This vintage fountain pen was made by Waterman in Canada in the early 1930’s. It is a No. 92 with the classic styling of black body and cap and gold fill trim of two decorative bands to the barrel and one to the cap lip. The Waterman ball ended cap clip has a stepped crown as does the barrel end. The model number is stamped on the bottom of the barrel. You will note that condition is very good and that the barrel and cap imprint are still very crisp. So much so that I was initially concerned as to its authenticity. However, having stripped it down and found the old sac inside mostly corroded but with the text “Waterman 92” partially evident, I realised that it is simply “new old stock” and so I offer it for sale. The medium nib states “Waterman’s Ideal Canada 2”. The barrel text reads “Waterman’s Fountain Pen Made in Canada” with the “Ideal” logo. It is a good size vintage pen measuring 127mm with cap on and 157mm with cap on barrel end. A handsome item, in very good condition that will sit well in a vintage fountain pen collection but will also serve as a stylish everyday 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 and a gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you are able to select your method of payment.
