Vtg Pair Parker Striped Duofolds (complete pens) & Fountain Pen Desk Set Base
Two Vintage Parker Striped Duofolds (complete pens) and Desk Base. These two pens date from 1941 and are complete pens with caps and blind caps, a desk base, and tapers to convert the pocket pens to desk pens. Parker made the striped Duofolds in button-fill, a reliable system they had used for more than two decades, and Vacumatic-fill, a system Parker introduced in 1932 and modified twice more, in the late 30’s and early 40’s. These two pens are button-fill. One pen is what Parker termed green and measures 4.75 inches closed. It has a wide, gold-filled cap band with fine horizontal lines. The nib (fine point) is a 14K Aiken Lambert No. The second pen is blue striped and measures just over 5 inches closed. The cap has two thin bands and there is minor plating wear on top of the clip and clip band. The 14K nib is a fine point and is a Warranted. Both pens are in good condition and have been restored with new pen sacs. One taper tip has been damaged and re-glued (pictured). The desk base is a beautiful Portoro marble, with an abundance of tan and white irregular streaks of white and tan in a black background. It is oval in shape and measures 6 x 12 inches and is in nice condition with no chips (unusual for this soft stone, cut and polished nearly 80 years ago). The pen holders are of the style used in the early 1940’s for both Vacumatics and striped Duofolds. They are of the “pop out” design and can easily be removed from the base.
