A beautiful Parker 75 Premier Fountain Pen and Ballpoint in Chinese Laque, made in France in the 1980s.
The Premier was introduced in 1983 in a refresh of the Parker line, as the new top of the range pen and was in. production for about 10 years. The section and nib resemble the Parker 75 but the pens are longer and gave a facetted cap band and cap and barrel ends inlaid with black onyx. The cap bands have the Parker France imprint.
The fountain pen is 13.6cm closed and 15.6cm with the cap posted. The matching ballpoint is 13.1cm closed.
The fountain pen has an expressive French 18k medium italic (number 78) nib and converter. The twist action ballpoint pen takes the current Parker refills and I have fitted a new refill.
CONDITION: the fountain pen and ballpoint were not bought as a set. The fountain pen was new old stock when I bought it and I have inked it just once. It is in pristine condition with richly glowing lacquer.
The ballpoint lacquer is more muted and there are some minor marks of use but no brassing or damage.
