Parker Duofold Jr. Red Rubber Giant Imprint 1922-23 1st Issue Fountain Pen. Rare For Sale
Parker Duofold JR. Red/Orange (Scarlet) Hard Rubber with Giant Imprint.1922-231st Issue Fountain Pen. Very Rare. Just serviced with new sac. Works 100% as new.
This rare early Duofold is the highly sought after Hard Rubber type. Pre Permanite plastic etc. The colour is Red Orange that is unique to these early examples. The pen is in amazing condition considering its 90 years old. These Rubber examples often split or crack around the cap. To find one with perfect cap and barrel threads is very rare. The Large oversized Giant Duofold Imprints are deep and crisp. This pen has seen very little use if any in its life. I have photographed it with a Permanite Red from 1924-25 with the medium imprint and also a 1st issue yellow Mandarin with yellow threads from 1926-27 to show examples of the Parker Duofold Imprint sizes. (1924-25 Red and 1926-27 Mandarin yellow are examples only. Not included. See photograph 5.)
This pen also has its Lucky Curve Christmas tree feed still. These are leftovers from the eye dropper days. Parkerstoppedusing these curved feeds by 1924. Rare to find one still perfect. The original early issue Duofold nib is also superb. Writes with a fluid fine to medium fine line. Very user friendly and smooth. A joy to write with. These pens are button fill. Pump action. Simply unscrew the end cap. Place nib in ink, press button 5 or 6 times, take nib out of ink, wipe excess on paper towel, screw end cap back on. Done... Takes seconds. Lasts a long time. Great pen. Fills good as new. Sucks and squirts like a new pen.
The condition of this pen is almost perfect. It is certainly the best I have seen so all original. It has no dents, scratches or bite marks. Once in the hand to the naked eye looks fantastic. Has only the very lightest signs of useconsummatewith age and very careful storage over the years. The only damage I can find even withjewellersloupe is a single thread missing on the end cap threads. (See middle image of photograph 5.) This does not effect the pen in any way and the end cap screws on and off perfectly as it should. Wonderful pen in stunning all original never polished condition. Very Rare! The PATT dated Clip and ring are yellow gold plated and also in stunning condition with no brassing or plate loss etc. Rare.
The pen has been fully serviced and cleaned. A new sac fitted then re-assembled as it left the factory in the mid to late 1920s. All functions 100% as new. Very easy to use pump action refill. Perfect as a gift or treat yourself to a rare collectible that can be used and enjoyed daily.
