Ladies pens were usually smaller but the Parker Lady was of the same size and design as the International Classic, save the finish.In 1977 the Parker Lady was offered in laquered finishes, a design to become very popular on other models in the mid 1980’s.Ball pens were beginning to be really in vogue and Parker needed a pen that could both capture the high end ball pen market and function as a companion to the top line fountain pens.Parker decided to give the new ball pen a modename of it’s own and there were no fountain pens produced in the International Classic line.
Antique picture frames give us a way to remember our history and display them with respect in a frame appropriate to the era.
Hence a "47" marking on a 1930's pen indicate that the pen was produced in the fourth quarter of 1937, not 1947, which is a common misconception.
In the second quarter of 1938 this system was however changed to save production time, and a new date code, using a system of dots, was adopted.
