Parker


Parker and Waterman are old American pen companies that migrated to Europe for business reasons. Both are currently owned by Newell Rubbermaid.  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

Danish Parker Duofold

Danish Parker Duofold from the 1950s, in the same style as English Duofolds.  However, it's a button filler.  The plastic on the barrel is slightly darker than the section and blind cap, which match. Otherwise excellent - no brassing.  An XF 14 kt nib.   5 3/16", 132 mm.

Parker VS - 1947

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

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.

Price: $300 with Free Shipping in the US

Danish Parker Popular - Terracotta
Targa Targa

A very pretty mid-size Danish Parker.  It's really pretty, in excellent condition, with a very clear imprint (and Danish Anchor symbol).  The nib is a medium 14 Kt Parker nib.    5 1/4", 132 mm.

Price: $125 with Free Shipping in the US PRICE REDUCED - $90  - SOLD

Mandarin Parker Duofold Set
Targa Targa Targa Targa

This is the iconic Mandarin Yellow Streamlined Duofold from the 1920s. This set comes with the senior sized pen, box, and a working pencil.  The pen cap, like most Mandarins, has small cracks. In this case they've been very well restored (by someone before me).  The close up shows the cracks.  The nib is a medium, but I'd be unlikely to use this pen - these are rare because the plastic is very brittle, so they're really mostly display pieces (in truth).  Other than some brassing of the clip ball and tiny areas of brassing on the cap bands, there are no other issues.  The box shows a some wear, but it's quite intact and very cool.

Danish Parker Duofold
pen643 pen643

A Danish Duofold. This one looks like the English Duofolds, but has a button filler instead of aerometric.  One scratch on the cap.  Mild brassing of the cap band. An XF 14 Kt nib.  5 1/8", 131 mm.

Price: $120 with free shipping in the US SOLD

Danish Parker Duofold - Big Red
Targa Targa

There must be a story to this Streamlined Parker Duofold Senior.  The imprint isn't that sharp, but you can see both the "Made in USA" and the round anchor mark that Parker put on its Danish pens. The nib is a Penol Ambassador. No question it's Danish!  Firm fine. The feed is the Christmas tree style.  New sac.  Button filler.  Faint imprint, a few short scratches, and brassing of the clip ball and cap bands.   5 3/16", 132 mm.

Price: $225 with Free Shipping in the US SOLD

Parker Premier
Targa Targa

Gorgeous cisele pen that was based on the Parker 75, but it's larger and has fancier fixtures (like the cap band). Made in France.  Broad 18 Kt nib. 5 5/16", 135 mm.

Price: $250 with Free Shipping in the US SOLD
