$900.00
For your consideration, we are offering for sale this Restored Circa 1929 Parker Senior Streamline Duofold Fountain Pen in Mandarin/Yellow Celluloid. This fountain pen has been thoroughly taken apart, ultrasonically cleaned and put back together and is now in wonderful writing condition. This particular Senior Streamline Duofold is a Toronto, Canada Model.

I have ultrasonically cleaned the NIB, feed, and section. Replaced the old sac with a new, properly sized Silicone sac. I have hand polished the Gold Filled Parker Clip, 2-Ring Cap Banding, and 14K Parker Duofold NIB. Cleaned, Buffed, Polished and Waxed the barrel, blind cap and cap to bring back the vibrancy and to protect the celluloid 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 is clean with no cracks or repairs. The Cap has a Gold Filled Parker Clip stamped and has been polished to shine brightly - it displays a touch of wear on the ball of the clip. The cap banding has been polished and displays a gold-filled color, however, there is some minor wear in several areas. The barrel is crisply stamped with, "GEO. S. PARKER DUOFOLD FOUNTAIN PEN TORONTO CANADA LUCKY CURVE (Lucky Curve imprint is light)". There are no monograms or personalizations to either the cap or barrel. The barrel and cap have excellent overall color matching but the barrel is just a subtle hint darker than the cap.

This Senior Duofold is a Button Filler and has been tested with water and fills as it should. The filling unit operates as it was originally intended.

The Parker NIB is 14K with a PARKER DUOFOLD PEN CANADA B imprint. The actual writing portion (iridium) of the 14K Parker NIB has a Broad point measuring roughly .98mm when measured with digital calipers. When writing a sample with this NIB, it writes with a medium to double broad stroke/line. In the writing sample provided, the medium line measures at .74mm with light pressure and the double broad line measures at 1.28mm with firm pressure when I measured with digital calipers. The nib writes smooth and produces a wet line. 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 Ink.

Any specks of white in the images are from the cotton that I used to clean the barrel and cap.

This is an Iconic vintage Parker Duofold Fountain Pen in the Senior Streamline size. Extremely difficult to find undamaged in the hard to find Mandarin celluloid. I would consider this Parker grade in Very Fine to Excellent Condition. This Parker Sr. Streamline Duofold is in ready to write condition or just add it to your writing arsenal collection.
