er Sonnet Catalogue
- a work-in-progress at the Battersea Pen Home

We aim to bring together a catalogue listing the many different designs of the Parker Sonnet since its launch in 1993. The 'UK Availability' dating information is taken from Parker UK catalogues and price lists. This dating will only roughly equate with actual production periods. Availability may also vary in distribution areas other than the UK.

We will be adding more examples and information as we develop these pages further so what is currently here is very much a first draft. Details of errors and omissions would be gratefully received!

It's early 2008 and a new range of Sonnet designs is about to be launched featuring a chevron notch chiselled design in chocolate, carbon, gold and silver lustre finishes. A new Sonnet model - a compact Sonnet Mono ballpoint is also being launched in the same range of finishes. Information is on the Parker website

Given the popularity of the Sonnet, there are fake Sonnets appearing around the world and it's not always easy to tell these from the real ones! Valuable clues and advice are to be found in these articles:
