WATERMAN HUNDRED YEAR PEN, FINE EXTRA-FLEXIBLE NIB, COPPERPLATE SPENCERIAN
FULL SIZE 100 YEAR, RESTORED AND WORKING
WatermanHundred Year Pen, 1940s, in smooth burgundy celluloid with amber ends and gold filled trim. This is the full size model, slightly thinner than the oversize, and it has the 17-size nib.
Thisnib is fine and extremely flexible.It's possible to write with it without shading if you try --it's not soft enough to be distracting. With pressure the tines can separate quite a distanceand can make avery wide line.It'ssuitable for any pointed-pen calligraphy like engrosser's hand, spencerian, or copperplate. You can get really dramatic contrast between thick and thin. See the writing samples. It's also perfectly good for everyday writing.
There's a short crack in the clear amber material at the top of the cap, to the left of the clip, but the pen is otherwise in excellent condition -- good imprint, glossy plastic, no visible trim wear. The clear barrel end has been professionally replaced and looks great.
Restored and working with anew sac installde. Lengthabout 5 1/8inches.
The writing samples are made using the pen itself, dipped inNoodler's BostonBrahmin Blackink.The paper is a Rhodia pad with 5mm squares.
