Parker 180 Flighter Floral etched design. 1981

Regular price £135.00

This Parker 180 Flighter, made in England in 1981, is a very uncommon variant; it has a delicate floral pattern deep etched into the surface of the barrel and cap.  The pen is in superb condition throughout and appears to be unused. 

A very slim and elegant pen, the 180 is a cartridge/converter filler, it is fitted with the original parker metal ink canverter and a new ink cartridge will be supllied so the pen is ready to write in either configuaration.

The plished chrome clip is secured by a 'stack of coins' cap stud, reminiscent of that in the Parker 75.  The barrel end stud, also chromed, is slightly flared so that, when posted, the cap 'clicks' on to the pen and prevents the cap reim coming into direct contact with the barrel thus preventing scratching.  Under magnification the end stud shows no wear to the edges, suggesting little or no use.

The large triangular nib is unique, it is supported underneath by a long, slim feed and on the top by a triangular metal arrangement.  It is a most striking and attractive nib set up but is also probably the most lethal in the wrong hands!

The rarity of this pen, and its superb condition clearly make it a collector's item but perhaps such a strikingly attractive pen deserves to be used and shown off!
