WATERMAN 52 1920s, WIDE GF BAND, FINE EXTRA-FLEXIBLE NIB, COPPERPLATE
EXCELLENT CALLIGRAPHY PEN, RESTORED AND WORKING
Waterman52 1/2, 1920s, in black chased hard rubber with gold filled trim. Wide band in barrel with engraved design and subtle initials. This is Waterman's long thin pen, the thinner version of the 52, with a No. 2 nib.
The Waterman #2nib has elegant long tines. It's a fine point and is extremely flexible. I'd call it a borderline wet noodle. Not much pressure is required for the tines to spread, and the degree to which they will spread is extreme -- you can get very wide lines on the dowstrokes.You can use it without shading, but it takes concentration.Suitable for any pointed-pen calligraphy like engrosser's hand, spencerian, or copperplate.See the writing samples.
Very good condition with no chips or cracks, typical wear and fading, some trim wear.
Restored and working with anew sac installde. Lengthis just under 53/8inches.
The writing samples are made using the pen itself, dipped inNoodler's BostonBrahmin Blackink.The paper is a Rhodia pad with 5mm squares.
