Size: Capped - 5 3/8 inches; posted - 5 7/8 inches.
This lovely English CT (chrome trim) set is in excellent condition and doesn't even look like it has been used more than once or twice. I can't find any damage on it at all. Both pieces have the original factory chalk marks still on their barrels. Both pen and pencil have dark blue caps and barrels with chrome plated trim and pocket clip.
The fountain pen has a chromed clip, cap lip, cap top button and clutch ring. The section is in glossy, unmarked blue resin. The 14 carat yellow gold nib is in a medium point and is also completely undamaged with a good large blob of iridium at the tip. The barrel unscrews to allow the fitting of either a standard Parker ink cartridge or you can use the original Parker ink converter that is already fitted to the pen if you prefer to use bottled ink.
The pencil also has a chromed arrow pocket clip. The cap pulls off and the original pink eraser looks unused. There are several spare 0.9mm leads below the eraser, and I have installed a fresh lead into the mechanism so it is all ready to go. This is a propel-repel pencil and is operated by twisting the cap.
I have fully serviced this set. The nib is very smooth and writes with a very nice wet, consistent and generous medium width line.
A very nice set.
