A very pretty Waterman’s 42 ½V red ripple safety pen with French hallmarked Night and Day sterling overlay, 1930.
The pen has a flexible medium #2 nib, a lovely smooth expressive writer.
Closed the pen is 9.4cm (3 5/8 inches), open 12cm (4 5/8 inches).
Condition: excellent; The red ripple body retains excellent colour and markings; the sterling silver overlay is excellent with clear French hallmarks. There is a hole just above the base of the cap overlay which would have had an overlay pin, often used in French overlays but it has no effect on the pen. The safety mechanism is smooth and the nib writes smoothly with lovely flex.
