Parker Vacumatic

Vac

A unique filling system (nothing new is unique these days) allowing the barrel to become the ink reservoir.

The majority, and what we generally think of as a Vacumatic, were made in a laminated plastic giving what has been termed a "city lights" look. They came in a number of colours (silver, gold, blue, green, burgundy), sizes, and variations over their production life (1932 to 1948 in USA, and until 1955 in Canada), making them an interesting collection theme.

They have excellent writing properties with quality nibs, and obviously high ink capacity.
