Product Information

WATERMAN 515 SET  - Fountain Pen and Propelling Pencil.   Near MINT!

Less common dark BURGUNDY/BROWN with gold plated trim - medium serrated cap bands - Made in England - c1947.

FOUNTAIN PEN - Largest of the Watermans of the period measuring 135mm closed.

Perfect barrel imprint 'Waterman's Made in England 515.'

Correct large 14ct Gold nib stamped 'Watermans 14ct England 5.'

Nib in excellent condition - semi flexible MEDIUM LEFT OBLIQUE - writes beautifully with good ink flow.

Lever filler with Watermans' quality boxed lever. Fully serviced and write tested. Perfect working order.

PROPELLING PENCIL  - perfectly matching twist action pencil which I don't think has ever been used.

It still has the original (encrusted) unused eraser. I can hear spare leads in the barrel but haven't investigated - don't want to risk damaging the eraser.

515s were only made in solid colours - black, blue, green and brown.

Believe brown is the least common colour.

In its original double Waterman card box  which is sound but a bit grubby.

The set is in excellent, near mint condition. Beautiful glossy finish and no brassing whatsoever to the immaculate gold trim.

Fabulous set with an usual nib. I haven't seen any better than this.
