Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 269

Back in May, Christopher shared a great story of how he found a wonderful vintage Parker' Duofold' fountain pen and mechanical pencil set at a flea market in Eastern Canada (link to post). The set was missing its original box --not surprising, given that it was 90 years old--so Christopher made a box for it.

Flash forward to last week, when an email from Christopher arrived with a little update: "Just the other day, Rene got me an original Parker Duofold case for my Parker Duofold Streamlined Senior set. So at last I have the full meal deal. I was happy with the case I had made for the set but really wanted the right Parker case that this set originally came in to finish things off."

What a great gift from (fellow VPC member) Rene, and what a great coda to the story of how this lovely vintage set was acquired! Many thanks to Christopher for sharing it with us.
