Waterman 92, 1920s, Green/bronze---extra-fine Flex Nib---restored, Fountain Pen:
WATERMAN 92, 1920s, GREEN/BRONZE---EXTRA-FINE FLEX NIB---RESTORED, FOUNTAIN PEN
Waterman92 fountain pen, probably late 1920s, in beautiful green and bronze celluloid with gold filled trim. Canadian model. A full size pen with a No. 2 nib, with distinctive lines around the clip edges,star designs around the clip rivets, fluted edges around the cap top and barrel bottom.
The nib is very fine. It gives you those excellent thin hairlines that flex-nib fans know are actually harder to find that flexibility. The nib is not extremely soft, but with pressure can get pretty wide, and is therefore a good tool for any sort of pointed-pen calligraphy like copperplate or spencerian. For everyday, it's great too, especially where a very fine line is called for, such as for fine sketching or for keeping the check register. See the writing samples below.
Good condition with no chips or cracks, but some wear, fading to the hard rubber section, and lots of roughness on the surface of the plastic. Still looks great though.
Restored and working with a new sac installed. Length is about five inches.
The writing samples are made using the pen itself, dipped inNoodler's BostonBrahmin Blackink.The paper is a Rhodia pad with 5mm squares.
