Spotlight on: Parker 61 - Rainbow Cap

 - Rainbow Cap Parker 61

Click for a larger version of this picture.


The Parker “61” was launched in the U.S.A.1956 and in 1964 in the U.K. It sold with a range of cap designs that included this, the more rare “Rainbow” Rolled Gold overlay, normally with a solid colour barrel – in this case black. The “61”, with its stylish rolled gold arrow inset into the pen shell, pointing the way to the nib, is quite distinctive and rather elegant. The cap carries the “61” emblem and the text “Parker Made in England. The nib has a smooth medium point. Both cap and barrel have the Parker “pearlised” ends. On unscrewing the barrel you will find the Parker capillary filling mechanism. This is immersed into the ink bottle to draw the ink into the filler by capillary attraction. This means that the pen can be filled without immersing the nib. Parker advertised it as “the pen that fills itself”. It is a reliable and clean filling method. It does depend upon the owner using the pen on a regular basis, and refilling it, so preventing ink drying in the capillary filler. This stylish vintage fountain pen measures 13.6cm with cap on and 14.4cm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with some minor age wear as you will see from the montage. This is a distinctive and elegant vintage fountain pen with a quite rare cap finish. It will sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection. It will also provide good service as an everyday writer. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you may also select your method of payment.
