Parker Black Giant Fountain Pen - 5.75-inches Long - Lucky Curve No 12 14k Nib For Sale

Parker Black Giant Fountain Pen - 5.75-inches Long - Lucky Curve No 12 14k Nib

Parker Black Giant Fountain Pen - 5.75-inches long Up for sale is a Parker black giant fountain pen. This is an unusually large eyedropper-filling fountain pen from the early 1910-1920s, measuring a full 5.75 inches. It holds a LOT of ink and I'm sure it would take me over a year to work through a whole barrel. This is a particularly interesting pen, as it has a somewhat interesting engraving. On the barrel is the name: 'W.W. Vautsmeier - US Army'. From what I've been able to find out, W. Vautsmeier grew up in Freeport, Illinois, was in the Class of 1905 at Freepoint high school and further went to West Point Academy, graduating in 1910. He unfortunately died in a hydrogen balloon crash in February 1922. At some point after WWI, he must have purchased this pen. The pen is made of hard rubber and is actually in pretty good condition. The barrel has the above mentioned personalization along with the factory engraving, indicating the last patent date of Jun.4.12. The stamp is quite strong throughout, except for some wear down the middle. There are no cracks or chips to the threads. There is no number imprinted on the rear of the pen. The cap is also in pretty good condition. THere are some remnant pieces of what appear to be red wax on the side...two spots approx 2x3mm each. I haven't cleaned these off. There are no cracks along the cap lip. There is NO clip present, and I suspect there never was one. There are NO imprints on the cap at all. The knurled cap top is in good condition, and has some wear as shown in the photos.The section and nib are in excellent condition. The feed is the original lucky curve feed, and the lucky curve is actually intact!!! The piece underneith the nib is a Christmas-tree type feed and is otherwise intact with no missing pieces of hard rubber. The section has no marks. The nib is a HUGE no. 12 lucky curve 14k gold nib. It is absolutely massive. The iridium is actually intact and the nib is quite smooth. It writes with a FINE line.Again, this pen is being sold unrestored and will likely need rinsing and some amount of tune-up before use. The pen will definitely need cleaning and flushing. It is being sold 'as is' with no returns accepted. The size is absolutely massive at 5.75 inches. This is about the same size as a Mont Blanc 149, significantly larger than a Senior Parker Duofold and much, much larger than a Parker Lucky Curve Trench pen (photo below, but no other pens included).I will only ship this pen insured and tracked...this can be a bit expensive outside of USA and Canada.
