This is a very rare Parker desk set. These desk sets were made in Japan and used Urushi lacquer over brass to give a refined elegance appropriate on the desk of high-level executives. 

The pens themselves are the Athenes model with matching pen holder and black tapered plastic end.  The working end is a rollerball (default), but can easily be configured as a fountain pen with the fountain pen section and nib.

The pen holder is formed from an Athens cap with an attached metal ball that fits into the concave magnetic base.  This Parker technique of mounting pen holders onto a base using a magnet was granted US Patent #3,120,216 and invented by Frank Meinhardt.

According to their own sales literature, Parker printed a notation that these desk sets were only "Available in limited quantities".  Indeed they are hard to find.

This particular desk set is in brand new and unused condition.
