Vintage Pens: 5061: Waterman: 54
Easier to handle than a Waterman 52, this Waterman 54 is a bit wider to grip. Of course, it is the 14k gold nib that flexes that most people will love. You can write from extra fine to a little more than 1mm wide. It isn't a wet noodle, but it is a respectable flex with light feedback that helps you feel the paper and what you are doing. On a scale of 0 to 10, with 10 being total chocolate hazing, we'd say the cap and barrel behind the band are a 2. Nice chasing, clean imprints. No cracks or significant scratches. Fully restored with a new ink sac. The barrel band isn't marked 14k gold, and it is engraved with the initials "H Y K" in a lovely script. 13.5cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5054: Eagle: Caplox 24
Eagle pens are vintage pen treasures we don't often find. This is the Eagle Caplox 24. It is an elegant eyedropper pen. The section unscrews easily. You will write a flexi line from fine to about 1mm wide. Made of ebonite, the chasing and imprint are a little faded. We wonder if the cap is a replacement cap, as it has no chasing. It fits perfectly, so we aren't sure. There is wear on the cap visible in the photo. Click the headline for close-ups. capped.

Vintage Pens: 5052: Waterman: Patrician Desk Pen
Egads! Here is near perfection in a writing instrument! Our oversized Waterman Patrician desk pen is a stunner. Fully restored with a new ink sac, you will find this pen to be a dreamy writer. Its 14k gold nib is marked a size 7. You will love writing with its smooth fine-point nib that is just firm enough to maintain a consistent fine line but deliciously FLEXIBLE enough to readily spread out to 1mm wide! As far as vintage pens for daily use go, this one writes and feels nearly perfect. Unfortunately, it does not come with a desk base. That is its tragic flaw. If you have one, it is your lucky day. You will find some obvious staining on the hard-rubber section and taper. Light wear and brassing on the "onyx" celluloid barrel, which is a large 1//2-inch wide. 20.2cm.

Vintage Pens: 5050: Waterman: 0322
Grail pens such as this Waterman 0322 "Chased" pen from the early 1900s are intoxicatingly rare. What has become known as "repousse" in many pens Waterman called "chased" in its early turn-of-the-century catalogs. This taper cap with gold-filled overlay is a once-in-a-lifetime pen for us. Its 14k gold nib writes an extra-fine to 1mm flexi line, but the slender hard-rubber pen is so delicate, we don't really recommend writing with it much. Filling this eyedropper pen will be difficult as the section seems firmly screwed together and not wanting to separate. Engraved on the barrel cartouche are the initials E.H.L. You can see a couple bite marks on the end of the barrel and tip of the taper. Its biggest flaw is an upside-down "L" crack from the lip of the cap. Clear imprint on the taper cap. Overall, a very good vintage pen for its age. Click the headline for close-ups. 14.7cm capped.
