-- Pen Heaven, an online pen specialist, have introduced the Parker Duofold to its range of luxury pens; http://www.penheaven.co.uk/
The Duofold first appeared in the 1920s, and is considered a vital part of any pen collection.
The Parker Duofold is one of the most recognizable and long lasting fountain pen designs. It helped establish Parker as a forerunner in the manufacture of quality fountain pens. Launched in 1921, the original Duofold was nicknamed the Big Red because it was made from bright red rubber and measured 5.5 inches capped. Born in the age of jazz and Art Deco, the Parker Duofold pen reflects the opulence and iconography of its origins. It is a pen of exceptional character and distinctive appearance. Duofolds remained popular in Europe up until the 60s and was revived once again in the 1980s as Parker’s flagship model. In 1988 Parker celebrated its 100th anniversary by launching the Duofold Centennial.
Pen Heaven offers The Duofold in both fountain pen and rollerball in a black with gold trim, or an amber check with gold trim. The fountain pen comes with an 18-carat gold nib highlighted with platinum. Pen Heaven also offers giftwrapping and a next day delivery option for a last minute gift.
