Parker Lady Pen, The

Watches specially designed for ‘her’, we can understand. But pens? Well, in those far off days when writing things out by hand was something people did on a regular basis, if you didn’t have a platinum-coated retractable roller-ball with a little golden clasp at the top nestling in the breast pocket of your lounge suit, you weren’t fit to take your place among the ranks of the go-ahead classes. But while a big, chunky, jewel-encrusted affair was fine for those deal-making men of affairs, what about the ladies? Parker to the rescue, with a range of pens slimmer and somehow more ‘genteel’, as demonstrated by Penelope Keith in a fictional ladies’ finishing school, recommending it as the ideal implement with which to sign massive cheques for jewellery, handbags, etc.

    Think the amount she signed on the cheque was for 1 million pounds (only). Nice, round number to go with, I suppose.
