Vintage Parker 61 Fountain Pen and Mechanical Pencil in excellent working condition. Early model (thin barrel band) with the rare gold filled ‘Rainbow’ caps, double end jewels and other gold filled trim. Rage Red colour. Approx 5.5 inches capped.
Nib: 14K gold Medium nib.
Barrels: Smooth and shiny with no chips or cracks. The gold arrow on the pen is intact.
Caps: The rare Rainbow caps are in superb condition. There are do dents or dings and no brassing of gold filled surfaces. The caps are imprinted PARKER – MADE IN ENGLAND and each have a chevron.
Filling System: Capillary filler in working order.
Mechanical Pencil: In good working order and excellent cosmetic condition. The eraser has been replaced with a modern one, and as shown this was done rather crudely, slightly damaging the metal holder. The pencil cap is a tight fit, as is quite common, but with a firm grip it does come on and off. The mechanism works perfectly.
