[SOLD]Waterman Lady Patricia Ink Vue Red Sunset $190
[SOLD]Waterman Lady Patricia Ink Vue Red Sunset
A beautiful Lady Patricia Ink Vue in the Sunset color(Red). Has excellent transparency to view ink supply. The trim has a little wear, but overall very good for its age. These Ink Vue models are getting more and more scarce, but they are great pens because of the unique filling mechanism. It allows almost the entire barrel to carry ink! This one has been recently overhauled and the filling functions like it should. The lever is used as a pump, and there is a breather tube like device in the barrel allowing a 95% fill or better. In my pictures its actually filled with water, and you can't even find the air bubble. That's how good it is. Imprints on the blind cap was filled in by previous owner, so I left it show off the imprint although in real life it is just a touch weaker than what it looks like in the pictures. There is a personalization on the top of the cap(check pics). The pen has no damage besides a little trim wear, and the finish is nice and glossy. Clip has superb tension, almost a little too stiff. The original Waterman's Ideal 14k gold nib writes from a XF-BB+ and is full flex. Delivering writing joy! Pen was restored using Richard Binder's Tutorial, and was leak tested overnight with the nib up to see if the filling bulb worked. It works flawlessly! Has a 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: 12.9cm capped, 16.1cm posted, and 12cm unposted.
