Medium nib, Button fill system.
This Parker Duofold De Luxe vintage fountain pen in a Black and Pearl finish was made in Canada around 1932 and is a classic Parker fountain pen of the period. The cap sports the gold plated Parker branded ball ended clip and has three cap bands, the middle one being broader than the others and denoting the De Luxe version. The barrel imprint reads “Geo. S. Parker Duofold Made in Canada”. The Canadian Parker nib has a smooth medium point that reads “Parker Duofold Pen Canada B”. You will note from the montage that the barrel is darker than the cap and this is due to age ambering – a common occurrence with this model – nonetheless it remains a very attractive vintage Parker. Condition is good with a crisp imprint and only minor age wear. 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. It is a medium length and chunky pen measuring 127mm with cap on and 155mm with cap on barrel end. So a classic vintage fountain pen, from an excellent manufacturer at the height of their powers of production and design. It is suitable to use as an everyday writer or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale.
