Parker Thrift Time (Depression Era) Green Marble Set
Very pretty Parker Thrift Time (during the Depression, Parker introduced a complete line of colorful mid-priced pens in various colors and shapes) fountain pen and pencil set in green marble. These triple banded writing instruments are in excellent, restored condition. The fountain pen is a button filler with a fresh ink sac and 14K fine/medium point. One facet of this Thrift Time model is that both the blind cap and clip cap are the same material as the cap and barrel. The twist pencil uses a 1.1mm lead. An obscure, yet collectible Parker set from the early 1930's.
