Up for sale is a stunning vintage 'Ideal 452' fountain pen produced by Waterman USA.
It has a sterling silver overlay case decorated with lines and checks, very much of the Art Deco period.
Case is marked sterling, with a vacant cartouch for personalisation. Impressed 452 1/2 on the base and Watermans Ideal pat May 23rd 1899 & Aug 4th 1903, Fountain Pen N.Y.
It has a gold nib which reads 'Watermans, Ideal, New York.
Measures 13.5cm (5.25 inches) long.
The silver overlay is in Very Good Condition with no dints. Not sure about internal condition, as it is very difficult to open and I don't want to force it. Will need a replacemnt filler cap as this is present but has broken at some point. This pen is sold as seen. (see pohotographs).
