Lovely Parker ’51’ ad, (circa 1948-50)


I simply love this ad, which I have framed! I love all what the advertisement and the pen itself, stands for.
I love the expressions like: “Given and used by famous people”
(Well, not exclusively by famous people, as I’m writing with P51s on a daily basis…)

Or “It goes almost without saying that people with a reputation for good taste should write with a New Parker ’51’ – and should choose it as a special gift. For them, the best is natural.” (Well, it’s hard to top that sentence.)

Another thing is that the woman, Eileen Joyce, is a professional individual and a mother, not just having stunning eyelashes like in the ads of today…

Please drop a line, a comment or perhaps click for a “like”.

Addendum: If you read about Ms Joyce’s life, not everything is flattering and perhaps she wasn’t the caring mother her son needed, but I love the ad nevertheless…
