Parker Duofold Junior in Red. 1959.

Regular price £65.00

The Parker Duofold Junior, despite the name, is not a small pen by any means.  At 15.8 cm., with the cap posted for use it is an exremely long and elegant pen, significantly longer than the standard Duofold.

Finished in red, with Gold filled clip and decorated cap band, this is a fine example.  The body and cap have an unmarked surface and the Gold trim is similarly pristine.  The cap, which is a smooth screw fit, carries a red end 'jewel'.  The barrel imprint, identifying the pen as an English made Parker Junior, is clearly legible and complete. 

The pen has been fully serviced and tested.  The 'aerometric' squeeze bar filler works perfectly and is easy to use.  The 14 Ct, Gold Parker no.10 nib is straight and well aligned with a clear imprint and a date code for 1959.

The nib is really quite splendid.  It writes with a very smooth, broad line and has the very pleasing soft feel only found on top quality nibs.  It cannot be described as flexible but the springiness allows a little line variation.

The pen has clearly been well cared for.  It still has the original Parker 'halo' box and instruction booklet, both in very good condition.

At the moment the Parker Duofold Junior is much underrated but that is sure to change, particularly for a pen in such fine condition.  It is not possible to identify a new pen with a Gold nib and of this quality and 'breeding' at anywhere near the price!
