This vintage Parker Duofold fountain pen was made in England in the 1940’s at the Newhaven factory. The pattern is called Light and Dark Blue Pearl and Black and it really is quite striking. You will see from the montage how the light blue pearl reflects the light. The barrel text reads “Parker Duofold, Geo S. Parker REG.T.M.”. The cap has two gold fill cap bands and the Parker ball ended clip. The smooth medium Parker nib reads “Parker Duofold Pen 14K N”. It is a small Duofold measuring 115mm with cap on and 145mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with some minor age wear. It is a button filling pen which means you take off the small screw-on cap at the bottom of the barrel to reveal a button. Put the nib in the ink and press down and release the button and this will allow the ink to flow into the inner sac. It is an attractive fountain pen in an unusual finish and is suitable for everyday writing or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced 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.
