WATERMAN STERLING SILVER FILIGREE SAFETY 412 1/2 S ca. 1908-29

Model:
Waterman Sterling Silver Filigree "Trifoil" pattern 412 1/2 S Safety
Grade:
Excellent + to Near Mint
Nib Width:
Smooth Fine 14k nib marked "Waterman Ideal New York"
Length Capped:
5 1/8"

Comments:                

The Waterman 412 1/2 Safety has been professionally restored with new seals and could be used (if you have an eyedropper to fill it).  The pen shows no oxidation, and there are no dents or tears in the filigree.  The cartouche is artfully engraved.  This is an outstanding example of one of Waterman's iconic models.
Price:
$255 SOLD

 

WATERMAN 7 RED BAND ca. 1926-1930

Model:
Waterman 7 Red Band. 
Grade:
Excellent to Excellent +
Nib Width:
The Red (so marked) nib was called by Waterman "ideal for home and general use."  The nib is a smooth Fine-Medium width with modest flexibility.  The nib is marked "RED Waterman's Ideal U.S. Pat. Off."
Length Capped:
5 5/8"
Comments:
This Waterman #7 Red has just a small band of brassing on the cap band, none elsewhere.  The imprints are good and readable.  There is very little oxidation, and the contrast between the red and black ripple is excellent.  As is the case with the vast majority of these "color" pens, the original casein band indicating the nib type was cracked and has been replaced with a reproduction.  Perhaps the most "user friendly" of the Waterman color band series, this is a highly desirable pen.  Don't miss the chance to add this to your collection.
Price:
$350 SOLD

 

WATERMAN 55 Ripple  ca. 1925-28

Model:
Waterman 55 Ripple Red Hard Rubber
Grade:
Excellent 
Nib Width:
Very smooth Fine/Medium Flex 14K nib marked "Waterman Ideal Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. 5 Made in U.S.A."
Length Capped:
5 9/16"
Comments:
A nice example of a less common "50" series.  Strong imprints.  Brassing on the clip ball and a very thin line on the upper cap band edge, only noticeable under strong magnification.  Also a bit of brassing on the edge of the lever "globe."  Terrific Waterman nib will make writing a pleasure.    
Price:
WAS $250 NOW $235 SOLD
 

WATERMAN 515D Button Fill Demonstrator ca. 1940's

 
Model:
Waterman 515D Button Fill demonstrator in dark Blue celluloid
Grade:
Excellent + to Near Mint
Nib Width:
Smooth Waterman Broad Stub marked "Waterman's 14CT W3"
Length Capped:
5 1/4"
Comments:
A must have for the demonstrator collector!  Its not too often that one finds a button fill Waterman, as they did not make many models using this filling mechanism.  A Waterman Button Fill Demonstrator is even more unusual. The demonstrator has cap and barrel cut-outs to show the action of the section seating on the inner cap, pressure bar, and the button.  I'm almost convinced to keep this one for myself!  
Price:
WAS $235 NOW $205
 
 
WATERMAN CF GOLD FILLED FOUNTAIN PEN AND BALLPOINT SET  ca. 1958-60
 

 
 
Model:
Waterman CF (Cartridge Fill) set in Gold Filled Barleycorn, French made. 
Grade:
Near Mint
Nib Width:
Smooth Medium Width marked "18K 750"
Length Capped:
Pen = 5 3/8"   Ballpoint = 5 1/4"
Comments:
This was Waterman's first contemporary cartridge filler.  Originally produced in the U.S., production was moved to France in the late 1950's early 60's.  Most of the time one finds these nice pens, they are not equipped with a converter, and the present day cartridges will not fit the pen.  If the pen comes with a used cartridge, one can only fill it using a hypodermic needle.  However, in this case, the pen comes with the proper converter, so its ready to enjoy today.  The ballpoint takes a no-longer-available refill, but a cross refill cut down a bit will fit.  Both the fountain pen and ballpoint are near, if not perfect.  The only reason we did not grade them "Mint" was the fact that the fountain pen has seen ink.  A beautiful example of design that is sure to be enjoyed.
Price:
$175
