Up for sale is a Red Ripple Waterman 52 lever-filler fountain pen from the second part of the 1920s / early 1930s.
The pen is in good working condition and it has been restored with a new ink sac recently.
I tested it over the last 3-4 weeks and it does not leak, does not skip, does not blot: it does its job reliably.
- A 14 C gold #2 Fine nib. It really is a smooth writer that is capable of producing nice line variation.
- Tines open up nicely and offer nice vintage writing experience.
- Please see the writing sample below. It is not a wet noodle but a springy nib that is a joy to use.
- Original ebonite feed in red ripple colour.
- Gold band on the cap.
- Clear imprints.
- No cracks, no dents. The pen shows some signs of use: there are microscratches and the hard rubber has discoloured over the years.
No box or papers.
I tried my very best to make decent photos+video of the pen, Please check them as they are part of this offer and are the best way to describe the pen.
$275 $265 plus shipping (worldwide registered shipping with tracking number /signed for/ USD8 - insurance at cost if needed).
Paypal, skrill payment - either one is fine with me.
As always, I am open to hear reasonable offers.
I will ship within 24 hours after payment is received.
First email/PM with the message 'I want it!' gets the pen. Feel free to ask questions or make an offer but be aware that those do not reserve the pen.
