This old workhorse of a vintage pen is looking for a new home to put it to work. On the surface, this discolored jade Parker Duofold senior looks a little worse for wear, especially when you see a little of the barrel threads missing on close inspection...and two combs off its inkfeed...and heavy brassing on the trim. (Click the headline for close-ups.) Yet, we restored this classic with a new ink sac, and it is rarin' to go. It writes a smooth broad line with its 14k gold original nib. Clearly, somebody once loved this pen and wrote everything with it. It isn't much of a museum piece, but it still wants to be a daily driver in your stable. 13.8cm capped.
