Parker Duofold Centennial True Blue Limited Edition Fountain Pen complete with all original packaging, certificate and bottle of Penman ink - No 0290 of 5000
This magnificent writing instrument was released in 2007 as a present day rendering of the exquisite Parker True Blue of the 1920's. This True Blue limited edition is the larger Centennial version of the Duofold.
In 1928, Parker launched a range of slender and contemporary pens. These writing instruments were marketed along side the Duofold but was pitched at half the price. The pen cost $3.50 back then and initially targeted a younger demographic such as college students.
Students adored the extraordinary new colors and avant-garde design. In fact, in the late 1920's Parker's advertising stated that the three fifty was voted 'user's choice'. Over time, the three fifty pens became known as the True Blue. Today, pristine examples are as rare as they are beautiful.
Parker uses the contemporary design of blending cerulean blue and creamy white to make a 21st century replica of the exquisite True Blue of the 1920's. This magnificent writing instrument has a spirit of tranquility and vibrancy. The Parker Duofold True Blue has an 18k gold platinum plated medium nib.
Only 5000 pens were available worldwide
