For sale is a Waterman's 7 Red Ripple fountain pen fitted with a pink nib. It is accompanied with a matching pencil and its original box.
Pen exhibits rich ripple color. It is free from cracks, repairs, or deep gouges. It exhibit some surface wear from use, most notably at the end of the barrel from the cap being posted. The imprints on the barrel are complete and legible, but show some wear.
The clip is firmly affixed to the cap and the lever box functions smoothly. There is no plating loss on the clip, cap band, or lever box. The nib, which is inscribed PINK WATERMAN'S IDEAL REG. OFF MADE IN USA, is a joy to write with. The tines align perfectly and both have ample iridium tipping.
I have inspected this nib out of the feed section and there are no cracks or repairs. The pen is fitted with the correct Red Ripple feed and retains its original casein cap band.The surface of the band exhibits fine cracking and it is split. You can obtain replicas, but I personally much prefer an original. Pencil Condition Pencil also exhibits good ripple color and is fre. E from cracks, repairs, or deep gouges. Barrel shows light wear from use, but the imprints are strong and crisp. The clip is firmly affixed to the barrel and has some plating loss on the ball. The trim ring retains all plating. There is tarnishing and plating loss on the tip of the pencil.
The mechanism that telescopes the pencil lead functions smoothly. It is important to note that this particular design raises the lead only, and if one wants it to retract it, the barrel must be twisted in the opposite direction and the lead by pushed back into the barrel by-hand. The box, which is marked "Waterman's" in gold lettering is in very good condition. The green colored exterior shows no discoloration or soiling.
The interior where the pens rest shows some wear. The fabric covering the metal holders that secure the pen show is frayed around the edges. Overall, it presents well and is a great way to display these fine objects when not in use!
