Up here is a vintage Parker Duofold Senior Streamlined Button Filler fountain pen, which was manufactured in USA circa 1920s.

The pen is in senior version of the series, of overall length 5-1/8 inches.

This Parker Duofold is a fine example, in stunning rare lapis lazuli blue marble. The color is pretty stunning with minimal discoloration (many examples show uneven darkening, but not found on this pen)

It is a streamlined version.

The pen is in nice condition, without any crack and fault, only some minor wears due to age.

The imprint on the barrel is stunning and crisp; reads ‘GEO.S.PARKER    DUOFOLD PATENTED   MADE IN U.S.A.’.

It bears a LARGE Parker 14ct solid gold nib, non-flexible, writing smooth fine line.

The Parker Duofold has a button filling system, which is particularly simple and elegant filling method – the end of the pen unscrews revealing a button which is depressed while the nib is immersed in ink.

The pen has been serviced and tested for full functionality. This pen is rare and very much sought after, of such a vintage pen in good condition. Ownership of pen with the history and prestige of the Parker Duofold, will provide the owner with a feeling of satisfaction and a sense of ceremony each time that they write.

The Parker Pen Company was founded in 1888 by George S. Parker, whose mission was to manufacture a better pen. The Parker Pen Company’s tradition epitomizes the highest standards of craftsmanship, technology, and aesthetics. In 1921, the company introduced the iconic Parker Duofold pen. Yet by the early 1930s, Parker launched replacement for Duofold, the Vacumatic. In 1941, the company developed the most widely used model of fountain pen in history (over $400 million worth of sales in its 30-year history), the Parker 51. It is also referred as ‘the most wanted pen’. From the 1920s to the 1960s, Parker was No.1 in worldwide writing instrument sales.
