Type  Vintage eyedropper filling fountain pen from near the turn of the century, working well.

Product Name  Model 14 VS as stamped on the bottom of the barrel. This indicates that it is one of the three original Waterman safety models.

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, made in USA -- 1908-1917, it uses the pre-1917 numbering system.

Length  5-5/8 inches.

Filling System  Safety Pen, restored with a new seal. ((To use a safety pen, you uncap it, fill the barrel with ink, then operate the knob on the end of the barrel to extend the nib. The nib seals when fully extended, allowing you to write with an already ink-primed nib. When you are done writing, point the nib at the ceiling and operate the knob to retract the nib. Then screw on the cap and the pen is sealed.) Essentially all safety pens are also eyedropper pens.

Color  Black chased hard rubber.

Nib  MEDIUM Waterman's Ideal New York gold nib is smooth and marked MANIFOLD. It is quite firm and offers no line variation.

Condition  Excellent + condition. The black hard rubber has discolored but evenly so. The chasing has held up very well and is well textured on the cap. There is low handwear and no real scratches. The imprints are all clear and relatively easily read. The safety system has been repaired and is working well.

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.
