For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Vintage Circa 1988 Parker Premier Fountain Pen in the Chinese Lacquer with Speckles Model with 14K Gold Medium Italic Nib. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, ultrasonically cleaned, put back together, and now is in wonderful writing condition.
Note: This Premier series was introduced to the European market on September 12, 1983 at the Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo. Made in the Parker Meru factory, this was to be the luxury version to the 75. It was slightly longer and with a larger diameter, the Premier was designed to be a higher-end model. It has an elegant look to it with its black, flat jeweled end tassies made out of onyx, and faceted rings that make it sparkle in the light. This Parker 75 Premier was manufactured from circa 1983 to 1991.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Hand polished the 22K Gold Electroplate Cap Clip, Cap Banding, and Trim. I have cleaned the 14K Nib, Feed/Stem, and Section. This Parker 75 Premier has no enameling loss and is in incredibly great condition. This Parker 75 Premier is known as the Chinese Lacquer with Speckles model made in the late 1980s and measures 5 3/8" capped and 6 1/8" posted.
The fountain pen cap and barrel are in magnificent condition with no dings, dents, or repairs with the slip cap always securing tightly to the barrel. The cap sports a faceted cap band and has two black onyx jewels at the ends. The Cap Lip is stamped with, "PARKER FRANCE". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel.
This Parker 75 has an ink converter filling unit and I have tested with water and fills as it should. It is a Parker factory ink converter.
Here is where the pen really excels. The NIB is fitted with an 14K M1 (medium italic) and marked with, "PARKER 585 FRANCE with the PP Arrow Hallmark". When measuring the actual tip of the 14K NIB it measures at 1.17mm when measuring with digital calipers. The back of the feed shows an "MI" for Medium Italic. When writing a sample, this NIB writes with a double extra fine to double broad line/stroke. The double extra fine stroke measures at .27mm on the horizontal strokes and the double broad line/stroke measures 1.27mm on the downward strokes when measured with digital calipers under medium to firm pressure. The nib is a very smooth writer. The sample was done with the actual pen in the images that are listed for sale. The writing sample was used by dipping the NIB in Montblanc Blue Ink.
This Parker 75 Premier Chinese Lacquer Model Fountain Pen is an extremely gorgeous fountain pen that is also a great writer if you like "stub like" nibs. I would consider this Parker 75 to grade in Excellent Condition and is deserving of a great collection. It is ready to write or just add to your writing arsenal collection.
