Extraordinary Pens

Vintage Pen Catalog 90 Section 1

1927 Waterman Set of nine (9) Red Ripple “Color Banded” pens in a rare store display. The “Black-banded” is the Holy Grail, with only about 10 known to exist. See below for a description of the display and each pen. Ten (10) items in total. For two days we will only sell the entire collection intact. Starting on day three we will sell the components individually. Order individually if you would like (first come, first served), and we will let you know on day 3 if you got your item. Just a suggestion: fill the single empty slot in the tray with the matching #7 Red Ripple pencil with its 2 GF bands at the top of the barrel.

1925 1926 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in “Pompeian Brown” Celluloid. In 1921 Parker produced a group of Pompeian Brown Hard Rubber Duofolds for test marketing by Lewis Tebbel (who first proposed the design of the Duofold). These Duofolds were also test marketed in Chicago, with accompanying newspaper ads describing the pen as “red brown” or ”maroon.” By early 1922 Parker switched production to the orange/cardinal we are familiar with, calling it “Chinese Red” in their advertising. The example here was very likely made in 1925. The material is celluloid (Parker started using Celluloid in 1925) rather than hard rubber, it has the “medium size” DUOFOLD barrel imprint (made smaller in 1926), the large “Lucky Curve” banner and a single raised cap band (made level with the cap in 1927). Now why did Parker produce Duofolds in 1925 in Pompeian Brown, years after switching all Duofold production to “Chinese Red?” Shepherd & Zazove’s wonderful book, Parker Duofold, explains (p.128) that “…after the transition to celluloid many other color combinations were tried…and were not used as mainstream production.” Then the first color swatch shown is [Pompeian] “Brown!” So, the pen offered here is one of a small run of Pompeian Brown Duofolds produced in 1925 as a possible color to market, but was rejected and no more were made. Parker produced the Duofold Sr., Junior and Sr. Desk Pen in Pompeian Brown. GFT. Only six (6) Duofold Sr. in Pompeian Brown are known to exist. Fine nib. New-old-stock. Slight color shift where the barrel is protected by the cap, a small scratch in the “Duofold” imprint and a small flake missing from the plastic in the “F,” otherwise mint. Un-saced to protect the color. On request I’ll install a silicone sac.
$2000

1952 Parker/Cartier 51 cartridge/converter-fill in 18K solid gold “Basket-weave” pattern. Cartier Serial Number 00749. Since 1840, Cartier has sold its especial wares worldwide to royalty and other discerning customers. This pen is no exception. Manufactured by Parker for Cartier, the design is remarkable. Black gripping section. Broad, oblique nib (shaped like left foot). Near mint+.
$2600

1948 Parker 51 Vacumatic in Nassau Green (rare color). 14K Solid Yellow and Pink Gold Empire Cap (rare cap), clip and bottom tasse. Double-broad, oblique nib (shaped like left foot). Near mint+ with very deep and crisp barrel imprint. Matching pencil below.

18
1969 Parker 61 Presidential ‘CARIOQUINHA’ capillary-fill in 18K Gold in “Alternating Barley & Plain Panels.” Turquoise gripping section The clip markings (“18K” and “CP” in an oval), attribute the cap and barrel to the famous Rio De Janeiro, Brazil goldsmith, Celestino Praça. In the 1950/60’s Praça was already very well known for his fabulous 18K Parker 51 caps & barrels when the 61 was introduced. Because the 61 itself did not sell as well as the 51, he made very few 61 cap & barrel combinations. This scarcity enhances it’s value today. Broad nib. Near mint.
$750
19
1935 Soennecken Prasident BF in Black. GFT. The very rare, first year Prasident with the bulbous cap lip. Visualated barrel. To access the filler button, the sleeve on the bottom of the barrel retracts by turning anticlockwise. The pen uses a filler tube (like a Parker Vacumatic) so several pushes of the white casein button completely fills the pen. Large medium/broad nib. Near mint+

$900
33
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 fail in the marketplace. It succeeded, and Parker soon added “Duofold” to the barrel imprint. Medium/fine 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 close to perfect color. Near mint in original box with instructions. Photo of pen with packaging.

1929 1929 Parker Duofold Sr. BF in Black & Pearl Moderne. This pen came to me by way of a retired Parker employee. Nib & clip marked “Parker” while the barrel is factory imprinted “Diamond Medal.” Shepherd & Zazove’s book, Parker Vacumatic, explains (p.110) that Parker supplied pens for Sears to sell under the “Diamond Medal” brand. This pen was produced and imprinted for that purpose, but instead wound up with a Parker Duofold nib and clip and in the collection of a Parker employee. Fine nib with correct comb feed. New-old-stock, absolutely mint. Un-saced to protect the color. On request I’ll install a silicone sac.

1938 Parker Sr. Maxima Vacumatic set in Golden Laminated. GFT. Pen & pencil barrel each engraved “R. E. Stehman BDMSTR USS Yorktown” (I originally thought “BDMSTR” meant”Bombardier Master.” but a WWII historian and expert explains that it stands for “BANDMASTER”). R.E. Stehman was deployed to this famous aircraft carrier, commissioned in 1937, which was heavily damaged and sunk by the Japanese in the battle of Midway in June 1942. Yorktown played an important part in the battle, assisting in the destruction of multiple enemy aircraft carriers, and absorbing the majority of enemy counter attacks (source: Wikipedia). The US Navy won the battle of Midway with very heavy losses to the Japanese, and it largely marked the end of the Japanese Imperial navy. Double jeweled. Two-tone medium nib. Near mint.

Fills by dipping the bottom end of the barrel into the ink (no need to open the barrel). The die cut in the nib also functions as the vent hole for the ink/air exchange.

1895 Neverblot Fountain Pen #2 size taper-cap eyedropper-fill in Smooth Black Hard Rubber. Two wide GF repousse bands on the barrel. Located in Rochester, NY. In their July 10, 1915 issue,Puckmagazine reports that the French government is negotiating a $10,000,000 order with the Neverblot Pen Co. for machine guns and hand grenades, and selected them because of the company’s high degree of precision manufacturing. Not only do the pens not flood, have a screw cap, but a gyroscope arrangement sounds a whistle just before it runs out of ink. (The pen offered here does not have such a mechanism, but is earlier than the screw cap pen discussed in the article), The article concludes by reporting that the pen company eventually accepted the contract and switched production out of fountain pens because of “its duty to humanity and to the Stars and Stripes as the flag of a neutral nation.” “Warranted” extra-fine, flexible nib Near mint+.

The Jack Knife Safety was introduced in 1909, a pen with a screw-on cap designed to prevent ink leakage. The cap had an “inner-cap: which butted up to the gripping section so any ink leakage would be into the inner cap rather than the outer cap. The first models had the “Turban-top” as this pen has.
