Hepworth Comment

This Duofold International fountain pen was produced in the third quarter of 1997 (I P stamped). The Duofold International was based on a design, originally produced by the Parker pen company in the 1920’s. Launched in 1988, the International and Centennial models commemorated 100 years of Parker pens.
