Overview

 A rare and beautiful Parker Duofold Junior Streamline set from the 1930's. The fountain pen carries a firm Fine nib and has been fully restored in house. The propelling pencil writes with a 1.1mm (thick) lead and also comes ready to write. A superb set from the 1930's in remarkable condition  

 

Condition

The fountain pen and pencil are both in excellent condition.

 

Restoration

The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, polished and fitted with a new ink sac

The pencil has been checked over and fitted with a 1.1mm lead 

 

Imperfections 

There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings

The fountain pen shows minor signs of wear, some light micro-scratches and brassing to the trim, but otherwise excellent. The pencil has some age related wear around the grip section, and similar signs of minor surface wear, but both are overall excellent clean examples. 

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib writes a firm Fine line, on the dry side. 

Please take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery for a closeup 

 

The pencil writes a thick (1.1mm) broad line 

 

Finishing Comments

A lovely vintage pen set, the hard case is not the original, but nonetheless provides a nice home for the pair. The set comes Grand Vision Guaranteed, and should last for another 90+ years if well looked after!
