Lovely Rare Vintage Waterman's #55 Fountain Pen Mottled Vulcanite - Manifold Nib For Sale

Waterman’s 55 Fountain Pen – Mottled Vulcanite

Waterman’s Number 55 Fountain Pen – Mottled Vulcanite With Gold Trim – Made in Canada

Lever Filler – The pen is in working condition and has been fitted with a new sac.

For sale today I have this lovely rare Waterman’s number 55 fountain pen. The model number as stamped on the base of the barrel is 55. The pen is one of the earlier Waterman’s pens and has a strange mottled vulcanite patterning compared to many others I have owned. The pen is in good overall condition and is free from nay splits or cracks. The trim is gold plated but does show quite considerable amounts of plating loss on the clip and lever mainly. The imprints on the pen are clear and easily visible.

The imprint on the barrel reads:
PATENTED OCT 9 1906
WATERMAN’S IDEAL FOUNTAIN
PEN CANADA FEB 9 1909

The base of the barrel is marked:
55

The clip is marked:
CLIP CAP IDEAL
PAT OCT 9 09
18KT FILLED

The nib on the pen is rather special and very rare too. It is a number 5 large sized Waterman’s Manifold tip. It is in good condition and marked as follows:
MANIFOLD
WATERMAN’S
IDEAL
CANADA
5.

The pen comes housed in a nice Waterman’s box. The box is in rather worn condition.
