Here we have a vintage waterman's fountain pen. Unlike my other items, vintage pens are listed individually. What you see in the photos and videos is exactly what you will recieve. This pen is a lever filler.To fill simply submerge the visable part of the nib into your ink and open the lever on the side of the barrel. Then shut the lever waiting a few seconds for the inksac to expand again and draw up the ink. Repeat these steps until no more bubbles come from the nib when the lever is opened. Wipe the nib and start writing. If you wish to by some ink as well, our standard diamine range is especially made with vintage pens in mind. The 14k solid gold semi-flex, the most important part, is truly exquisite.
The semi-flex is lovely and gentle and the line varies between 0.5mm and 0.8mm with very little effort. The cap is 12.3mm wide. Unposted: 123.4mm x 10.9mm. Posted: 157mm x 12.3mm. Capped: 133.5mm x 12.3mm.
The barrel inscription is worn but reads that the pen was made in england, which holds true for the nib as well, this line of pens was released in 1945, so this pen most probably dates from between 1948 and 1953. The pen does show some gentle signs of wear.There is a subtle wear line from the cap being posted over the years, there are some very minor marks on the barrel, however with a pen of this vintage the wear is very light considering it is around 70 or more years old. The cap is in lovely condition, it is rolled gold and has no dings or dents. The inscriptions have virtually no wear and the clip rests nicely in place.
