Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Parker Centennial Norman Rockwell Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes its huge Parker suitcase style leather presentation box, limitation certificate and limited edition prints. The pen has been very lightly used and is presented in overall fantastic condition. Only 3500 were produced and this is number 0780.
Parker have a long, rich heritage of creating impressive writing instruments and the Duofold range is at the heart of this. With its incredibly detailed production process, including 130 components and 100 quality control tests.
This limited edition was released in 1996 as a celebration of 75 years of the Duofold and a tribute to the American painter and illustrator, Norman Rockwell. As part of this limited edition set, included are a number of prints, each with the same limitation number as the pen.
The cap features his stylised signature and the resin is a rercreation of the original 1920’s pearl and black, The Rockwell resin has more swirls than the standard pearl and black and is extremely impressive. Rockwell’s silhouette can be found on the cap crown. The trim rings on the pen are crafted from solid gold and the hallmarks can be found on the gold ring by the grip section.
The fountain pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib and it’s a cartridge / converter (supplied) filler, so you have the best of both worlds.
The important details are as follows…
With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
