Vintage Pens: 3149 Parker Duofold Slim Junior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $69.99
Vintage Pens: 3149: Parker: Duofold Slim Junior
We are particularly impressed by the color of this Parker Duofold Deluxe Jr. fountain pen in the streamlined motif. We've restored it with a new ink sac, and there no cracks or deep scratches. Maintaining near perfection is its cap, with only small spots of discoloration. The barrel didn't fair as well, but it isn't nearly as bad as many of these same pens. Its imprint is faint but legible. Writing a wet, medium line with a whisper of feedback is its 14k gold nib and Christmas tree inkfeed. Click the headline for close-ups. 11.3cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3162 Parker VP
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $149.99
Vintage Pens: 3162: Parker: VP
Parker VP fountain pens led the way for many new innovations for Parker in the 1960s. Only made for a couple years, these vintage pens introduced the adjustable nib that would be much more famous on the Parker 75, which replaced this pen in the line-up. It also experimented with the converter fill system. Although the pen says you can remove the aerometric-style converter, we highly recommend against it. The clear glass/plastic viewing window at its base is very fragile. Light wear afflicts the pen, but it isn't too bad for a daily user. No dents but the cap might look a little scratched up to some. The 14k gold nib writes a very nice extra-fine line. Its cap closes all the way, but it doesn't take a lot of effort to slip it back off. 13.7cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3161 Parker 51
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949
Price: $125.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3161: Parker: 51
Revolutionizing pens once again, Parker released the Parker 51 to much fanfare stating that the pen was 10 years ahead of its time in 1941! Using the already popular Vacumatic filler, this pen sported a hooded nib that was both stylish and prevented quick dry-outs of the pen if left uncapped. Ours is date coded from the second quarter of 1946. It has been restored with a new diaphragm. Plus, it sports a sterling silver cap with an overlaying arrow pattern in the cap ring. The sterling has some wear but no serious dents. The hood and barrel are free of all but light wear. You can write a wet fine line with its 14k gold nib. A standard grey-plastic pearl jewel sits in the cap. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3160 Parker 51 Demi
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1940-1949

Vintage Pens: 3160: Parker: 51 Demi
Parker stunned the pen world in 1948 by releasing the pen with a new filling system: the aerometric filler. Going from complicated Vacumatic to the simple squeeze bar of the aerometric made the "most advanced" pen of the time even more popular with the people. This is a very early model of the shorter demi from 1949 in the somewhat hard-to-find forest green with a 12k gold filled cap. The original silicon sac is still in good working order on this vintage pen that was made to last. The barrel is nearly perfect with minimal wear, but the bottom of the hood looks like it skidded for half a second on sand paper. The cap is dent-free and with only a scratch and light wear. Its original 14k gold nib writes a smooth fine line. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3147 Parker Parkette
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1930-1939
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 3147: Parker: Parkette
Parker made exceedingly few lever-fillers in its history. That's what makes this simple Parker Parkette stand out all the more. A sub-brand of Parker, Parkette was still closely affiliated with its parent company. What makes this pen even rarer is that it was made in Canada. You can read it on the barrel and on the nib, which you can see when you click the headline...at least the nib. Defined by black and grey marble look accented by subtle red veins, we have fully restored this vintage pen with a fresh ink sac. Light wear on the cap and barrels, minimal brassing. Its original 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine line with a hint of feedback. (American extra fine, not Japanese.) The matching pencil does not seem to be working. Pen measures 12cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3138 Parker Duofold Senior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3138: Parker: Duofold Senior
It's not easy being green, but this oversized senior Parker Duofold makes it look pretty easy. Our vintage pen's cap is nearly perfect for color and no cracks. You will see the barrel is darker in real life by 3 or 4 shades. Still, compared to most green Duofolds of the 1920s, this one is pretty impressive. We restored the pen with a fresh ink sac. Click the headline to see the original 14k gold nib close up. In our right hands it writes a very smooth, wet medium line. Yet, the close-up will reveal that the top tine slopes up to a slightly higher bottom tine. It can look a little oblique, but the pen writes normally in our right hand. None of us is left handed, so we aren't sure how that side works. It has a "Christmas Tree" inkfeed. Some brassing on the pocket clip. 14cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3137 Parker Duofold Senior
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 3137: Parker: Duofold Senior
We have never seen a Parker Duofold Senior in jade celluloid this close to perfect! If you look closely, you can see three faint browning rings in the cap, but the cap still looks fairly impressive. NO CRACKS! Heavy brassing can be found on the cap ring, with additional brassing at the top and bottom of the clip. In an effort to prevent further discoloration we have not added a new ink sac. Yet, if you want this as a daily writer, we can put that ink sac in for you. The spring is properly engaged to the button in the tail. Click the headline for a close-up of the nib. The 14k gold nib and feed are the correct replacement parts designed for Parker Duofolds, which are fairly common to find in Duofolds that had a lifetime warranty. It writes a smooth fine line. 13.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 3117 Parker 21
Filling Mechanism: Aerometric Filler
Era: 1950-1959
Price: $45.00
SOLD!
Vintage Pens: 3117: Parker: 21
Don't be intimidated by vintage pens. If you haven't tried them before, the Parker 21 is a great entry point. Little brother to the more famous Parker 51, it was the bargain discount version with a steel nib. However it shared the hooded nib design that helped slow ink evaporation. It also sports an aerometric ink-filler that is in great original condition. The nice rarer feature of the pen is that the cap is marked: "1/30 12K R.G.P." The cap and pen have light wear from use but no cracks or other egregious flaws. The nib writes a surprisingly smooth fine line. 13.2cm capped.
