View Full Version : New member - and a rescue pen

October 16th, 2012, 04:54 PM
Hello All,

I recently introduced myself in the New Member area. Found a couple of photos of my most recent purchase - a 1920's Parker Duofold Jr. Lucky Curve w/stand. I don't collect vintage, however, I couldn't help but admire this little beauty in a local antique store. It was what I perceived to be a bargain and it deserved a good home so I "rescued" it. I cleaned it up a bit and it writes quite well as a dip pen. I haven't tried filling it with the button; I assume the sack is dried out and I'm hesitant to attempt opening it up. Anyway - let me know how you like it. I'll try to scrounge up some photos of my collection to post in the near future.

That is a very nice find! Looks like it is in pretty decent shape and looks pretty sharp in that stand. In my opinion, you just can't beat a good desk set for quickly writing something down. I don't know too much about the Parkers so I don't really have any advice to give on restoring that one but i'm sure it is possible!
