Vintage Parker Duofold Senior Fountain Pen The Big Red Restored
For your consideration is this 1926 Duofold Senior fountain pen in red permanite – this is the flat top version, the largest size, measuring a large 5-1/2 capped. The barrel is of slightly later manufacture than the cap, evidenced by “23” imprint which means a 1932 manufacture. They typically were using 2-band caps by then. The gigantic Duofold nib is about a fine and writes very well. It’s very firm but is very smooth characteristic of the manifold nibs of the period. Condition is excellent with the flaw being a crack in the nib from the base to the letter “N”; because it does not involve the breather hole, it will not get worse with use and will not impact the functionality of the pen. I have restored the pen with a new ink sac. I fully disassembled the pen, knocked the nib and feed out for deep cleaning, and then installed a new sac. Then polished the red permanite celluloid and gold filled trim. The gold band is in good shape without any brassing. There’s the typical brassing on the ball.
