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 with a twist filler 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 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 and is in a pattern Parker called Grain d’Orge – or Fine Barley. It is an early example with flat cap and barrel ends, marked 20 microns on the cap lip and dates from around 1970. This earlier model is heavier at 26g (the later models weigh around 21g). 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 585 France”. The feed has “B” on the reverse denoting a broad point but to me it writes more as a medium to broad. The section threads are plastic. It can be filled either by using the squeezebox filler unit that is in place or by inserting a Parker ink cartridge. Condition is good with only minor age wear. The finish is not as bright as in the montage. It measures 128mm with cap on and 144mm with cap on barrel end. It is a good 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 medium to broad nib point, or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection as a good example of its model. 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 at checkout.

This squeezebox fill 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 as illustrated in the montage. 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. 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.
