Just got this Parker 45 desk set in a divided wood box. I won't have it for a few days or so, but it sure looks nice.  Appears to be from the late 1960's.

Nice one Brad.

I would have been bidding against you if my wife had not whacked my hand to slow down my eBay shopping.

LOL

 

I was slightly surprised I won it. I was just looking at the listing again and there is no mention of the nib size. I imagine a medium or fine is most likely however. We will see once it arrives.

 

I had been thinking about picking up a desk set for a while, and this seemed to fit the bill. Pretty good shape, a working pen, and cool base. And reasonably priced too. Maybe this will motivate me to get all the junk off my grandpa's old desk so I can use it again.

Warning

Desk sets can be addictive...I speak from experience.

But they are also fun to use.

There is "something" different about using a desk pen (vs. a clip pen) that makes me enjoy writing with a desk pen more than a clip pen.
