SUMMARY

     Up here is a vintage Waterman's Patrician fountain pen, the large version of Waterman's Patricia, which was manufactured in USA circa 1934. The pen is the largest version of the series, jumbo senior, of overall length 5-1/2 inches. This Waterman's is a fine example, in handsome classic royal black, with an extra broad ART DECO CAP BAND. At the barrel end is a 'WATERMAN'S' GLOBE gold emblem. It bears a very large Waterman's Patrician 14ct solid gold nib. A new sac has been fitted. The filling system is in good working order. The pen is in nice condition, only a small area of scretches on the barrel; some some minor wears due to age. The pen has been restored and tested for full functionality.

     Waterman began its conversion from hard rubber to celluloid in 1929 with the introduction of the Patrician, pen of classic art deco design. The delayed switch to plastic, together with other reasons, caused Waterman lost ground slowly during the depression years of the 1930s. Patrician offered during the period was a marketing failure, and thus making Patrician one of the rarest and most avidly-sought pens now. Most of the parts on these pens are unique to this line of pens. This makes this Patrician even more collectible, as in such an excellent condition. This Waterman's is a classic elegance and has been produced to the highest standards of craftsmanship. This would make an excellent gift to treat yourself or for someone...
