Hopefully some might be able to help me with an ID of my Waterman
My mother bought it YEARS ago, and I just found it after going through storage. I know it's worth something, but I'm having a problem identifying the *exact* model.
There are similar pens around, but they are much thinner and shorter because they've all got #2 nibs, and this one has a #10.
I've written to Waterman, but have yet to hear anything.
I have seen other eyedroppers, but they do not have the overlay. Apparently, according to one guy, there were only 3 made in this era? Who knows if that's correct.
Sincerely can't find any information on this one- or maybe I just don't know/can't find where to look?
Here are the characteristics:
- Thick/fat body and cap
- 6.5" long
- Warn off "20" with a circle on the base of the body
- Hard Rubber body and cap (probably black before, now looks dark chocolate)
- Sterling Silver overlay
- Trefoil Vine pattern (1907-1923)
- "Waterman's Ideal Fountain Pen" and "Sterling." engraved (crookedly) on silver
- Clip Cap on lower half of cap (not in middle like on other, shorter similar pens)
- "Clip-Cap; Sterling; IDEAL; PAT Sep. 26.05" engraved
- Nib #10
- "Waterman's; IDEAL; Reg US; Pat. Off.; 10; Made In; USA" engraved
If anyone could help me regarding this model of pen, it would be greatly appreciated!
