Hello everyone.

I have a Parker fountain pen which was given to me by my father many years ago.  I have just given it to my granddaughter.  We would like to know the name, age and any other information we can get on it.  It has a squeeze fill type cartridge.    Please see the two pics I have attached.

Thank you,

Craig.

Greetings from Pittsburgh!   :W2FPN: 

My first semi-vintage pen was a Parker 45 that I found in an antiques mall in northwest PA a few years ago.    It has a 14K medium nib, and with the right ink it's like dancing on ice on the page.

Besides the links that other people have already told you about, I'll add one that I was tipped off to when I posted pix of my first 45 (yes, there have been others since then  :D).  It's a video made by a guy named Tyler Dahl who did a video on how to disassemble a Parker 45 for thorough cleaning: http://tylerdahlpens...-parker-45.html and is very useful (I will warn you that I almost lost the nib down the drain because when removed from the nib assembly the nib is REALLY small.....  :huh:  Yikes, I think that I started that thread about 6-1/2 or so years ago at this point....  :o 

But the fact that the pen is now going on to a fourth generation is really neat.  When I was a kid I had glommed onto some pen/pencil combo that had been my grandfather's -- mostly because it had BEEN my grandfather's; sadly of course that pen is long gone.  :wallbash: No idea what it was, and I thought the leads for the pencil end went in through the lever.  My mother couldn't figure out my fascination with it -- my parents grew up during the Depression and for her, fountain pens were messy and a lot of trouble (although I remember her trying to get a ballpoint started by taking a match to the ball end...).  But of course she probably never had a *good* pen like a Parker....

Thank you everyone for the information.  I've never used a Forum before and it's a bit confusing for an old guy.  By the way, I'm in Rochester, NY. I hope this post goes out to everyone who responded to my initial request.

Thanks again.

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!
