WATERMANS PENS

 

WATERMAN 18 PSF ca. 1915-17

Model:
Waterman 18 PSF (Pocket Self Filler)
Grade:
Near Mint
Nib Width:
Smooth Flexible XFine 14k nib marked "Waterman's Ideal Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. 8 Made in USA "
Length Capped:
6 1/8"

Comments:                

This very scarce Waterman 18 PSF in black chased hard rubber is an early version with raised barrel threads.  Overall the PSF designated pens were only made from 1915 to 1917.  They were Waterman's first lever fillers.  This large pen is second only in size to the 20.  During this period, one could order a pen with or without a clip.  This pen has an "add-on" clip with a pat. date of 1910.  This pen is near mint with little signs of oxidation and very crisp chasing and imprints.  The barrel end is marked "18 PSF."  A must have for a Waterman collector.  It will be a long time before one sees another pen of this model and in this condition.

WATERMAN INKVIEW COPPER RAY ca. 1935-39

Model:
Waterman Inkview in Copper Ray celluloid. 
Grade:
Excellent + to Near Mint
Nib Width:
The Green (so marked) nib was called by Waterman has a rigid point "ideal for manifolding" or making carbon copies.  The nib is a smooth Medium width.  The nib is marked "GREEN Waterman's Ideal U.S. Pat. Off."
Length Capped:
5 1/4"
Comments:
This Waterman Inkview in copper ray celluloid is the hardest to find color and to our mind, the most attractive.  This was Waterman's answer to the Parker Vacumatic, although it is far less common the the Parker.  The pen is as close to near mint as possible, with just a small amount of ambering in the transparent sections of the barrel.  There is no brassing that we could detect.  Note:  The "tarnish" on the cap's clip is dirt and it has been cleaned off.  The pen has its little gold filled globe insert on the base of the barrel.  This art deco design is one of our favorites.  Don't miss the chance to add this to your collection.

WATERMAN LADY PATRICIA SET  ca. 1936-40



Model:
Waterman Lady Patricia in red striated celluloid
Grade:
Excellent +
Nib Width:
Very smooth Fine/Medium Semi-Flex 14K nib marked "Waterman Ideal Canada 2."
Length Capped:
pen = 4 3/16" pencil = 4 1/4"
Comments:
A nice example of a less common version of the Lady Patricia series.  Both pen and matching pencil were made in Canada and so marked.  Strong imprints.  Some signs of wear, but no distinct brassing on the trim.  One of the harder to find colors.  This will make a nice addition to a Waterman collection.

$150 SOLD
 

 

WATERMAN 100 YEAR OVERSIZE  ca. Mid 1940's



Model:
Waterman Hundred Year in black celluloid ca. mid 1940's
Grade:
Excellent to Excellent +
Nib Width:
Very smooth Medium Huge Semi-Flex 14K nib marked "Waterman Hundred Year Pen."
Length Capped:
5 3/16"
Comments:
The oversize mid 1940's Hundred Year pens are vastly under appreciated as compared to other large pens.  The nib is the same size as a Patrician nib, larger than Parker's Sr.  This is the largest Hundred Year pen Waterman produced.  Just a bit of brassing on the very edge of the tip of the clip, none elsewhere that we could find.  The pen will make a great writer and a nice addition to a Waterman collection.

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!

WATERMAN CF ca. 1954-57
 
 
 
Model:
Waterman CF (Cartridge Fill) with GF cap, USA made. 
Grade:
Excellent Plus to Near Mint
Nib Width:
Smooth Fine width marked "14K"
Length Capped:
 5 1/4"
Comments:
This was Waterman's first contemporary cartridge filler.  Most of the time when 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 with bottled ink.  Another example of an undervalued pen, especially one with a converter.  A beautiful example of design that is sure to be enjoyed.
