Some more information about this Waterman 52 RIPPLE....
This wonderful pen dates from the early to mid 1920s. Made in the USA. The Ripple or wood grain effect is made from mixing Red and Black Hard Rubber together. Many pen manufacturers around the world attempted similar mixed rubber but the Waterman Ripple endures as the most popular. For good reason as Waterman were without question the most accomplished hard rubber pen makers in the world at that time. No one did wood grain effectbetter..... The model 52 is also highly regarded because of it excellent length and width. 13.6cm or 5.4 inch capped.
The pens condition is superb. It has no dents, scratches or bite marks etc. The colours are still rich and vibrant. The Yellow Gold plated clip, ring and lever are all excellent. It's Waterman, Ideal, Made in USA, Ripple etc barrel imprints are all deep and easilyreadablestill. Rare to find them so clean. Considering its age this pen is in super condition.
The crowning glory though is this pens Nib. 14K REG US. Number 2. Medium line with great Flex. Being medium line it is not as paper scratchy as the fine nibs are. So it writes smooth and fluid. Very user friendly.The flex allows for line width variation byapplyingvarying levels of pressure on the down stroke. Easily writes from medium all the way to double broad. Very creative line full of personality. Great nib. Highly responsive and full of spring. A joy to write with.......
The pen has been fully serviced and cleaned. A new sac fitted then re-assembled as it left the factory in the 1920s. All functions 100% as new.To fill could not be easier. Simply pull lever down 90 degree and then place nib in ink. Close the lever down flush. Take nib out of ink. Wipe excess. Done. Takes seconds.
Perfect as a gift or treat yourself to a quality vintage Waterman fountain pen.
