[SOLD]Waterman Lady Patricia Ink Vue Set
A beautiful set meant for ladies, but will work well for people with smaller hands. The Lady Patricia Ink Vue is unique in that it uses a breather tube to fill the entire barrel with a sac placed in the back. The lever is double hinged and in use functions similarly to vacumatic pump mechanism. This allows a small pen to have a large ink capacity. The diamond pattern middle section of the body functions like a ink view window hence the name Ink Vue. The imprints are superb and very crisp. The trim is excellent, but the top of the cap has light scratches. It is still very reflective and shiny. The ink view portion of the body is lightly stained, but when filled can easily detect ink level when raising it towards a light. The pen and pencil is personalized with a name, "Evelyn M. Carl." but is done tastefully and is not very noticeable on the fountain pen. The nib is the original Waterman's Ideal 14k gold nib which has excellent flex. Writes from a Fine to BB+ with ease, and with beautiful shading. The pencil has spare leads, and expels/retracts lead perfectly. Has a new sac, tested, and flushed. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 10.8cm capped, 14cm posted, and 10cm unposted. Pencil measures at 10.7cm.
