Parker


Parker and Waterman are old American pen companies that migrated to Europe for business reasons. Both are currently owned by Newell Brands. Both have made wonderful pens through the century. I'm particularly fond of Parker Vacumatics and Duofold Juniors. English Parkers are also wonderful writers, often with flexible nibs

Parker Duofold Junor Jade Set
pen643 pen643

Pen1877 - This is a Parker Duofold Junior Streamlined set in jade plastic.  The pen has the typical brownish discoloration. The pencil shows what the jade green really looked like.  Fine nib. There's a little distortion to the hard rubber insert on the cap - not bad, but it's there.   4 1/2", 114 mm. 

Price: $125 with free shipping in the US

English Parker Duofold NS
pen643 pen643

sb460 - This is a Parker Duofold NS that would be a great everyday pen. It has a smooth medium (on the fine side) nib. The nib has been bent and straightened back into place before it reached me.  It writes very well - I'm impressed. There's some brassing of the arrow tip and light wear to the barrel. Chocolate brown in color. 5 1/4", 133 mm.

Parker Duofold Streamlined Senior

Parker Duofold Maxima

SB 440 - An English Duofold Maxima in very good shape. There's a little brassing of the cap ring and the imprint is on the faint side, but it has a firm 14 Kt fine nib and an aerometric filler. A pretty pen on the larger side.  5 1/2", 142 mm.

Parker 75 - French

Nassau Green Parker 51 Set
pen643 pen643pen643 pen643

SB393 - The Nassau Green color in Parker 51s is quite uncommon and collectible.  This one is in great condition, and includes the fountain pen and working mechanical pencil. Fine nib on the pen. The box shows mild wear.  I've changed the diaphragm for the Vacumatic filler. The pencil uses 0.9 mm lead. Engraved name on both: "D.S. Renninger." As a footnote, this was found in the wild on the coast of Carolina. 5 3/8", 135 mm.

Red Hard Rubber Senior Duofold
sb42.jpg sb42.jpg sb42.jpg

Pen1095 - An imperfect but still nice Red Hard Rubber Senior Duofold.  What's wrong? A very small chip and lip crack, for one. There's no pressure on the lip when the pen is fully posted, so there's no reason this should get worse.  But it is there.  The cap band is fairly brassed (could be polished to hide it, but it's still brassed). The barrel threads are black. When rubbed, they smell like rubber, but feel like plastic (I'd bet the latter).  The imprint is a bit worn, but completely present (see the middle photo).  And the spring is a two-piece spring, like those in a streamlined Duofold. Nib is fine and semi-flexible.   5 1/2", 139 mm.

Parker Vacumatic - Flex Nib
pen643 pen643

SB496 - Pretty green Vacumatic. What's odd is the combination of a Penol (Olsen) mark (which means it's Danish) and the "Made in Canada" imprint on the barrel and the 14Kt fine *flexible* nib.  Great condition other than the mediocre transparency.  5 3/16", 133 mm. 

Price: $165 with free shipping in the US -SOLD

Parker Duofold Maxima
pen643 pen643

SB 459 - An English Duofold Maxima in very good shape. The imprint is unusual: "From: 26th Colchester Sea Scouts".  No brassing, almost no wear. It has a firm 14 Kt medium nib and an aerometric filler. A pretty black pen on the larger side.  5 1/2", 142 mm. 

Price: $145 with free shipping in the US - SOLD

Parker 51 Aerometric
pen643 pen643

SB424 - Pretty aerometric filling Parker 51.  Fine-to-XF 14 Kt nib. Someone buffed out a name that had been lightly engraved, which you can barely see now and can't read. I couldn't catch it in the photos - too faint.  No dings to the gold filled cap. 5 1/2", 137 mm.

Price: $130 with free shipping in the US Price Reduced: $80 SOLD

English Parker Duofold
dbc11 dbc11 

SB 400 - English Parker Duofold in very dark burgundy.  New sac.  Moderate surface wear, but no deep scratches. Nice imprint. Almost no brassing. 14Kt nib medium looks like it was straightened at some point, but it works well now.  Button filler. A practical everyday pen.  5 1/4"; 133 mm.

Price: $110 Free Shipping in the US Price Reduced: $95  SOLD

Ariel Kullock Oversize "Parker 51"

sb471 - Ariel Kullock makes custom pens in Buenos Aires.  This example is a gorgeous oversize version of a Parker 51.  The cap is sliver (not as tarnished as it appears) with a silver-colored arrow clip. The barrel is a translucent burgundy - gorgeous!  Aerometric filler.  A big, somewhat weighty pen. Medium nib, leaning toward broad by 51 standards.  5 7/8", 150 mm.
