[SOLD]Waterman 52 1/2v Woodgrain Ripple Ringtop
This Waterman Woodgrain Ripple is the predecessor to their later more artificial ripple pattern. A more natural woodsy look is very pleasant to the eyes. These little ringtops are highly desirable and very collected. The gold trim on this one is very good, and excellent at the lever section and Ideal Globe. Imprints are very good on the barrel, and still has model imprint on butt end in good condition. The coloring is very good showing minimal color loss, and you can't even tell unless looking at the capped vs uncapped area to see a slight color difference. Threads are excellent and cap screws on/off smoothly and tight. The original Waterman's 14k Ideal heart hole nib is a smooth and wet writer. With Superflex capabilities that write from a F-BB+ giving huge line variation when desired. No cracks, bite marks, or any damage. Just slight wear from being almost a century old. New sac, and ready for a new home. Please check pics for a better description. Writing sample is done on .5cm light grid print on HP 24lb laserjet paper. Measurements are: 11cm capped, 14cm posted, and 10.4cm unposted.
