Extraordinary Vintage Pens

1
1929 Aurora Extraordinary Pens Duplex lever-fill Set in Jade with Black ends. The "Duplex" was Aurora’s first celluloid pen. This is one of the rarer models, with its repousse clip having a floral filigree design and three cap bands. Even rarer to find it with its matching mechanical pencil. Medium, triple-flexible nib! The pen has some slight ambering (a bit more on the cap than the barrel), otherwise near mint in original box (box a bit threadbare on top). Close-up of set in box.

$1500

9
1946 Parker "Red Band" 51 button-fill in black. Parker’s attempt to make a button-fill 51. Designed to alleviate the problem of flooding collectors in the Vacumatic-fill 51, it’s quite rare today, as it didn’t succeed in the marketplace. There are two versions, the earlier (like this example) with the red band in plastic, and the other with the red band made from aluminum. Most found have no barrel imprint, while a few have been found with the 1946 date code. Medium nib. Near mint. Shown open.
$900

2011 Torelli, Brad "139" Plunger-fill in Pearl Grey (Grey with Silver Pearl Striations). This is the same material Omas used for their Paragon.

$850

15
1927 Waterman 42 Continental Safety eyedropper-fill in 18K White & Yellow Rolled-gold (gold filled). Besides the exquisite two-color filigree work, what also makes this pen remarkable is that the overlay is on a RED RIPPLE pen! (3) panels of open Yellow RG filigree "Vines" and (3) panels of White RG open filigree "Flowers," each separated by a narrow "Barley" panel. Repousse cap top and foliate clip. Fine, flexible nib! New-old-stock. Mint in original box. Close-up of pen in box.

$1750

17
1929 Waterman Patrician LF in Black Plastic. Much rarer than Black Hard Rubber – when plastic was introduced (first by Sheaffer in Jade Green) the buying public wanted colorful pens, so far fewer were made in black. GFT. Wonderful, fine, flexible, italic nib. Near mint+
$1500

18
1949 Waterman "Capitol" button-fill in Golden Web. The only Golden-Web Waterman found to date! The button-fill and washer clip are also very rare, as is the later use of an Aikin Lambert trademark (AL, who were Waterman’s nib supplier, was acquired by Waterman in the early 1900’s, allowing them to move nib production in-house). Quite likely made in England, as the nib is imprinted "Watermans 14CT W-2B." Fine nib. GFT. New-old-stock. Mint

Featured Vintage Pens - Parker Duofold

19
1923 Parker Duofold Sr. "Big Red" BF in Red Hard Rubber. Rare model with the "Giant" imprint (1921 – 1923). The 1922 model had no cap band. The single raised cap band (which Parker called the "Golden Girdle") was added and used from 1923 to1928 (decorative, and it prevented innumerable cap lip cracks). GFT. The earliest of the Duofolds we have available. The name "Duofold" was trademarked in 1922; the red and black color combination was eventually patented (1927). Rare, broad, italic nib. Slight posting mark on the barrel under the cap, otherwise mint. New-old-stock.

1926 Parker Duofold Sr. Box in Red with Black ends (designed to match the "Big Red"). Features the Scarlet Tanager, used in many of Parkers advertising and promotion activity, i.e., "The Duofold rivals the beauty of the Scarlet Tanager." Filling instructions folded inside box and printed on the bottom. No tears, but is shopworn. Previous owner’s name hand written on the bottom of the box, "H. Woodridge Martha Okla." I didn’t look up the 1926 history of Martha, OK, but in 2000 it had a population of all of 205 people. This perhaps makes the box more interesting! Excellent. Close-up of box.
$85

33
1926 Parker Duofold Sr. "Big Red" BF in Red Celluloid. Parker called this plastic "Permanite." It was stronger than rubber and could be produced in different colors. Sheaffer had already introduced their "Lifetime" pen in Jade Green (1924). Parker persuaded DuPont to sell them the celluloid despite their exclusive contract with Sheaffer. Sheaffer filed suit and Parker won by proving that they had actually introduced a plastic pen before Sheaffer, even though it was casein (milk based) rather than celluloid (cellulose nitrate based). GFT. New-old-stock. Mint. [Four available (all mint): (2) fine nib; (1) medium nib; (1) broad nib]
$450

34

$600

35
1927 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in Green Permanite. The first color introduced by Parker after cardinal (red). GFT. 1926 models did not have "Duofold" imprinted on the barrel. Parker hedged their bets by protecting the "Duofold" name should the green color have failed in the marketplace. It succeeded, and Parker soon added "Duofold" to the barrel imprint. Medium nib. Two things of note: first, the early examples, like this one, are far more translucent than the later versions, and second, jade Duofolds are almost always found highly discolored – this example has perfect color. New-old-stock. Mint. [See matching pencil below].
$1000

36
1926 Parker Technically, not a Duofold Sr. Pencil, since it has the earlier non-Duofold "Parker" imprint in serif type. Matches the pen above. [Buy with pen above @ $175].
$225

37
1926 Parker Duofold Jr. BF in Lapis Lazuli Blue-on-Blue. Canadian manufacture. GFT. Medium, flexible nib (flexible Duofold nibs are rare!). New-old-stock. Mint. Barrel imprint has been highlighted in red. I will remove this on request.

$750

41
1927 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in Lapis Lazuli White-on- Blue. GFT. Medium, flexible nib (flexible Duofold nibs are rare!). Barrel a tad darker where it is protected by the cap, and is overall darker than the cap. But otherwise near mint+, and a great user with its flexible nib and much reduced price!
$450

42
1927 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in Mandarin Yellow. George Parker visited Japan and bought a vase with yellow cloisonne. On display in his office, the color was so admired that he decided to make a pen in the color. While at first successful, it soon became the lowest selling color in the Duofold line. The first version has yellow barrel threads which easily stained, and was quickly changed to black threads, like this example. The yellow celluloid became fragile over the years and cap lip cracks are very common. This one is perfect. GFT. Medium, italic nib. New-old-stock. Mint.
$1550

1935 Parker Duofold BF ring-top in Lapis Lazuli White-on-Blue. GFT. Barrel imprint says "Duofold Parker" on two lines, and has a 1935 date code. This is either very late production of a straight-sided pen, or is fitted with a replacement barrel manufactured six or seven years after the original pen was sold. In either case, it’s unusual and rare. Fine nib. Outstanding color! New-old-stock. Mint. [See pencil below]

$475

51
1928 Parker Parker Osmia AG Duofold Sr. "Big Red" BF in Red Permanite. In 1928 Parker bought controlling interest in the Osmia Pen Company in Heidelberg, Germany, forming Parker AG. Soon afterwards, Duofolds began to be manufactured there, and "Parker – Osmia A-G Heidelberg" became part of the barrel imprint. The venture was unsuccessful and was disbanded early in 19. Today, Parker Osmia Duofolds are very rare and highly sought after by collectors worldwide. Medium nib. New-old-stock. Mint.
$750

52
1928 Parker Parker Osmia AG Duofold Special BF in Red Permanite. Parker introduced the "Special" is 1923 for customers who wanted a full length lighter than the Sr. (or who just didn’t want to buy a "Junior" pen). Some barrels, like this example, were imprinted "Parker Duofold Special" others imprinted "Parker Duofold JL" (for ‘Junior Long’), and others (I believe most of the production) were simply imprinted "Parker Duofold" with no designation for the extra length indicated in the imprint. Please see the pen above for the explanation of the Duofold Osmia production. Exceptionally rare pen! Fine nib. New-old-stock. Mint.
$600

1929 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in Lapis Lazuli White-on-Blue. 19 saw the design change of the entire Duofold line becoming streamlined, in response to Sheaffer introducing their "Balance" pen (Wahl responded with the "Equipoised, Conklin with the "Symetrik," and Waterman with the Patrician).

1935 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in Black.1930 saw a design change in the barrel imprint from the single line "DUOFOLD" to the double line "PARKER DUOFOLD."

This is a 1934 or 1935 example, correctly fitted with Parker’s "comb" feed and "arrow" nib, also being used in their new Vacumatic line.

65
1930 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in Moderne Green & Pearl. Parker introduced this color after the start of the depression. It was not overly successful and is today very hard to find. The celluloid was also very prone to both darkening and crazing, so examples with near mint color and mint condition, such as this one, are very hard to find. GFT. Fine nib. Has no bladder (I’ll install a latex bladder on request). New-old-stock.
$650
