Spotlight on: Parker 75 Cisele

Cisele Parker 75

This exceptionally popular fountain pen range was launched by Parker in the USA in 1964 and, in its various finishes, was produced for the next thirty years. Parker called it the “75” following on from their usage of numbers to denote models which restarted with the “51”. The design, a cross hatched pattern in sterling silver with gold plated trim, is called “Ciselé”. It is said that the finish was inspired by a cigarette case made by a London silversmith. Around the lip of the cap are the words “Parker Made in U.S.A. Sterling Silver”. The cap crown and barrel end have a gold fill flat tassie. You will note the ridged area between the nib and the barrel which was designed to increase the writer’s grip. The advantage of the “75” nib unit is that the nib collar will rotate if you wish to move the nib to an alternative angle to suit your writing style – note the ruled lines and zero reference mark. This example, dating from around 1968, comes with a No. 67 nib that Parker list as being a broad point - to me it writes a more medium to broad line. The nib text states “Parker 14k U.S.A.”  and the feed carries the number 67. The section threads are plastic. It is fitted with a branded Parker USA squeezebox filling unit but you may remove this if you wish and insert a standard Parker ink cartridge (as usual with ink cartridges you will need to give the cartridge a squeeze once in position to start the ink flow). This stylish vintage fountain pen measures 127mm with cap on and 136mm with cap on barrel end. This is an excellent late vintage fountain pen in good condition and with very minor age wear. The pen is a pleasing weight in the hand and has a comforting click to the replacement of the cap on the barrel following use. It is suitable for everyday use or to add to a Parker vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you are also able to select your method of payment.
