This vintage fountain pen - the Parker “51”, was launched in England by Parker in the early 50’s. Its aerodynamic design has made it a classic and the plaudits it has received over the years both in terms of design and reliability are well deserved. It has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”. This particular example has a Black body with a metal cap in a finish Parker termed “Lustraloy” with a thin band at the cap lip above which is the “Parker” branding. It comes with a smooth Parker 51 smooth medium to slightly broad point nib that states “585 14k Parker England ”. There is a ghost of text around the barrel but it is too feint to read. Condition of both pen and cap is fair to good with some general age wear as can be seen in the montage and marks on the cap where the clip has been loose and turned in the past. This is reflected in the price. What makes this particular example stand out is the smooth Parker 51 medium to slightly broad point nib. The aerometric filling system is often termed "squeezebox" and is a very simple method of filling the pen with ink by unscrewing the barrel to expose a metal shell covering the ink sac - just press the metal bar and release up to five times and this vintage pen is ready to use. It measures 138mm with cap on and 148mm with cap on barrel end. The Parker "51" was an outstandingly popular fountain pen in its day and it remains a stylish and extremely good “work horse” today. 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.

This particular vintage pen was made in England by Parker around the early 1960’s but the model was first introduced to the English market with this filling system in 1948. The aerodynamic design of the "51" has made it a classic and the plaudits it has received over the years both in terms of design and reliability are well deserved. It has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”. This particular model has the classic combination of a black body and a rolled gold cap. The Parker 51 conical nib has a smooth medium to slightly broad point. The gold fill cap carries the Parker “jewel” in the cap crown and also the Parker “Halo” logo which was added to caps from 1960 onwards. Condition is good with only minor surface wear. “51”’s are a good size fountain pen measuring 137mm with cap on and 151mm with cap on barrel end – and a pleasing weight and balance in the hand. The aerometric filling system is often termed "squeezebox" and is a very simple method of filling the pen with ink by unscrewing the barrel to expose a metal shell covering the ink sac - just press the metal bar and release up to five times and this vintage pen is ready to use. Parker 51’s are an excellent every day workhorse and this is a good example of its type. They are also an ideal vintage fountain pen to start a collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch.

It has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”. This particular version, rarer than most, has a body in Black and the sought after rolled silver cap with rolled gold clip.

This vintage fountain pen and pencil set, part of a recently puchased collection, was made by Parker in America in the late 1940’s. The aerodynamic design of the "51" has made it a classic and the plaudits it has received over the years both in terms of design and reliability are well deserved. It has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”. This particular “51” fountain pen and pencil set has a body colour which Parker termed “Forest Green” - a very dark green and a “51” colour which is quite rare to find today. The cap of the fountain pen is in a smooth polished metal with the Parker branding around the lip of the cap and the light grey Parker “jewel” on the cap crown. The Forest Green barrel covers the aerometric (squeezebox) filling unit the text of which states: “Parker 51 To fill press ribbed bar firmly 4 times. Use dry writing superchrome ink holding pen point down, wipe point with soft tissue. The Parker Pen Co. Made in U.S.A.” The Parker 51 nib has a medium smooth point and reads “Parker Made in U.S.A. RU 1948”. The Forest Green pencil has a matching polished metal cap and the light grey Parker “jewel” on the cap crown. It is a repeater style pencil which is operated by pushing the cap down on the barrel to expose more lead. Both the fountain pen and the pencil are in good condition with only minor age wear. The fountain pen measures 135mm with cap on and 164mm with cap on barrel end. The pencil is 132mm long.  “51”’s are always a good workhorse - suitable for everyday use and, particularly in this colour, for adding to a “51” collection. 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.

Here we have a Parker 51 Duo of fountain pen and ballpoint. Parker extended the “51”range to include Duo sets with the addition of the ballpoint in the UK around 1956. The sets were understandably very popular at the time. However, unusually this particular duo example in black with rolled gold cap was made in Argentina in the late 1950’s/early 60’s for the South American market. The aerometric (squeezebox) filler unit states “Parker Industria Argentina” with the Parker logo. The fine point nib states “Parker Octanium Industria Argentina”. The advantage of the Octanium nib is its resistance to wear and its strength. Thus it has a firm point which some prefer to a gold nib. The cap text on both fountain pen and ballpoint states “Industria Argentina” and the Parker logo. Both cap crowns carry a black tassie. The ballpoint takes modern Parker refills and has a blue medium refill in place. The fountain pen measures 139mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end. The ballpoint length is 127mm. Condition is good with very minor age wear. A classic Parker set to either add to a collection, present as a gift or to have for personal everyday use if you prefer a firm nib and a fine point. 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 and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you will also be able to select your payment method.

The magnificent “51 Flighter” was introduced by Parker in the U.S.A. in 1949. This particular example whilst featuring the gold fill cap band which was subsequently dropped, is later with a nib date of 1958 – although this cannot be taken as a definitive dating mechanism. The cap and barrel with their gold fill trim are in a steel finish Parker termed “lustraloy” - visually aligning it to the aircraft that inspired its design. The advertising at its launch, which also stressed its dependability and durability stated: “The Flighter…a new Parker “51”. Here is a foretaste of the future – a smooth writing beauty fashioned in a modern mood. Beneath its silvery exterior, there’s the most advanced pen ever created…” . It carries a Parker 51 medium nib stating “14k Parker England 58” and it has Parker’s aerometric filling system. Often termed "squeezebox" it is a very simple method of filling the pen with ink by unscrewing the barrel to expose a metal shell covering the ink sac - just press the metal bar and release four times and this vintage pen is ready to use. This is a good size vintage fountain pen measuring 136mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is also good with minor age wear and a slightly darker than usual cap crown “jewel”. The Parker “51” combines style with everyday reliability and this particular model is indeed a fine example of those qualities. 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.

This aerometric filling Parker “51” with its gold filled overlay on cap and barrel, was made in the U.S.A. in 1950. Parker called it the “Signet” (the model was renamed in 1957 to Insignia following legal advice). Its aerodynamic design has made it a classic and it has been marketed as 51…the world’s most wanted pen”. The Parker 51 fine to medium point nib states “14k Parker England” so this has obviously been replaced over the years. Condition of both barrel and cap is good with only minor age wear and, in a good light, a very small ding is visible on the cap to the left of the clip. The cap carries the Parker arrow clip and has the Parker grey “jewel” in the cap crown and states “Parker 1/10 14k Gold Filled” around the cap lip. The barrel carries the text  “Made in U.S.A. 50.0”.  The aerometric filling system is often termed "squeezebox" and is a very simple method of filling the pen with ink by unscrewing the barrel to expose the steel sleeve filler covering the ink sac - just press the metal bar and release up to four times and this vintage pen is ready to use. It is a good size fountain pen measuring 135mm with cap on and 149mm with cap on barrel end. The Parker "51" was an outstandingly popular fountain pen in its day and remains a stylish and extremely good “workhorse” today. Representing Parker at its best, this is an excellent vintage fountain pen for adding to a vintage fountain pen collection or to use everyday. 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.

Here is a Parker “51” Trio of vintage fountain pen, ballpoint and expel/repel pencil all in working order. The “51” aerometric filling fountain pen was introduced by Parker in 1948. Its aerodynamic design made it a classic and the plaudits it received over the years both in terms of design and reliability are well deserved. Towards the end of the 50’s Parker extended the “51” range to include Trio sets of which this is a good example. They were understandably popular at the time. This particular trio has a burgundy coloured body with what Parker termed, a “lustraloy” cap that is really brushed steel. All three items are in good condition with only minor age wear and are complete with cap jewels.  The Parker 51 nib is a smooth medium writer and states “585 14k Parker England”. The ballpoint takes modern Parker refills and has a new blue one fitted. The expel/repel pencil contains lead and the original rubber underneath the pencil cap. It will take modern day 0.9mm replacement leads. The fountain pen measures 138mm with cap on and 150mm with cap on barrel end. The rotary pencil measures 127mm and the ballpoint 128mm. An excellent vintage writing trio from a respected manufacturer to either add to a collection or to use everyday.
