Type  Cartridge/converter filling fountain pen and Ballpoint Pen set, in box.

Product Name  Cotele or Master .... we're not sure despite lengthy research

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, France -- 1970s.

Length  Fountain Pen:  5-1/4" ; Ballpoint Pen:  A little shy of 4-1/4"

Filling System  The fountain pen takes Waterman refills, or you can fill via the included converter (it's a modern Waterman piston converter).  The ballpoint pen takes a slim Waterman refill that is no longer made (it's like the early Must de Cartier refills with the gently flared top).  There is one in the pen but it is out of ink.

Color Mottled grey lacquer that ranges from dark grey (almost black) to light grey (it's an unusual and pretty patterning).   Gold plated trim.

Nib  SEMI-FLEX MEDIUM Waterman 18k gold nib is smooth with lovely tipping material. It's somewhat flexible, with a little line variation.  See writing sample photo.

Condition  Excellent + condition for these shiny, cylindrical pens that come in their original Waterman's box with black velveteen and silk lining.  The fountain pen:  The barrel looks great with just some micro-scratching.  The cap has a light scratch to the right of the center of the clip.   The clip has some plating wear along the edges, especially toward the end of the clip.  The section has horizontal capping lines and some light scratching.  The ballpoint pen:  The pen has light scratching throughout.  The clip has a scratch mark toward the top.  For both pens, the gold end pieces have light scratching.  No cracks, dents, chips, or dings.  The imprints are clear.

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 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.
