This Parker Junior Duofold fountain pen was made in Canada around 1926 and is a classic Parker fountain pen of the period. It is in a finish Parker termed “Chinese Red” and it was extremely popular at the time. It is a short but quite chunky vintage pen measuring 12cm with cap on and 15 cm with cap on barrel end. The cap sports the original gold plated Parker ball ended clip with the text “Parker” and two thin gold fill cap bands. The Parker 14ct nib has a good medium point and reads “Parker Duofold Pen Canada D”. It fills by unscrewing the blind cap at the bottom of the barrel and pressing in the metal button – then releasing – leaving the nib in the ink for 5-10 seconds to allow ink to enter the interior sac. Condition I have listed as fair to good and this is reflected in the price. You will see from the montage that there is a fair amount of brassing to the cap bands and general age wear. The barrel imprint is very feint. Nonetheless this classic Parker vintage pen is in good working order and is an excellent purchase for everyday use. 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. Filling instructions will be sent with your order. A gift box is available free of charge on request.
