Size: Lengthd - 132mm.
A gorgeous all gold filled Parker 61 ballpoint pen and pencil set all in their original Parker case. This set is in very good condition with the only damage I can see being the usual light, wispy surface scratches that these pens will pick up with any kind of use. Everything is still bright and shiny. The 1/10 12 carat rolled gold barrels and caps are decorated with repeating groups of vertical incised lines. Both caps have rolled gold top jewels and rolled gold Parker arrow pocket clips.
This is a cap activated retractable ballpoint. You press the cap to extend and retract the writing point. It is fitted with what is probably its original Parker T-Ball refill which still works fine.
The cap pulls off to reveal a barely used pink eraser in its little metal eraser Below this is the spare lead hopper. There are no spare leads with this pencil but I have fitted a fresh 0.9mm lead into the mechanism. It is a propel-repel pencil and works by twisting the cap. It has a rolled gold pint.
A textured black plastic box with silver coloured highlighting and Parker logo. Inside, the pad is made from red satin; the lid is lined with a cream-coloured satin. The box is very clean and tidy inside and out.
I have fully serviced this set. The pencil works well and the lead extends and retracts as it should, as does the ballpoint.
