Waterman Ringtops

I received this collection of Waterman Ringtops to sell on consignment. These are gorgeous pens from the first three decades of the 20th century, designed for women to hang on a neck sash.  They're closer to jewelry than a Senior Duofold, but they do write (often well!).  All these are lever fillers and they write as they should, given the limitations of the smaller ("lady-like") size.  The pens' owner had extremely good taste, and this is a good way to get  overlay pens in your collection without a second mortgage.  In the labels, 5xx means solid gold, 05xx means gold filled.  4xx means sterling silver. The 5 in the tens column denotes a lever filler.  And the ones column is the nib size.  "1/2" means a thin barrel, while "V" means a short pen.

Waterman 0552 1/2V Gold Filled Overlay

This gold filled Waterman overlay is in beautiful shape, not engraved with initials or a name.  the nib is a semi-flexible fine (actually, with any other maker I'd say the nib was flex, but this one is stiffer than most Waterman flex nibs). 3 5/8", 92mm

Price: $140 with Free Shipping in the US - New Price - $100 SOLD

Waterman 0552 1/2V Gold Filled Overlay

An excellent fine flex nib is the highlight for this overlay RT. There's quite a bit of brassing of the barrel, both at the posting end, and where the cap has worn through the gold-fill.  There's a pretty floral pattern indicia (the pattern surrounding where the initials could go - but there aren't any). The cap is in near perfect shape.

Price: $125 with Free Shipping in the US - New Price - $100 SOLD

Waterman 452 1/2V Sterling Silver

Fine flexible Waterman Ideal nib.  Sterling silver.  3.5" long, 90 mm.  Plain except for the engraved initials ABW.
