Parker Duofold Bumblebee Limited Edition Fountain Pen.
This is one of only 100 Parker Duofold Centennials produced by Parker for the London Pen Show in 2007. Thirteen of the pens were retained by Parker, so only 87 of the edition were released to the worldwide market. Extremely rare and difficult to find. This pen is Ed. 095/100
Although known as the London Parker Duofold (see the cap decal) when it was issued, the pen community gave it the name 'Bumblebee'.
Inspired by a 1930's design of the Parker Vacumatic. The material chosen by Parker for this Duofold has the same laminated design with white bordered yellow rings alternating with transparent rings. Both the cap and barrel are partly transparent.
Mint as new condition, with all boxes and papers. The certificate signed not only signed by Dave Ruderman, then Director of Heritage Products at Parker, but also personally signed and dated by Geoffrey S. Parker himself. Only some of the edition bear his signature.
