Parker Uk Herringbone Duofold

Recommended Posts

Hi, Folks!

This is an unusual UK made Parker Duofold Juniorette made from a green and black herringbone celluloid probably dating from 1941-1944. It follows the look of the earlier 1930s US streamline Duofolds.

It's is 4 1/2 inch long button filler with a Parker Duofold 14 karat gold nib. The imprint is a simple Parker Duofold type with no date code. These pens are fairly uncommon and were probably made in Senior, Special, Junior, and Juniorette sizes in herringbone patterns of green and black, rose and black, and brown and black.
Anyone have any others? I've seen a few but only had the one to photograph.
Thanks!

Hi, Folks!

This is another uncommon UK made Parker Duofold Juniorette made from a rose and black herringbone celluloid probably dating from 1941-1944. It follows the look of the earlier 1930s US streamline Duofolds. It's is 4 1/2 inch long button filler with a Parker Duofold 14 karat gold nib. The imprint is GEO. S. PARKER next to PARKER over DUOFOLD next to REG. T.M. There is no date code. These pens are fairly uncommon and were probably made in Senior, Special, Junior, and Juniorette sizes in herringbone patterns of green and black, rose and black, and brown and black.

great finds - think we're all very envious. The book shows one additional related colour combination you've yet to find Jim - the brown and black herringbone, plus it seems that all three colours were produced where the herringbone runs in a helical pattern, as opposed to a vertical seam. Do you ever have the trim re-plated?

In the U.K. we don't usually score well with Parker variants - think of all those rather dull Newhaven aero Duofolds - so it's heartwarming to see the comment from Shepherd and Zazove that "There were far more colours and patterns used in England than America" - though on pens made earlier than the aero Duofolds.

I have to have these English pens. Simply beautiful.

Stand in line and take a number. [ the number will be high, very high ]

I would love to photograph both versions of each pen. Have seen but not had that opportunity. These were not replated.

Very nice looking herringbones.

 

@mitto would love to see yours.

This one came into my possession today.  It’s 130mm capped, no date code, English nib. Simple Duofold stamp to the barrel. Lovely thing.

I was using some button filled Duofolds earlier today, they are perfect to use, a huge ink capacity and, like myself, very easy on the eye. Nice job Budd, that is one very attractive pen.

 

It got me thinking, was the Vacumatic a significant step forward?

You have TWO choices, lock it up OR sac it and use it.  I would use it and be the envy of everyone!!  I have a 1926 Red pen/pencil that I use when I'm at the pen shows.  Watching people cringe while I'm doing so puts a hidden smile on my face.  Not to worry, I have the Red Bandless locked away 🙂

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
