We have an absolute gem of a vintage fountain pen here! This is a Canadian Parker Vacumatic Oversize fountain pen in Burgundy celluloid. It doesnt get much better than this when it comes to the 1st generation Vacs. This one has it all! Burgundy stripped cap and blind cap jewels, gold filled trim and a stunning 2-tone 14k FLEXIBLE nib! This is the Oversized model, measuring approximately 5-1/4 capped and 6-1/4 posted. Pen has been used, but it looks like it was well cared for by its previous owner(s). Cap and barrel are both free from any chips, cracks or breaks. No names or initials have been engraved or stamped anywhere on the pen. Pen has no signs of abuse or any apparent major flaws. Gold filled clip, triple cap bands and blind cap tassie are all clean, clip does show some brassing or plating loss to the high contact areas. Cap bands dont look to have any brassing, but some may be present on the high edges as well. Tassie is very clean, with little brassing to the edges. This pen has been restored and is in working order. The barrel has been cleaned out, removing old ink and existing diaphragm remnants. Once cleaned, it was found that the barrel has great transparency still, allowing used to easily view his or her ink levels. Pen has been tested with the new diaphragm and is in working order. Now, Im saving the best for the last… Pen is fitted with a Parker 14k 2-tone Vacumatic nib. No size marked, but looks to be a medium or broad nib and is flexible, nib has nice line variation to BB with light pressure. I have tested this pen out and it is a smooth writer.
