Long before TV became common, in 1941, Parker used the idea of "television" to describe its visible ink supply through the barrel. Maybe this is well-known, but it was the first I heard of a visible ink supply called television!

Very interesting ad. Television was invented before WWII but got put on hold until after the war. When they made the ad I wonder if they knew of television or some ad copywriter just made up the word.

Another important point to note is that all the way back into 1935 they had a model made in Canada called the Televisor You can read more about that pen in a good artice on Tony Fischier's "Parker Collector" site right here.

Excellent ad when Parker was at the top in terms of quality and innovation

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time
