In honor of the introduction of the Parker Duofold 100 years ago in 1921, three versions were made, each in a color that goes back to the beginning.
The intense blue Lapis Lazuli was originally launched in 1927, creating a lively and diverse addition to recapture market share in the now competitive coloured pen market.
‘Lapis Lazuli’ references the deep blue gemstone of the same name. To simulate the appearance of the gem stone, small blue and white flecks were added to give it extra depth and lustre. Lapis is the Latin word for stone, and Lazuli is derived from the Arabic word ‘Azul’ denoting the colour Blue.
