Lapis Lazuli Parker Duofold Fountain Pen

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.

No need to use these ‘warranted accurate’ Samuel Turner Senior brass postal scales on display in the pen shop to weight parcels, because postage is free on all orders over £20 to a UK address at and  So the postal rates displayed on these postal scales from circa 1880 no longer apply.
