For your consideration we are offering for sale this Restored Circa 1928 Parker Senior Duofold Fountain Pen in Lapis with White on Blue coloring. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, ultrasonically cleaned, and put back together and is now in wonderful writing condition.
I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, section, and NIB. Replaced the old sac with a new sac. Hand polished the Gold Filled Parker Clip, 2-Ring Cap Banding, and 14K Duofold NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, and Polished the barrel, blind cap, and cap to bring back the vibrancy of the fountain pen and to protect the material of the fountain pen. This Parker Duofold is the Senior Size and measures 5 1/2" capped and 6 1/2" posted.
The fountain pen cap, barrel, and blind cap are in magnificent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs. The Cap has a Gold Filled Parker Clip with PAT SEPT 5 - 16 stamped and has been polished to shine bright with no wear. This Parker Sr. Duofold has the 2-Ring cap banding that displays rich gold filled color with just very minor wear - the 2-Ring Cap Banding is a bit more uncommon than finding a single cap band Senior Duofold. The barrel is clearly stamped with, "GEO. S. PARKER DUOFOLD FOUNTAIN PEN JANESVILLE, WIS LUCKY CURVE U.S.A. PAT 4-25-11". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. The color of this Parker is good, but you will notice the barrel is darker than the cap.
This Senior Duofold has a button filling mechanism and I have tested with water and fills as it should. Works fantastic and as designed to.
The Parker Senior Duofold NIB is 14K that writes extremely smoothly. The actual writing portion of the 14K Parker NIB has a medium point measuring roughly .85mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a medium to broad stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the medium line measures at .63mm with very light pressure, and the broad line measures at .93mm with medium pressure when measured with digital calipers. The writing 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 Parker Quink Blue-Black Ink.
This is an Iconic vintage Parker Duofold Fountain Pen in the senior size in hard-to-find Lapis. I would consider this Parker grade in Fine to Very Fine Condition. The Parker Senior Duofold is a beautiful pen and fits well in larger hands. It is ready to write or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
