This small, but perfectly formed, vintage fountain pen was made by Parker in the early 1920’s. It is a gold fill overlay Baby Lady Duofold – sometimes called the “Midget” and quite a rare pen. It follows the button filling style of the Parker Duofolds of the period and has the innovative Parker “Lucky Curve” feed. Also in common with the fashion of the period it has a ring on the top of the cap rather than a clip. This enabled ladies to wear it on a ribbon or chain around the neck or gentlemen to hang it from a watch chain. The text around the cap lip states “Parker Fountain Pen Gold Filled Patented” and the medium point nib text states “Parker Lucky Curve Pen Made in U.S.A.” As its name suggests it is very small measuring 84mm with cap on and 106mm with cap on barrel end. As such it will require refilling more often than a full size fountain pen. Three alternating design panels interrupted on one side by the clear personalization lozenge enhance the gold fill overlay. Condition is good with only minor age wear. A delightful vintage Parker fountain pen to either add to a collection or use as an everyday writer. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. unless stated otherwise and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout and filling instructions will be sent with your order. My apologies that the quality of the photograph is not as good as I would like and this will be rectified as soon as possible.
