Vintage Waterman 52 1/2 Fountain. 2 Gold filled bands & a Sterling Silver Dragon Clip. Working (new sac) Pen Very nice nib! Please enlarge all 12 photos & read all the text for detail. Working vintage 1920s Fountain Pen 6 & 9/16 posted, Good sturdy condition, Made in U. A, this is the less common 52 1/2 model (as long as a standard 52, but narrower) – a Collectible classic pen and a very usable approx 90+ year old Writing Tool also :- It is ready to fill with ink & write :- – Its hard to see in the photos, But there is hard rubber fade to a dark brown with lighter area, So please expect this , the chasing is all visible, the imprints on the pen are Very clear as is the model number (orig RED still in this) on the end of the pen – I just installed a brand new quality ink sac, the feed has been ultrasonically cleaned, with a good working filling mechanism and pressure bar. Sterling Silver “Dragon” Clip as shown, Can be used as a pocket clip if you are gentle with it as it is delicate Sterling, (thin shirt pocket) but it is more of a roll stop for use as a desk pen – See the way the tail wraps around the pen cap, It fits perfectly over the remaining clean empty rivet hole that were used to hold the original pocket clip, the clip is hand cast Sterling Silver by Andy Beliveau (Famous for his pen related metal work – google his name:-). The BCHR Hard Rubber has fade as mentioned above, but, No Cracks, (perfect cap lip) no warp, no engraving, no chips. The Lever box came from a damaged pen, the box part looks a little beat, But it is sturdy (Not cracked) and with normal use will last a very long time. IDEAL #2 Nib, 14K , Nice smooth fine point with a light hand, you may get some tooth w/ pressure , it has Excellent Iridium tipping :- , very nice on Rhodia paper, not bad on cheap copy paper, The nib is not a wet noodle, but has very nice easy line variation / flex with an medium pressure, Very nice line variation, going from Fine to 1.4 mm max possible with out over flexing, you will have control for every day Very fine line writing with a light hand. It is a clean straight stress free early Waterman Ideal nib in very well preserved condition. The heart of the pen.. Deep channel feed = very good ink flow. Great for doodling , sketching , or every day fine point note taking and/or expressive letter writing :- and copperplate / Spencerian. The Paper is from a Rhodia Dotpad No. 16, the dots are 5mm apart to help you gauge the line variation. The inks are Waterman South Sea Blue & Diamine Monaco Red. The pen is just over 5 & 5/16″ capped, and a full 6 & 9/16″ posted. Fits my hand well when posted.
