Any ideas?  The vendor said it takes glass cartridges.  It is not a C/F, obviously.  It is French, but appears to have U.S. parts.  And the top unscrews as well as the bottom!  Why?  From a distance, I thought this was either an Italian pen or an Eversharp.  Was surprised when I saw it was a Waterman.  Approx age?  And what should I look for to fill it with ink?

 

It feels surprisingly good in the hand.  Closed, it is surprisingly small, but posted it is very well balanced.  And there's noticeable flex to the nib (I expect nothing less from Watermans).  Would love to get this going again.

This is the french made Waterman glass cartridge filler.

 

If the rubber seal for the cartridge is bad, Richard Binder shows how to repair it

 

And a nice overview from David Nishimura

It's a Waterman "Standard" (that's his name  ;) ), lady size (with a #2 size nib).

Very common here in France.

I'll take a look at the links Greenie sent me to in a few minutes.  But Xof, if they're pretty common in your neck of the woods, could you please recommend a source for getting the cartridge or other way to hold the ink in the pen?

The pens are common ... the cartridges, less ...  ;) ... but I have a few of them ... and maybe, if you send me a PM, ... a could post you one or two ... may be ...  B)
