STORY

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.

The Parker 51 was named because research and development was completed in Parker's 51st year (1888-1939). Introduced in the US market in 1941, it soon became widely imitated by most pen manufacturers. None were successful to any significant degree in competing against the famed Parker 51. It was a revolutionary design when it debuted, advertised as 'Ten Years Ahead' of its time.

The Parker 51 remained popular and can still claim the highest sales volume of any fountain pen. It is considered by most collectors to be the best pen ever made, and is truly recognizable throughout the world. In a poll by the Illinois Institute of Technology, it was voted the fourth best industrial design of the 20th century.
