Product Information

WATERMAN 54 Fountain Pen

SOLD  08/2019

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 to leave as is. Hand polished only.

Rivitted pocket clip stamped 'Clip-cap' with Ideal logo and '18k Filled' at the top.

 

Beautiful decorated wide barrel band with scroll pattern and blank cartouche. I assume that this is also 18kt Gold Filled as I cannot see any hallmark.

Clear barrel imprint 'Waterman's Ideal Fountain Pen NY USA' with various patent dates. Model number '54' on end of barrel.

Boxed filling lever with Ideal logo on round lever end.

Measures 5 1/2ins capped, (approx 140mm.) Made in USA , early 1920s.

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

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

In Waternan's Ideal single card box. (Not original.)

Some discolouration as mentioned, but otherwise really lovely condition particularly bearing in mind that it will shortly be 100 years old.

Lovely looking pen, full of character.
