SUMMARY
 

Up here is a vintage Early Parker Lucky Curve #20 Button Filler fountain pen, which was manufactured Pre-War in USA circa 1910s. The pen is in nice condition, without any damages all over the body. It is in stunning and highly sought after glossy black hard rubber. This is a special version, with pocket clip and ring-top on the same pen. It bears a Parker solid 14ct Lucky Curve gold nib; and it is in special early design with the 'LUCKY CURVE' embossed in a wavy pattern. On the barrel is imprint with patent dates (as early as 1890s) and the lucky curve banner; and on the cap is the imprint 'JACK-KNIFE SAFETY PAT.JANE 4.1912'. At the end of the barrel is the model number '20' embossed. This Parker Lucky Curve has a button filling system, which is particularly simple and elegant filling method - the end of the pen unscrews revealing a button which is depressed while the nib is immersed in ink. The pen has been serviced and tested for full functionality. This pen is rare and very much sought after, of such a vintage pen in excellent condition. Ownership of pen with the history and prestige of the Parker Duofold, will provide the owner with a feeling of satisfaction and a sense of cermony each time that they write.

STORY
 
fountain pen history

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 Europe being 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.
