Extraordinary Pens - Parker 51 Princess


A name like that already suggests a rare and special pen! This 1950 Parker 51 Princess Demi Aerometric-filler is gorgeous. It is the smooth gold-filled finish, with a cap surrounded by 12 rectangular clear glass crystals.

Parker 51 Princess

According to Zazove & Shepherd in their Parker 51 book (2004, p. 71),

“The rarest Demi in existence…was designed by Don Doman and introduced in the mid west USA. Only a limited number were made and it never went into full production. Furthermore, it did not feature in Parker Advertisements.”

Different size, shape and color jewels were used, and a sample bag of other of these original jewels are included. This model is correct with no clip, and it has a fine nib. It’s a new-old-stock pen, complete with the even rarer original purple velvet inner and white outer box. Collectors, this is a rare find! Check it out in Catalog #76!
