Parker 51 Burgundy set

Regular price £95.00

Tax included.

 This Parker 51 set, finished in 'British Burgundy', was made in England in 1956, the second quarter, to be exact.

The 'British Burgundy' colour is much 'redder' than the American counterpart, it is sometimes referred to as 'Bloody Burgundy'. 

The set, comprising an aerometric filling fountain pen and a clutch pencil, is in excellent condition.  The finish has a deep, lustrous unmarked finish and the pencil carries a clear imprint identifying the set along with a date code.

The 'lustralloy' caps are also in good condition although there is a small indentation on the side of the pencil cap, as shown in the photograph.  The pencil operates by pressing the cap to extend the lead and has a manual retract.

The set has been fully serviced, cleaned and tested.  The pen fills well and the 14 Ct. Gold hooded nib writes with a very smooth, medium line.

The contemporary Parker box is in good, clean and solid condition. 

The Parker 51 is an iconic fountain pen, it was often copied but never equalled, this set  is a fine example.
