Brief History Of Parker Pen

The Parker Pen Company is a manufacturer of luxury pens and was founded in 1888 by George Safford Parker in Janesville, Wisconsin, United States.   In 2011, the Parker factory atNewhaven, East Sussex, England (United Kingdom) was closed, and its production transferred to Saint-Herblain, France. 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.  In 1894 Parker received a patent on his "Lucky Curve" feed, which was claimed to draw excess ink back into the pen body when the pen was not in use. The Lucky Curve feed was used in various forms until 1928. In 1931, Parker created Quink (quick drying ink), which eliminated the need for blotting.   Quink ink is probably one of the most iconic inks ever made which is still well remembered by many of this generation.
