Condition and information:
After the long lasting success of the Parker 75, which was surprisingly still Parker best selling pen in the 70s and 80s, Parker needed a new pen in the early 90s. Parker commissioned Hollington Associates from London with chief designer Geoff Hollington to design new lines of pens. Those included the Insignia and the Sonnet line. The new line was marketed as a precision-crafted, high-performance writing instrument based on an ergonomic design. The Sonnet line included many astonishing designs and finishes. This pen here was made in a "Lacquer Autumn Red" thick lacquer finish. The lacquer shines, the Autumn pattern changes color depending on the what type of light its exposed, simply amazing look. The pen is very heavy, made entirely out of steel, it is very well balanced and feels great while writing. The pen form factor is a the classic, cigar shipped, simple yet powerful. It has a distinct click sound when closing the cap, posting it its very easy as well, giving the pen the full length and balance it needs. The nib is steel gold plated, though very gentle on the paper and smooth, medium size, but precise writer, it does not feel stiff. An amazing and rare Parker pen, worth any attention. It is in mint condition with minimal signs of use. Comes with original Parker converter, but it can be used with standard cartridges. More about the amazing story of the Parker Sonnet development and history (as well as every other Parker pen out there) can be found on https://parkerpens.net/sonnet.html
