Valentine/Parker 1940s Button Filler - Pink-Red Marbled (SB598)
Nib: Medium 14kt Parker Duofold
This is a very attractive Pink-red Marbled Valentine button filler. Valentine was an English pen company, and the barrel on this pen says "The Valentine Pen Co., LTD" The clip says Parker - but Parker bought the Valentine Company, so there's no real sense of this being a Frankenpen. The cap and barrel are well matched, and it's very attractive. There's a firm Parker Duofold 14 Kt nib that may have been bent in the past but is now well aligned and nice to use. There's a touch of brassing to the clip, but condition otherwise is very good. The blind cap has "O4" imprinted. 5 1/8", 130 mm.
