Size: Capped - 5 3/16 inches; posted - 6 1/4 inches.
A beautiful matte blue and burgundy Parker 88 / Rialto in excellent condition. This pen has been used but has absolutely no damage that I can find. A more recent Parker, these pens are of excellent quality and are accomplished writers. The cap has a burgundy coloured top button with a gold plated band and a gold plated arrow pocket clip. The "flights" of the arrow are nicely engraved and very long. The barrel also has a burgundy coloured end with a gold plated band and another gold plated band between barrel and section, also in burgundy. The nib is a very nice gold plated Parker in a medium point. The barrel unscrews to accept standard Parker ink cartridges or you can use the original Parker ink converter that is already fitted into the pen.
I have fully serviced this pen. The nib is very smooth and lays down a wet, consistent and medium width line.
A very well designed pen with excellent balance and feel.
