duofold
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.
Vintage Pens: 3882 Parker 51 Flighter Set
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $299.99
Vintage Pens: 3882: Parker: 51 Flighter Set
Let your writing take flight with this brushed stainless steel Parker 51 Flighter set. Another of the more-coveted variants of the Parker 51 line, this vintage pen set is a fountain pen and pencil set. You won't find any dents or egregious wear. It has light scratches from use, but at writing distance these classic writing instruments look great. Fill the fountain pen with an aerometric filling system that is in great working order. The matching pencil is an early click model using .9mm leads. Click the tail cap to advance the lead. It includes its original hardened eraser and spare leads. The pen's original 14k gold nib writes a dry, fine line.
