Type   Vintage fountain desk pen in very nice working condition, lever filler.

Product Name   Patrician

Manufacturer and Year   Waterman, USA, late 1920s

Length   Full size, 8"

Filling System   Lever filler. We've put a new sac in the pen and the filling system works well.

Color   The "Onyx" color was originally a light caramel marbled color with red veins, but it has ambered a little so the caramel color is darker. We have seen these onyx Patrician desk pens with brick red sections and tapers, which is the accent color you find on the onyx Patrician and Lady Patrician fountain pens. However on this desk pen the accent color is black, so those components may be replacements as many Patrician colors had black accent pieces. 

Nib   FINE flexible nib is a gold Waterman nib from a Hundred Year Pen. Almost full flex, with excellent line variation. See writing sample.

Condition   Excellent condition with no cracks. Light wear only, Very light brassing on the lever box.

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.
