Parker may have dropped its popular Duofold nameplate in the U. And so, when the first all-new UK-exclusive model appeared just after the end of the second world war, it was called the NS ("New Style") Duofold.
These looked roughly like solid-color Vacumatics, but were button-fillers.
A Parker Duofold, especially a "Big Red," is one of the dozen or so pens that most collectors would place in a core fountain pen collection.
The Parker Duofold was introduced in 1921 in a very unusual orange red hard rubber called "Chinese Lacquer Red." The majority of hard rubber pens being made at the time were all black, so the Duofold stood out.
The Parker Duofold is a range of fountain pens produced by the Parker Pen Company.
The first model was produced in 1921 and was a large pen – 5.5 inches long when capped.
Matching pencils would come with either clip or ring, depending on the pen selected.
