i have recently purchased this waterman eyedropper pen. In full working order! I have been doing some reasearch and belive the age to be between 1910 and 1920. I would appreciate any information that you can tell me about this pen and if possible narrow down the age of the pen? Also what do you belive the value of this pen would be?


Thanks in advance

It's a Waterman 12 eyedropper in BHR (black hard rubber).

I would say it is for sure pre-1917, most likely from the early 1910s. Waterman 12 BCHR seems accurate as model number.

Nice pen. Enjoy!


I'm looking for a smooth (not chased) black cap (only) for a 12 size Waterman.

If anyone has a spare knocking about in the parts box, please let me know.

You ask about the value... If it is very flexy and you take some good pictures of how it writes you may get a very fair price on e-bay. Its looks, however, are quite like a number of pens from around 1910 - they do have their special humble beauty, and I personally like them, but they are not very catchy.
