This substantial vintage fountain pen was made by Waterman and sold under the Asprey name in the late 1930’s. The heavy 9ct gold overlay on hard rubber has a smooth finish and, as you will see from the montage, carries a heraldic crest on the barrel. The cap has the ball ended clip of the period, the words “Asprey” Waterman’s Ideal Fountain Pen” around the cap lip and 9ct hallmarks on the cap and cap crown. The barrel is also well hallmarked combined with the usual Frank D Waterman initials and “Waterman’s” branding lower down. Condition is very good with only a minor ding on the cap crown. The filling lever also carries the Waterman’s logo. The medium point nib states “Waterman 14ct W-2A” and is a smooth writer and a pleasure to use. It weighs 34grams and measures 138mm with cap on and 175mm with cap on barrel end. So a quite heavy, long and elegant example of Waterman at their best combined with the Asprey reputation for high quality and exclusive design. It will sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection but will serve equally well as an every day writer. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. Filling instructions will be sent with your order. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you are also able to select your payment method.
