Antique Waterman IDEAL Lever Filled Fountain Pen 

Hardened Brown Rubber 

Made in USA circa 1920’s

14k Gold Waterman IDEAL Nib - ITALIC (Semi Flex)

Lever Filled Fountain Pen: serviced and ready to write

 

Condition

The fountain pen is in overall good condition. 

 

The pen shows its age as the hardened rubber is discoloured to a brown colour, a common occurrence on these pens. The cap has two hairline cracks in it (see photo 9)

 

If you are looking for a new looking 'mint' pen this isn't it, but if you are looking for a delightful writer, this could be for you. The nib is a delight to write with! 

 

Servicing

The pen has been cleaned and fitted with a new inc sac and is ready to write

 

Writing Style

The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully. It has flat stubby / italic tipping, and flexes beautifully. It is certainly not a cursive italic, as its edges are smooth, but isn't a stub nib either. It is closest to an Italic and is a delight to write with

Please take a look at the writing samples, the pen flexes from fine to a medium / broad. Lovely!
