Vintage Sterling Silver Parker 75 Ballpoint Pen & Fountain Pen Set Circa 1975 For Sale
Boxed Vintage Sterling Silver & 14k Gold Parker 75 Fountain Pen & Ball Point Pen Set circa 1975
The Fountain Pen measuresapproximately 5 1/8 inchesor 130 mm across its length from end to end when the lid is in place and it is just under 1/2 an inch or 12 mm across the width or diameter of its central body from side to side.
The Ball Point Pen measures approximately 5 1/16 inches or 128 mm across its length from end to end and it is just under 1/2 an inch or 11 mm across the width or diameter of its central body from side to side.
The Presentation Case or Box measures approximately 6 1/4 inches or 139 mm across its length from end to end by 2 3/4 inches or 70 mm across its width from side to side and it stands just under 7/8 of an inch or 21 mm tall to the top of its lid when in place.
Both the pens are made from 925 standard sterling silver bodies that have a raised relief grid pattern and they have gold plated caps and arrow shaped pocket clips, the fountain pen still has its original 14k or 14 carat gold nip and the ball point pen has its original Parker U.S.A working T-Ball Jotter blue ink refill, both pens are complete with their original presentation case or box that also contains a Parker U.S.A full ink cartridge along with the original Parker nib holder or clamp, the Ball Point Pen has a push top or cap actuated action and both pens have been impressed with the words Parker, Sterling, Cap &Barrel, U.S.A. the pens have Not been engraved with a previous owners initials or family monogram all as photographed below and I estimate that they were made circa 1975.
Thecondition isused and near Mint for their age.
The Ball Point Pen is in Full Working Order and the Fountain Pen looks like it has Never Been Used.
The pens have No Dents, No Splits, No Cracks, No Holesand No Repairs that I can find, the pens are both straight, the decoration is very crisp, the gold plate has no wear, both pens open and close perfectly as they should with ease, the 14 carat gold, sterling silver and makers marks are all still clearly legible although as this is a used vintage Parker pen set the outer body of the box has a couple of small dents in its outer rim along with some minor surface marks, the pens have some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use along with the patina of age that is to be expected and a gentleclean would not go amiss.PersonallyI think that this pair of vintage Parker pens can still be used today and that they wouldmake a superb addition toany collection, I also think that they look absolutely fantastic considering that they are around 35 to 40 years old.
This Superb Quality Boxed Vintage Sterling Silver &14k Gold Parker 75 Fountain Pen &Ball Point Pen Set from U.S.A circa 1975 is one of several pieces of antique and collectable silver that I have also listed.
