Product Information

WATERMAN 52 Fountain Pen

SOLD  05/2019

BLACK chased hard rubber with wavy line pattern. As with most hard rubber pens there has been some discolouration over the years. No attempt to restore to black, prefer ot leave as is. Hand polished only.

Two 9ct Gold bands to barrel hallmarked for London 1920. One band is beautifully inscribed 'Mildred Holland.' Wonder who she was and if she enjoyed her pen? 

Pocket clip and cap band are gold plated. Lever has Waterman Ideal logo.  Barrel imprint rubbed but can still be read. 'Waterman Fountain Pen NY USA' with various patent dates.Model number '52' on end of barrel

Measures 140mm capped. 

Correct 14ct Gold nib stamped 'Waterman Ideal New York 2.' Fine nib in good condition - flexible - writes nicely.

Lever fill - fully serviced - new sac - write tested - perfect working order.

In Waterman Ideal single card box - not original.

Some discolouraton as mentioned, some original plate loss to cap band but has been replated.

Lovely looking pen, full of character. 100 years old in a few months and still going strong.
