Vintage Pens: Parker Vacumatic

Vintage Pens: 3985 Parker Vacumatic
Era: 1940-1949   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $125.00
As the last sands of the hourglass known as the Jazz Age slipped out, the Parker Pen Company decided to reinvent the fountain pen. This futuristic new creation would forego the traditional rubber ink sac for a stylish hollow-barrel design that would hold far more ink than a sac pen ever could. After 3 years of research, innovation and testing that cost many millions of dollars at the height of the Great Depression, the Parker Vacumatic was unveiled. This particular model was made in 1945, and we have fully restored it with a new diaphragm. Very little wear mars the surface of the cap and barrel, which has very good clarity...allowing you to see how much ink remains. The blind cap of the tail isn't 100% flush with the barrel, but it is close. You will write a splendid fine line with its original 14k gold nib. The blue diamond in the clip meant it was guaranteed for the life of the original owner. 12.8cm capped.
