The Unofficial Guide to Finishes
Used by Parker U.S.A.








The photographs below show finishes that Parker has done in-house at one time or another for one or another of their models. Not all are currently available; some are available only on select models; some were Custom Shop work. The general order of these listings: the metal flakes and metallics, the other opaque finishes, the transparent finishes, the satins and pearls, and other Parker finishes. A sampling of some unusual customer's work appears at the end. A diligent attempt has been made to provide the factory-correct names and color codes, but these cannot be guaranteed. Custom finishes and pre-US Music finishes may not have color codes.

[:)] I'll try to uphold the fine standard you set. Let me know if you notice anything here or in the LE guide that needs attention.
