Waterman No 7 Ripple--rare 'pink' Nib & Band--iconic Fine-flexible-nib Pen

WATERMAN No 7 RIPPLE--RARE 'PINK' NIB & BAND--ICONIC FINE-FLEXIBLE-NIB PEN

NICE ORIGINAL CONDITION, RESTORED AND WORKING

WatermanNumber Seven pen, 1920s, red ripple hard rubber with gold filled trim,'Pink' keyhole nib and correct matching color-coded cap band.

Of all the color designations, the pink, though statistically not the most rare, isone of the most desirable.The pink color indicated a fine and flexible nib with long, tapered tines. As such, it's become a sort of mascot for those of us who lovethe sort of flexible nibs that can be used for spencerian or copperplate style writing -- other nibs will do the job, but thepink keyhole nib bears Waterman's assurance that it's the grade we want.

This is an excellent example of a good, unmessed-with pink-nibbed No. 7 Ripple. The color band is perfect and original, and is just the right shade of orange for an original pink band.All the original casein bands for pink nibs are approximately this color -- if you find one that's actually bright pink, it's a replacement, not original. The color of theripple material is good, showing minor fading. The gold filled trim is also good, with minor wear.There are no chips or cracks. The big central barrel imprintis visible but showing wear, as is the back end. The '7' on the barrelend is nice and clear.

The pink keyhole nib lives up to its designation -- it's fine and flexible, capable of very wide lines with pressure, good for any sort of spencerian or copperplate writing, or any purpose, such as sketching,where shading can be used.

Restored and working with a functioning sac installed. Length is about 5 5/8 inches.
