Hi Everyone,

Well, as long as I'm on a roll here. These are some more of the Parker Jotters I love so much. Take a look and enjoy. happycloud9.gif happycloud9.gif

Francis

Just because I think these are pretty. This happens when Parker was changing the color run and you end up with different colored barrrels.


An assortment of different colored compacts and Tiara's


Some demonstrater barrels


All 1st year Jotters with some hard to come by colors


Jotter Minims


An assorment of Princess and Debutante Jotters


Me-Ta-Sweet Dispensers, also known as Saacharine. These were producded in 1964 as a novilty item and are some what hard to come by these days. Note the last picture shows the oringinal boxing of these.

Hi Francis.

I was wondering how I would define a Princess Jotter from a Debutante Jotter from this stunning collection?

Is there a definitive answer?

Regards
Paul.

Hi Paul,

Sorry I missed your question the 1st time around. As far as I have been able to tell the 1st debutante was the ones with the gold barrels and then later changed the name to Princess. :notworthy1: :notworthy1:

Thanks, Francis

There must be two worlds out there. I inhabit the one where I managed to get 1 tiara on ebay and I thought that was NIRVANA. There is another world out there with secret places of supply that I've never seen or heard of down here in Oz. Great photos - all I can do is ask, how do I get a ticket to this other world?? :puddle: Is it like being a member of a masonic lodge with rites and rituals? - I don't like the sight of blood.

You must surrender your firstborn to gain entry. Then gather all non-jotters in your house for the bonfire.

Awesome! I only wish my collection were that nice. I'd love to pick up a 1st year, demonstrator, and a Princess or Debutante. Right now I've got the following:

- Parker 21 Jotter of unknown age, black
- Older Jotter, probably 70's, white
- Jotter from the 80's, red, with advertising
- Plenty of modern plastic and stainless ones
- Jotter Jubilee SE in blue dots
- Jotter Jubilee Premier in black

Hi Paul,

Late to the party as usual, I think what is happening here is the 1st ones out of production were called the debutante in 1957 and then later changed the name to Princess in 1958. The 1st production does not have the Parker name or Parker Halo on the Barrel, but Later production has the Parker name and Halo on the barrel. The Parker halo was not added till after March 1958. The Princess with the Crown Tops all have the Halo on the Crown, so production was after 1958. Sure hope I am correct on this, but think I am on the right track. Photo's below show same Princess in two different boxes. Should have taken a photo of the Barrels to show the difference. :headsmack: :headsmack:

Tears comes to my eyes... So beautiful... >sob<


I have one Jotter. A flighter I bought in a store in 1989.
More of a workhorse than a piece of art...

Thanks for sharing.
