Parker La Plume

1950s

About This Pen

This pen is a La Plume, the first true French Parker I know of from after WWII. Its short (11.5cm) overall length with full (1cm) girth clearly identifies it as a French pen. Aside from the French size, this La Plume looks like a black Vac on top, is a button filler like the Engish Duofold NS, and has a French steel nib. It is in very good condition, a user pen that cleaned up very nicely. The gold trim is probably plate, not gold-filled; there is no hallmark and the French were/are very strict about that. The nib writes a wet flexible line, a good writer. Note: I am asked at times about the interaction of my collection and the pens I sell. The answer is that the interactions are complex, the final decision often appearing to being left to the pens. This La Plume has almost gotten absorbed into my collection three times, but the other Parkers, both domestic and European, protest, so it’s being listed for sale to settle the dispute. If not sold soon, it will probably join the collection for good.
