To mark the centennial of The Parker Pen Company (1888 – 1988) it was decided in 1987 to produce a range of Parker Duofold pens inspired by the design features of the earlier Duofold first produced in the 1920s. The result was a range of Parker Duofold Centennial fountain pens and matching ballpoint pens. The first of these new for 1988 Duofold pens was produced in a marbled blue finish and are now considered to be vintage pens by many pen collectors. An excellent example is currently for sale at Penbox along with a slightly later maroon marbled and later again lapis lazuli Duofold fountain pen.
