Vintage 1929/1935 set, celluloid Fountain Pen & Pencil Parker Duofold Duofold Pearl & Black, lady's size
this set is one of the first examples of Parker Duofold in Permanite (celluloid) streamlined with smooth tapered ends and ringtop chateleine, placed on the market starting late 1929. The pen has the barrel marked "GEO.S. PARKER DUOFOLD MADE IN U.S.A." and the pen nib bears the words "134508 PARKER DUOFOLD DELUXE MADE IN U.S.A.". The loading system is the "Botton Filler", carried out by pressing and releasing the metal button located under the black ebonite pad. Length: pen 8.5 cm, pencil 8 cm. Item condition grading: **** good, the celluloid is still in good condition and has not been polished, the original gold filled Parker clip and the triple band on the cap are in good conditions. This is a vintage set, not tested, it seems in good working order but it could need a minor overhauling and/or control before use.
