Here is a vintage Parker Vacumatic fountain pen in Golden Web celluloid. This is the Junior sized model, measuring approximately 4-7/8 when capped. Standard girth, not slender. This pen has been used, but is in excellent condition despite being over 80 years old. The Golden Web celluloid retains a beautiful glossy finish with exceptional color. When held up to light you can see the transparency of the barrel with light ambering. The Vacumatic filling system has been properly restored. All remnants from the previous diaphragm have been removed and the barrel has been thoroughly cleaned inside and out. The correct sized diaphragm has been installed and cut to the proper length. The pen has then been tested to ensure proper filling and functionality. This pen fills and writes as it should! Gold filled clip, double cap bands and blind cap tassie are all in excellent condition. There may be a touch of light brassing to some of the high points, but I have not polished the trim either, so it is possible this could be tarnish over the gold fill. Factory Parker imprint is present on the barrel. Some areas of it are lighter than others, but the majority of the imprint is present and easily read. Pen is fitted with a 14k Parker nib. No size marked, but nib looks to be a fine. A rigid nib, it is a smooth writer, if intended to use. Overall, I believe this pen to be in excellent condition. It is free from any chips, cracks or breaks. The Golden Web celluloid retains is original glossy finish and color. The gold filled trim is clean. No names, initials or monograms have been engraved anywhere on the pen. If you have any questions about this pen, feel free to ask!
