14k Gold Parker Nib – FINE SEMI FLEX
Button Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write
Twist Actuated Propelling Pencil
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.
The fountain pen is in excellent condition.
The pencil is in near mint condition
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
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
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!
