Overview

 A wonderfully preserved Parker Duofold Set, in its original hard case, brightly coloured, clearly very well looked after as both the pen and pencil show very little signs of wear

The Fountain Pen is fitted with a superb 14k Gold Fine Flex Nib, a real delight to write with smooth, springy with ample flex (line variation from a fine to a medium/broad) a superb writing experience. 

It is rare to find such a set so well cared for. 

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in excellent condition.

The pencil is in near mint condition

 

Restoration 

The set has been conservatively restored in house. 

The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, gently polished and fitted with a new ink sac. Its brass stud button has also been cleaned and polished 

 

Imperfections 

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

The fountain pen has some discolouration to the Jade Green above the section threads, this is a natural phenomenon caused by the variation in exposure to light. Otherwise only minor surface wear prevent the pen from being listed as near mint condition

The pencil shows only the lightest signs of use and is in near mint condition 

The hard case shows its age a little, and there are ink stains in the interior

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully - a beautiful Fine Semi Flex nib 

Please take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery - cannot emphasise enough that this is a 5 star nib!
