Vintage 1929/1935 set, celluloid Fountain Pen & Pencil Parker Duofold Mandarin Yellow, lady's size, Nib B
the 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 barrels are marked "GEO.S. PARKER DUOFOLD MADE IN U.S.A." and the pen nib bears the words "PARKER DUOFOLD MADE IN USA 45". The loading system is the "Botton Filler", carried out by pressing and releasing the metal button located under the black ebonite pad. Length: pen 8.6 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 band on the cap are in good conditions. The pen's barrel bears the words "PAQUITA". This is a vintage pen, not tested, it seems in good working order but it could need a minor overhauling and/or control before use.
