Rare Parker 51 Factory Made In Store Demonstrator Desk Set
Here's a very rare (only one I've ever seen and I've collected for more than 35 years) Parker 51 Desk Set. This set appears to have been created especially for one of their retailers with the advertising plaque directly below the pen's vase. The plaque reads: "You are writing with the new Parker "51" pen with "51" ink - dries as you write." The Vacumatic filling pen itself has received a brand-new diaphragm and cleaning. There is a difference in color between vase and pen (see photos). The base also has two spring clips that will hold loose paper to the base itself. A great piece of ephemera for the Parker collector!
