Santa Fe Style Custom "51" made by Ralph Prather for myself
Permalink Closed


Here is a 1946, 2nd quarter Parker 51 that I sent to Ralph Prather for him to perform his magic on. The only thing I asked him for was to add Turquoise to my pen. It has; A Custom Clutch Ring, Stainless Steel, Turquoise, All Metal Filler Unit, Turquoise Cabachon, Cleaned and Polished, Hammered Sterling Silver Cap, with Turquoise Cabachon.

Man Mike,you know how to get me where I live. I love 51's almost as much as I love my sterling & turquoise. Every time I see your pen I'm reminded how much I want it for my own. It would be 'my precious'...lol.

Question, how did he do the stone in the clutch ring? Is it a stone that was set in adhesive, enamel paint or??

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that looks like Turquoise from the Sleeping Beauty mine.
