So you've been holding on to a Parker Duofold desk base waiting for the right desk pen to come along. Well, today's your lucky day! Here is the Parker Duofold Jr in the rare, sought-after mandarin yellow. Better yet, it has "Lucky Curve" written in the banner, AND an original Lucky Curve inkfeed still intact in the pen! We restored this pen with a new ink sac. You'll write a firm, extra-fine line with a little feedback using its original 14k gold nib. Pen and taper sport minimal wear. Clear, crisp imprint. 17.6cm.

Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $175.00
Vintage Pens: 4158: Parker: Raven
Duofold in disguise? Our long-slender Parker vintage pen is a little tricky to identify. Black celluloid, Lucky Curve nib, Christmas-tree inkfeed without the "Lucky Curve," no numbers, no Jack Knife Safety or Duofold imprint. Its imprint simply reads "Geo. S. Parker Pen Made in U.S.A. / Patented". As it turns out, this is a Parker Raven! Its 14k gold nib is marked as a rare Lucky Curve 2. YOU WILL LOVE its rarer SEMI-FLEX ability that writes a fine-medium line to nearly 2mm wide! It has a little feedback, but most semi-flex nibs do. We restored it with a new ink sac. Its button is steel, not gold or gold plated. No cap band; it never had one. Long and slender, this vintage pen is quite elegant. It has some light to moderate wear, but there are no cracks, nor are there any long, deep scratches. 13.4cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4154 Parker 75
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1960-1979
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4154: Parker: 75
Probably the last great pen design of the vintage pen era was the Parker 75. Our sterling silver Parker 75 desk pen is in nearly mint condition. No dents, no scratches, hardly any trace of wear! We shined it up and gave it a brand new black Parker refill. Works beautifully. The perfect replacement if you have a 75 desk base missing its pen! 16.5cm.

Vintage Pens: 4109: Parker: Vacumatic
One of our very favorite pen models is the Parker Vacumatic. It has an ingenious filling system that uses a rubber diaphragm and a hollow barrel that allows it to hold far more ink than even most modern pens. Our "Major" (standard) sized model was made in the second quarter of 1948, the last year these pens were made. We restored it with a new diaphragm. Click the headline for a close-up. You'll write a lush medium line with its 14k gold nib. It has a little feedback now because we polished the nib, but that will smooth out as you write with it more frequently. Its imprint is barely legible, and there is heavy brassing on the cap bands. You can see a little damage on the clip ring. Plus, there are a couple of light bite marks on the blind cap. Overall, this vintage pen remains a great daily writer. 12.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4122 Parker 51 Desk Set
Filling Mechanism: Vacuum Filler
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $99.99
Vintage Pens: 4122: Parker: 51 Desk Set
Make your desk truly executive-looking with a Parker 51 desk set! Fully restored vacumatic-filling Parker 51s. Their trumpets are magnetic balls attached to the base! Both pens have extra-fine nibs made of 14k gold. It's a married set. The pens look identical except the one made in 1947 has a golden centerband on its clutch ring. The other pen is from 1946. The '46 nib is very smooth with good flow. The 1947 nib is drier, smooth...but little feedback. Each pen has a couple little scratches and scuffs but no cracks. They'd look flawless to someone sitting across from you at a desk. One trumpet is slightly smaller than the other and has some warping. Its pen doesn't go as deep as the other pen into its trumpet, BUT it does form a snug fit for the pen not to dry out. The golden trumpet bases show wear and discolored spots not picked up in the photos. There's a chip in the front right corner of the base. It has brown felt underneath.
Vintage Pens: 4108 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: XF
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 4108: Parker: Duofold
Click the headline to see why we're so excited about this senior jade Parker Duofold. Looks at that nib! It has the early "Lucky Curve" imprint. There's a little scratching on the nib under the imprint, but the 14k gold nib writes a very nice, dry extra-fine line. You'll feel the paper under your nib, but it isn't what we'd consider a scratchy nib. This is quite possibly the closest Parker Duofolds ever came to a modern Japanese extra-fine nib. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. The inkfeed is a Christmas tree feed, but it no longer has its curve. Thus, this pen has an unlucky curve. There's brassing on the clip but no cracks in the cap or barrel. Some discoloration, but we've seen much worse. Look closely at the photo, and you'll see the crisp barrel imprint with "Lucky Curve" in the banner. 13.9cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4107 Parker Lucky Curve
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4107: Parker: Lucky Curve
There's so much to love about this Parker Lucky Curve...and so much to be disappointed by. On the one hand, this vintage pen has an excellent cap and barrel with no cracks and sharp pinstripe chasing as well as a clean imprint. But the cap band has a lot of brassing on the bottom edge. We'ver restored it with a new ink sac. It has its original intact Lucky Curve feed AND an original Parker Lucky Curve P3X nib! Click the headline to see a close-up. That image is magnified close to 10 times its original size, but it still doesn't show the huge hairline crack sprouting out through the 3 and drifting to the right of the breather hole. You can almost see a little crack leading toward the section from the breather hole. This rarer vintage nib of 14k gold writes a smooth fine line, and in its younger days had reliable flex...but now if you try to flex it, you might split the nib in two. Be very careful if you chose to write with it. 11.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 4105 Parker Duofold
Filling Mechanism: Button Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $59.99
Vintage Pens: 4105: Parker: Duofold
We all have issues, and this pen is no different. In spite of it all, this little Parker Duofold is like the Energizer Bunny and just doesn't give up. Its barrel says it is a Lady Duofold, but we are pretty certain most Lady Duofolds had ringtop caps, which likely makes this a bit of a married pen. We restored it with a new ink sac, and its 14k gold nib with an original Christmas tree inkfeed writes a smooth fine line. The long cap band is rare, but it is a little oblong on the cap. It spins but it feels pretty well connected to the cap. There's brassing on the ball of the clip. Click the headline to see the section that is scarred. Look closely to see a little of the barrel threading is missing, too. The cap threads on tightly. It also has a steel button. In closing...looks a little rough but it writes beautifully. A great way into vintage pens. 11.6cm capped.
