Parker 51 Aerometric Fountain Pen and Pencil Set in Burgundy with Lustraloy Caps in the Box
A beautiful vintage Parker 51 Aerometric fountain pen and matching propelling pencil set in the box. The pen and pencil are burgundy with lustraloy caps. Both caps are frosty and have light grey jewels at the end. The fountain pen measures 5 3/8 inches capped. The plyglass is soft and the pen fills properly. The gold nib is a medium and writes smoothly. The pencil measures 5 1/4 inches and takes 0.9mm lead. It too works properly. (I cannot read the date codes on either one because they are faded.) The box is a bit worn inside, however, given the age it is in reasonable shape. This would make a nice gift for someone or perhaps for yourself!
