Parker 51 Overview
The Parker 51 went into production in 1941, and remained a best-seller for decades thereafter, it has been dubbed 'The World's Most Wanted Pen'. The majority of examples in circulation, date from the 1950s and are still providing faithful service to millions of people worldwide.
Perhaps no other fountain pen has been so unanimously acclaimed as a classic. Nor is it merely a triumph of styling -- though it has a place in the Museum of Modern Art's design collection, it is also one of the most robust and practical writing instruments ever made.
The Parker 51 Cocoa is a highly collectable colour, complimented beautifully by a 14k Gold Filled cap with wavered lines in excellent condition, carrying a broad oblique nib. This is a rather scarce pen.
The fountain pen is in excellent condition.
This Parker 51 has been professionally restored by Grand Vision Pens.

Writing Style & Nib Appraisal
The nib has been tuned to ensure smooth writing experience.
The nib writes a broad line on the vertical and a fine line on the horizontal, smooth and medium dry.
Recommended for everyday use, calligraphy, greeting cards, signatures, journaling, and all forms of appropriate use.
Why not pair with a bottle of Organics Studio ink? An ink from their vintage series would suit this pen very well indeed.
