This exceptionally popular fountain pen range was launched by Parker in the USA in 1964 and, in its various finishes, was produced for the next thirty years. Parker called it the “75” following on from their usage of numbers to denote models which restarted with the “51”. The design, a cross hatched pattern in sterling silver with gold plated trim, is called “Ciselé”. It is said that the finish was inspired by a cigarette case made by a London silversmith. Around the lip of the cap on both fountain pen and ballpoint are the words “Parker Made in U.S.A. Sterling Silver”. The cap crown and barrel end have a gold fill flat tassie. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel which was designed to increase the writer’s grip. The advantage of the “75” nib unit is that the nib collar will rotate if you wish to move the nib to an alternative angle to suit your writing style– note the ruled lines and zero reference mark. This example comes with a smooth medium point nib that states “Parker 14k U.S.A. 66” The section threads are plastic. Filling is by the fitted squeezebox filler unit or by inserting a normal Parker ink cartridge (as usual with ink cartridges you will need to give the cartridge a squeeze once in position to start the ink flow). This attractive vintage fountain pen dating from around 1968, measures 128mm with cap on and 142mm with cap on barrel end. The matching cap activated ballpoint will take current standard Parker refills and measures 129mm. This is an excellent and stylish late vintage fountain pen and ballpoint in a classic Parker design with minor age wear as can be seen in the montage. Both items are a pleasing weight in the hand and fountain pen has a comforting click to the replacement of the cap on the barrel following use. They are suitable for everyday use or to add to a Parker 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. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you may also select your method of payment.

This exceptionally popular fountain pen range was launched by Parker in the USA in 1964 and, in its various finishes, was produced for the next thirty years. Parker called it the “75” following on from their usage of numbers to denote models which restarted with the “51”. This particular example was manufactured in the Parker factory in France in the early 1970’s and forms part of their “Place Vendôme” series. The “Ecossais” pattern on silver plate over brass has eleven grid bands on the cap. The model is often confused with the later issued “Prince de Galles” that has only seven. “Ecossais” is French for Scottish – and as you will see from the montage the pattern is similar to tartan. Around the lip of the cap are the words “Parker Made in France”,the Parker logo and the 30 microns mark – indicating an earlier model. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel - this was designed to increase the writer’s grip. The smooth medium point nib states “France 750 Parker”.  The feed has “M” on the reverse. The section threads are plastic and the tassies flat. It is filled either by using the squeezebox filler unit as shown in the montage or by inserting a Parker ink cartridge (as usual with ink cartridges you will need to give the cartridge a squeeze once in position to start the ink flow). Condition is fair to good with some brassing as you will see in the montage and I have priced it accordingly. It measures 127mm with cap on and 142mm with cap on barrel end. A slim, elegant and, in this pattern, quite rare late vintage fountain pen in an attractive finish. It has a pleasing weight in the hand and a comforting click when replacing the cap on the barrel. It is suitable for everyday use or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection as a fair to good example of its type. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before dispatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you are also able to select your payment method.

This exceptionally popular fountain pen, part of a recently purchased collection, was launched by Parker in the USA in 1964 and, in its various finishes, was produced for the next thirty years. Parker called it the “75” following on from their usage of numbers to denote models which restarted with the “51”. This particular example was manufactured in the Parker factory in France and is in a pattern Parker called Grain d’Orge – or Fine Barley which is on gold plate over a brass base. It dates from c1983. Around the lip of the cap are the words “Parker Made in France LE” and the Parker logo. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel which is designed to increase the writer’s grip. The nib states “Parker 75cm France”. The feed has “F” on the reverse denoting a fine point and this is in fact the case. The section threads are plastic and the top of the cap and end of the barrel are dished. It can be filled either by using the squeezebox fill that is in place or by inserting a Parker ink cartridge (as usual with ink cartridges you will need to give the cartridge a squeeze once in position to start the ink flow). Condition is very good with only minor age wear. It measures 127mm with cap on and 14mm with cap on barrel end. It is a pleasing weight in the hand and the cap has a comforting click when replacing it on the barrel. An attractive and substantial fountain pen it is suitable for everyday use, if you prefer a fine nib point, or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection.

This iconic limited edition Parker 75 fountain pen was made in the U.S.A. in 1977 from brass rescued from the “RMS Queen Elizabeth” following a disastrous fire which sent her to the bottom of Hong Kong harbour. Only 5000 pens were made for worldwide distribution – this is number 1716/5000. Upon the ship’s launch in 1938 it was said to be the largest passenger liner the world would ever see. It was used during WWII to transport American troops and refitted as a luxury ocean liner in 1946. Thereafter it carried the world’s most interesting and influential people. It was felt that a fitting tribute to the demise of such a great liner would be the creation of a limited amount of Parker pens made from the brass rescued from the ship – and this is one. Each pen has a special wooden box together with a Certificate of Authenticity stating the limited edition number. This number is also carried on the cap lip with the text “Parker Made in U.S.A. 1716/5000”. As you will see from the montage the presentation wooden box carries a brass plaque setting out the liner’s history and the fountain pen barrel has a plaque stating “RMS Queen Elizabeth”. The nib states “Parker 14k Point U.S.A.” and has medium marked on the rear of the feed. This example of a much sought after late vintage fountain pen is in good condition with only minor age wear including some cosmetic wear to the box front clasp and some letters underneath the box clasp. This is reflected in the price. There is no personalisation on the fountain pen itself. It is a good size and quite heavy vintage fountain pen measuring 128mm with cap on and 140mm with cap on barrel end. It can be used with bottle ink using the attached filler unit or with a Parker ink cartridge. A sought after Parker classic, it is suitable to add to a vintage fountain pen collection or to use as an everyday writer. I have photographed it on a photocopy of the Certificate to protect it. It is actually cream. 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. You may choose your method of payment at checkout.

This exceptionally popular fountain pen range was launched by Parker in the USA in 1964 and, in its various finishes, was produced for the next thirty years. Parker called it the “75” following on from their usage of numbers to denote models which restarted with the “51”. This particular example, dating from around 1966, is in a more difficult to find finish Parker called the Vermeil Ciselé. The sterling silver cross hatch pattern (said to be inspired by a cigarette case made by a London silversmith) is overlayed with gold fill providing a particularly attractive lustre. Around the lip of the cap are the wordsParker Made in U.S.A. Sterling & 14K G.F.”. The cap crown and barrel end have a gold fill flat tassie. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel that was designed to increase the writer’s grip. The advantage of the “75” nib unit is that the nib collar will rotate if you wish to move the nib to an alternative angle to suit your writing style – note the ruled lines and zero reference mark. The striking “75” nib states “14k Parker USA” with a “F” mark on the feed at the rear, presumably to state a fine point nib. On test, it appears to me to have more of a medium line so I have listed as fine to medium. The section threads are plastic. It will take a standard Parker ink cartridge (as usual with ink cartridges you will need to give the cartridge a squeeze once in position to start the ink flow).

It comes with the original Parker 75 box. The green velvet interior is clean and from the good condition of the pen it seems to have been kept in the box over the years. The exterior of the box is in fair to good condition. It also has the original instruction leaflet. Unusually this includes the “adjusting tool” – normally lost over the years - to enable you to turn the nib left or right to adjust to your favoured writing angle without inking your fingers.  Condition of the pen is good with some brassing to cap and barrel tassie. The pen is a pleasing weight in the hand and has a comforting click to the replacement of the cap on the barrel following use. This stylish vintage fountain pen is a good size measuring 127mm with cap on and 138mm with cap on barrel end. It is a classic late vintage Parker in a rare to find finish in good condition with its original box, leaflet and nib adjusting tool.  It is suitable for everyday use or to add to a Parker 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. Ink cartridge filling instructions are contained within the accompanying leaflet. It does not come with a squeezebox filler unit to enable bottle ink filling. A gift box is available free of charge on request if you would prefer this to the Parker box. Just request this at checkout where you may also select your method of payment.
