Parker Sonnet (Laque Firedance)

This is a French made Parker Sonnet. The Sonnet is still made today (2020) but in less exciting colours. The Firedance design was produced from 1994 to 1998. This was my workhorse office pen from around the mid-1990s, replacing the stainless steel Parker Arrow Flighter. The date code shows it was made in Q4/1994. I subsequently bought a matching rollerball and pencil.
