Medium nib, Lever fill system.
This delightful “Ladies Writing Set” was made by Waterman in England in 1946. The 512v model (as it is known) was made particularly for the smaller hand. It is in a finish called Grey Striated with gold fill trim and, as you will see from the photographs, it comes within its original cardboard presentation gift box. The set is in good condition with only minimum age wear. The fountain pen smooth medium nib states “Waterman’s 14ct. W-2A” and the crisp barrel inscription reads “Waterman’s Made in England 512V”. The cap has a very decorative broad gold fill band and a “Waterman’s” clip. The expel/repel pencil is also in working order with a Waterman’s clip, the same decorative gold fill band and a barrel inscription stating “Waterman’s Made in England”. The combination of gold fill trim and grey striated finish is very pleasing. The fountain pen measures 108mm with cap on and 133mm with cap on barrel end. The pencil measures 111mm. The box comprises the base where the pen and pencil sit and the lid that has an attractive polka dot design. This fine writing set, in its original presentation box, is in very good condition with (as you will note from the montage) a few “scribble” marks to the inner left box panel and the minimum of age wear on the pencil. 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 at checkout where you can also select your method of payment.
