The Closer look..!!!


George Safford Parker, the founder, had previously been a sales agent for the John Holland Gold Pen Company. He received his first fountain pen related patent in 1889.

Parker pens were frequently selected (often as favorite pens of the signers) to sign important documents such as the World War II armistices, and commemorative editions were sometimes offered.

This one is the one that my dad gifted me on clearing my 10th board exams with Distinction..!! A proud moment I re-live everyday when I hold it. 


  1. hey superrnickkk...thnx fr sharing!! didnt kno abt G.S. Parker!!
    n guess wt....evn my dad gave me a parker when I ws in Class many memories came rushing on reading this post...cheers :))

  2. @Chikki : hey Chikki.. Thank you so much..!! You are the first one to comment of my blog.. So you deserve a special THANK YOU..!!! :)

    Am glad the pictures made you nostalgic..honestly speaking this pen is something very close to my heart..!!! :)

  3. I loved the deep angle u chose to mainatin! Just 1 suggestion...try making the pic all the more darker and make the pen seemingly vanishing into thin air as it gets fuzzy on the farther end. SO its pitch black and a sharp silver line that would exhilarate the viewers! :)

  4. @Akila : Haaan... *damn* I was trying that.. but then I felt it just look too fuzzy.. so.. dint do it much..!! will try again :)

    and thanks da..!!:)
