Type  Vintage pen with a flexible nib that works beautifully. 

Product Name  Model 12 1/2 Eyedropper with slip cap

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, USA, circa 1910

Length  4-9/16" (the "1/2" designation in the model indicates a slender pen). Very small and slender, so please note this.

Filling System  Eye dropper -- see our filling instruction page for how to use an eye dropper.

Color Black chased hard rubber with 1/2" floral design gold filled  band on the barrel.  The band has an area that can be used for personalization (it is blank).  

Nib  FLEXIBLE FINE.  Desireable New York nib. It flexes easily and gives good line variation, but it is not  full flex or a soft "Wet Noodle." Line variation from fine to double broad. See writing sample below. Excellent condition with good tipping material.

Condition  Excellent condition for this elegant, petite pen.  The chasing on the cap and barrel and the coloration are excellent.  The bottom end section of the barrel has a number of little marks to the rubber.  They aren't quite bite marks but they are definitely visible.  The section looks great with just some light scratching, including some long thin lines.  The wide floral design trim band looks lovely with just some light scratching.  The back of the nib has a raised line (it does not appear to be a scratch or a crack).  The imprints are clear.  There are no cracks, dents or personalization.

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
