Featured: Waterman Hard Rubber Pens

Lewis E. Waterman started manufacturing the “Ideal” pen in 1883, having invented a feed which solved the problem of vapor lock by successfully replacing ink in the barrel with air so the pen would keep on writing. Business was good and grew steadily. By 1901 the company was producing over 1000 pens per day. All pens were either black or mottled red & black hard rubber, so manufacturers adorned many with paint, metal, leather, pearl or abalone to differentiate one from another and offer the consumer more variety. Sheaffer then introduced the first plastic pen in 1924. While other manufacturers quickly joined the plastics bandwagon, Waterman resisted, having recently perfected the technique of producing hard rubber pens in color. Red Ripple and Woodgrain (1923) were the most popular, while other colors included Cardinal, Rose Ripple, Blue/Green Ripple and Olive Ripple. In 1927 the Red Ripple #7 pens were introduced, with a color banding system on the caps to identify the various nib styles available for the consumer. Unfortunately for Waterman, consumers flocked to the vibrant colors offered by others in plastic rather than to their rubber offerings. In 1929 Waterman introduced their first plastic pens, the large Patrician and the slightly smaller Model #94 lines. With these offerings, and others which followed, Waterman maintained a significant place in the fountain pen industry.

1927 Waterman Set of eight (8) Red Ripple “Color Banded” pens in a rare store display. See below for a description of the display and each pen. Since I don’t have a “White” banded pen for the display, I used a matching #7 pencil for the slot. Ten (10) items in total. For one day we will only sell the entire collection as one item. Starting the second day we will sell the components individually. Order individually if you would like (first come, first served), and we will let you know on day 2 if you got your item. Note that there is no slot in the tray for a “Grey Banded” pen, as it had been discontinued by this time. Whoever buys the full display can also have first opportunity for the “Grey Banded” below [Item #18] Just a suggestion: fill the other empty slots in the tray with pens from the #5 Red Ripple series, and perhaps a few from the Black Plastic series as well.

1881 Stylographic Pen Company In the 1870s, Duncan MacKinnon and Alonzo T. Cross created stylographic pens with a hollow, tubular nib and a wire acting as a valve.

1946 Wyvern The Wyvern Pen was named after a mythical dragon which is part of the coat-of-arms of Leicester, England, where it was founded in the late 19th century. It was a very successful company, eventually having a large factory producing pens, pencils and gold nibs. Just after WWII the Model 101 was introduced: pen and pencils covered in exotic skins. Three of these are offered here. Wyvern could not compete with the introduction of the ball pen, and it ceased pen production in 1955 (thanks to Lambrou for this information).
