I recently added some elusive Watermans to my focus on celluloid pens with white trim and thought I might take inventory as an aid to fellow collectors. Some of these are export models, some don't appear in any known catalogues, and 1-2 don't seem to be featured in any book I've seen. Still hunting that Nacre Patrician and a bevy of Patricias to round out the collection! I'm also aware of several export models offered in a range of marbled colors I'll probably never get around to (e.g. the 32 1/2, Juniors, and other glass cartridge pens).
If anyone knows of any other unrepresented colors offered with white trim, or if there's any other info/photos you'd like to share, please do chime in! I think I have the names of the more common catalogued colors right, but I haven't a notion about some of the others.
Waterman's 3/32 (L to R): Jet (black); Black Pearl (w/ red flecks); Steel Quartz; Green Pearl (w/ red flecks); Brown (mahogany); 3V Claret (red marble)
—Based on a photo I seem to recall from the Lehrer book, I believe the 32 was also offered in Green & Bronze – possibly Red & Bronze too? Has anybody seen either of these?
Waterman's 94 (L to R): Grey (w/ red flecks); Blue (blue & cream)
L to R: Waterman's Junior (Jet); unidentified model (no barrel imprint, possibly an Ink-Vue cap?); Ink-Vue (Silver Ray); Lady Patricia Ink-Vue (Mist & Sunset)
—Some Lady Pats, including several lever-filler and one Ink-Vue, missing here.
L to R: Waterman's Thorobred (32A-V in red/green stripe, brown/red stripe, grey/red stripe); cartridge filler (grey marble); unidentified model (red marble, barrel marked simply "Product of Waterman's")
—Does anyone happen to know the catalogued names for any of these last colors?
