Item # S070513-03

Description: Prototype Premier 1-Pen Brass Desk Set

Price:           US $650


This is a prototype desk set for the Parker Premier using the Athenes model pen with its lined gold and black laque stripes.  The base is 4 inches in diameter.

Differences from the production version are:

Lacks Japanese Urushi lacquer over brass.

Shape is circular instead of stretched oval on a rectangular base.

Holder is black lacquer, not the same material as the pen.

This is even harder to find than the production version which was limited according to Parker's own 1988 sales literature.

Here is a close-up of the base which shows the facets just like on the pen.

Note that a fountain pen (FP) section will also work with this desk pen.  In fact, the two-pen version of this desk set consists of one FP and one rollerball pen.  I can sell you a new FP section, which are listed here.

Condition is excellent.

Other versions are also for sale: production 1-pen and 2-pens, brass prototype with 2-pens,
