Type Vintage fountain pen
Product Name Model 52 1/2 (marked on the end of the pen barrel)
Manufacturer and Year Waterman, UK, circa 1925. It's got what looks like a London hallmark, and the pen case is from a London Jeweler. The "C" part of the hallmark should be a clue as to the year, and the typeface comes closest to matching 1938 which seems a little late though possible.
Filling System Lever filler (We have replaced the bladder and it works very well.)
Color Black Hard Rubber with 9k gold textured barrel. Personalized on the barrel: "Melita Roachsmith".
Nib Medium 14k W2A Nib. UK-made nib has some give but no notable line variation.
Condition Excellent + condition, in original petite brown leather box that is a bit worn on the outside and that has ink marks on the lid portion of the inside. This is a slim, beautiful pen with a shiny textured gold barrel. The black hard rubber has faded slightly to a dark brown. The original black can be seen on the section. The gold barrel is in perfect condition. The cap is rough with a pebbled surface near the top. The barrel has a personalization, "Melita Roachsmith" that looks hand etched. The imprints are slightly faded but readable. The hallmark on the barrel is clear.
