Lever-filler pen, probably from the Waterman 52 line. This one has the "Pansy Panel" design, a floral and vine pattern engraved on the gold filled barrel and cap. Very nice medium left-foot oblique Waterman Ideal #2 nib. Excellent condition, fully restored and working perfectly. Personalized.

Type  Vintage lever-filler fountain pen 

Product Name  There is no number on this one, but it is very much like a model 552 (version of the 52 in a gold filled finish).  The pattern is "Pansy Panel."

Manufacturer and Year  Waterman, USA - circa 1920s (nib is from England)

Length  5-1/8"

Filling System  Lever filler (We've replaced the bladder and it's working very well.)

Color  18k gold filled finish, called  "Pansy Panel," engraved with vines and flowers, alternating with narrow flat panels. The section and end of barrel are black hard rubber.

Nib  Left oblique medium. The nib is marked Waterman's Ideal England 2. Not flexible, but the oblique/italic shape of this nib will give you some nice line variation. 

Condition  Excellent condition with only light signs of use. Barrel is personalized with "R. M. Snelgrove, Dec 29th 1923". There is brassing and a few small dings on top and bottom edges of the barrel, and slight dings on the top of the cap. Pattern is slightly time-worn, but still fairly clear. There are a couple of marks on the section, perhaps tool marks? No cracks in the hard rubber components.

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.
