Description

Details

Type  Vintage fountain pen fully restored and working well.

Product Name  Lady Duofold Deluxe (ring-top version).

Manufacturer and Year  Parker, made in U.S.A. – 1920s-30s. (see condition section for notes on the pen's date)

Length  4-9/16-inches (not counting the ringtop hardware).

Filling System  Button filler. We've fully restored the filling system and it's working very well.

Color  "Red" (orange) cap and barrel with black ends and section. The cap has a 1/2" wide gold filled band.

Nib   Fine flexible Parker Pen nib. It writes smoothly and has a good amount of flex. See writing sample below.  Not all that common to find a flexible nib on this model.

Condition  Excellent condition. The permanite looks great with a very clear imprint. The knurling on the blind cap and cap is strong. The cap band looks a little scuffed, and there is some plating wear on the edges; it is also personalized with "J. Hop". There are no significant scratches, or dents or cracks. 

Notes on dating this pen: In our research, we came across conflicting information about the parts. The wide gold band on the cap dates from the 1920s, but the barrel imprint design dates from the 1930s. Additionally, there is clearly a date code of "9.", indicating 1939. Perhaps a previous owner needed a repair, and when it was returned from Parker the barrel had been replaced with a newer version barrel, or maybe the owner swapped out parts themself. Whatever happened, the color of the parts matches very nicely, and the cap screws on very smoothly with no indication that it's not original to this barrel. Evidently, this pen has experienced some adventures in its ~80-95 year lifetime!

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
