Medium Oblique nib, Lever fill system.
This lever filling vintage fountain pen was made by Waterman in England in the 1940’s. It is a "W5" with the classic styling of black body and cap and rolled gold trim of three decorative cap bands to the cap lip. The barrel text reads “Waterman’s Made in England W5”. The rolled gold clip also carries the Waterman branding. The nib is unusually a left oblique with a medium point. It reads Waterman’s 14ct W3”. Having tested it as a “right hander” I can verify it is very pleasing to use. It is a good size vintage pen measuring 128mm with cap on and 152mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with only minor age wear. A classic Waterman that will serve very well as an everyday writer.
