The Parker Pen Company was founded in 1888 by George S. Parker, whose mission was to manufacture a better pen. The Parker Pen Company's tradition epitomizes the highest standards of craftsmanship, technology, and aesthetics.

From the 1920s to the 1960s, Parker was No.1 in worldwide writing instrument sales. The Parker Duofold is one of the most recognizable and enduring fountain pen designs. Launched in 1921, the pen was a phenomenal success and put the Parker Pen Company squarely into the front rank of fountain pen manufacturers. Duofold remain popular in Europebeing produced well into the 60s in varying sizes and colors when it was revived in the 80's once again as Parker's Flagship model.

Parker pens were frequently selected to sign important documents such as the World War II armistices, and commenorative editions were sometimes offered.
