Fine nib, Lever fill system.
This vintage fountain pen with its 14 carat rolled gold overlay is typical of the elegant fountain pens of the mid 1920’s. The rolled gold is overlaid on a hard rubber base and engraved with lattice pattern panels. Gold and silver overlays were used on basic hard rubber pens to provide a more “quality” item for the discerning customer. This particular vintage pen is a clipless model. Around the cap lip is the text “guaranteed 14 carat rolled gold”. Surprisingly the nib is a Waterman with the text Waterman’s Ideal Canada 2”. It has a fine point putting down a thin but smooth line on the paper. Condition is good, with some brassing as is evident in the montage. The cap when placed on the end of the barrel for writing sits comfortably and provides a pleasing balance. It measures 127mm with cap on and 161mm with cap on barrel end. A long, slim vintage fountain pen suitable to use everyday if you prefer a fine nib or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection. All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale. A further inspection is carried out before despatch. A gift box is available free of charge on request at checkout where you may select your method of payment.
