Extraordinary Pens – Parker Black Giant

This is a 1918 Parker “Black Giant” eyedropper-filler in Black Hard Rubber.

Parker Vacuum Filler Junior Opaque Black

Here is a 1932 Vacuum Filler Junior (the mid size model) in opaque Black (solid black – not laminated). Parker was issued a design patent for the laminated plastic (which at first Dupont doubted they could manufacture).
