The Parker 75 was named after Parker's 75th Anniversary Year (1963) and released in 1964 as a high end fountain pen that was a more modern alternative to the Parker 61 with some little innovations that would set it apart. The shell section was shaped and textured where a users fingers would grip the pen whilst the nib was a friction fit that could be turned around easily.
The pen was originally released in the sterling silver Cicelé (or Ciselle) pattern which consisted of a cross hatch grid of tiny squares engraved into the pen, supposedly inspired by the pattern on a cigarette case purchased from a London Jeweler, and set off with gold plated end pieces and a gold arrow. In early 1981 production ceased in the US but carried on in France until the Parker 75 was finally discontinued in 1994
This example is from the 'Place Vendome' collection, a beautiful silver plated grain d'orge pattern. The pen comes fully serviced and ready to write with a smooth 14k gold medium nib
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings.
The pen has the tiniest signs of use in the form of micro-scratches and some light tarnishing to the silver plating. We have been careful not to over polish the pen.
It is in excellent condition
