The Parker Ellipse was only made for a short period at the turn of the century so they are not at all easy to find. This set carries a date code for the last quarter of the year 2000.
An extremely large, chunky and slightly quirky pen, it has an ultra modern design that owes little to any previous Parker offerings. The striking 18Ct. Gold two tone nib is a sign of a very high end pen. The feed is enclosed on the under surface with a plastic 'dome' to prevent drying out. It is a superb writer.
This Parker Ellipse set comprises a fountain pen and matching ballpoint pen and original case. The fountain pen is a cartridge/converter filler and the ballpoint has a cap twist action.
The set is in excellent condition throughout with no signs of use. The original box, very substantial and quite heavy, is also pristine.
