This silver wedding vintage fountain pen follows a tradition dating back to the Roman times where husbands crowned their wives with a wreath made of silver on their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. Here we have the “modern day” equivalent of a Waterman sterling silver overlay fountain pen hallmarked London 1930. The inscription reads “RDW to MMW Aug.17th 1905-1930”. Given these dates, this pen (and its owner) must have seen some difficult, and some joyous, times. The sterling silver overlay is on a hard rubber base, as was the custom at the time. It is a long and elegant clipless model (measuring 170mm with cap on barrel end and 137mm with cap on) in an attractive pattern Waterman called “Line and Dot”. Impressed in the hard rubber area at the bottom of the barrel are the words “Waterman’s Reg.U.S. Pat.Off. Made in U.S.A.”. It was quite common for the hard rubber pens to be imported from the U.S.A. and overlaid by U.K. silversmiths following Waterman’s designs. The smooth medium Waterman nib states “Waterman’s 14ct England 2A”. This is therefore a replacement nib as often happens with pens of this age. Condition is good with some general age wear and, as you will see in the montage, some age variation in the colour of the hard rubber. This is reflected in the price. Its weight is 22grams. This attractive and elegant vintage fountain pen from a good “stable” is evocative of its era and a celebration of a long and happy union. It will serve well as an everyday writer and will also sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced by Vintage Fountain Pens Inc. and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you may select your method of payment. A currency converter is provided.
