The English Parker Victory Series was conceived and named in honour of the Allied Victory in World War II. The World War II slogan ‘V’ for Victory is well known even today and the name ‘Victory’ must have had a particular resonance in the years immediately following World War II.

This stylish Parker has been manufactured in stunning rare pattern – RED HATCHED CANDY STRIPED MARBLE with gold filled trim. It bears a Parker 14ct gold nib. The button system is in perfect working condition.

This Parker Victory has a classic elegance and has been produced to the highest standards of craftsmanship, technology and aesthetics. The pen has been fully restored and tested. This is rare and very much sought after, of such a collectible and vintage pen in excellent condition.

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.
