$900

18
1930 Waterman Patrician LF in Moss Agate. The pride of the Waterman pen line! Waterman was late to the gate when it came to switching from rubber to plastic pens. They had invested a lot of time and money to develop colored ripple pens (olive, rose, blue-green) and wanted to recoup investment by producing in those materials. Eventually, they saw the handwriting on the wall and switched to plastic, introducing the now iconic Patrician. GFT. This model has Waterman’s “Tip-Fill” feature, allowing the pen to be filled with only the tip of the nib in ink, eliminating the need to wipe off the gripping section after filling. Medium, extra-flexible nib with an italic flair. A little brassing to the lever box, otherwise near mint.
$1400

19
1927 Waterman 42 Continental Overlay DOCTOR’s SET in Yellow and White Gold-filled. Alternating wide White GF Filigree bands surrounded by narrower rings of Yellow GF filigree.

Mint with original red grease in the pen model number on the bottom of the turning knob. Close-up photo of set.
$3100

Waterman Largest and Smallest Pens

21
1914 Waterman 20 POC in Smooth Black Hard Rubber. The largest pen Waterman produced. The POC model has a threaded cap. In 1913 Waterman introduced their first pen with a thread-on cap, the coin filler, with a “PSF” (“Pocket Self Filler”) model designation. In 1914 they added the threaded cap to their eyedropper models, with a “POC” (meaning “POCKET” pen) designation, like this pen. In early 1915, with the introduction of the lever, Waterman returned to the “PSF” designation. Features a huge #10 nib, used only for the model 20, this one fine. Holds an enormous amount of ink. Slight ambering of the cap and barrel, and barrel imprint wear (readable with a loop), otherwise near mint. A very hard to find pen!
$1850

22
1910 Waterman “World’s Smallest Pen” eyedropper-fill in Black Hard Rubber. Often called the “Doll Pen” because one rests in Queen Mary’s doll house, on the King’s Library Table. Just over 1.5″ long and less than 1/8″ in diameter, this pen was actually produced by Waterman as a way for their salesmen to spend time with potential new accounts. Their salesmen would visit a druggist, jeweler, shop owner, to try to open a new account. The buyer would inevitably say that they didn’t need a new pen line and were happy with what they had. The salesman would now offer to show them the “World’s Smallest Pen” as long as he was there (often alongside a Waterman 20!). This allowed more time and interaction together, and often resulted in a sale! Waterman then published in their in-house newspaper, Pen Prophet, that they would produce these for sale by their vendors as a special order item only. Near mint+, and extremely rare, especially in the original “coffin” box! Close-up photo.
$3500

23
1910 Waterman “World’s Smallest SAFETY Pen” eyedropper-fill in Black Hard Rubber. Yes, it has an operating spiral, just like any of the larger size production models! See above for more information about Waterman’s World’s Smallest Pens. Near mint+, and extremely rare, especially in the original “coffin” box! Close-up photo.

Waterman "7" Display Tray - Complete with Pens

24
1927 Waterman Point of Purchase Model 7 Counter Tray complete with the original 6 Red-Ripple pens, each color coded for it’s particular slot in the tray. Waterman color-coded their caps and nibs for easy selection of the type of nib the user wanted. This was their answer to the Wahl Eversharp “Personal Point” pens. There are three other colors not represented in this tray: Black (“Stenographer’s nib”)’ Brown (originally the same flexibility as Pink, but a shorter nib, later became a stiffer nib); and Grey (oblique, rigid). There may have been a “White” (“course,” which was Waterman’s term for Broad) but one has yet to be found. At this time other pen manufacturers were racing to the celluloid bandwagon to produce pens in colors which were in high demand by the public. Waterman had invested so much time and money in producing colored hard rubber pens that they waited until 1929 to introduce a celluloid pen (the Patrician). Left to Right (Waterman’s catalog descriptions in quotes). Purple: “Fine and Stiff. Makes a thin clear line with utter accuracy.” Pink: “Fine and Flexible.” Actually, triple-flexible. Perhaps the most popular and sought after nib available today. Green: “Rigid. Tempered to armor-plate hardness. Excellent for carbon copies.” Red: “Standard. Medium flexibility for general use.” In actuality, the “Red” nibs vary in flexibility from “Flex” to “Triple-Flex.” This one in medium, extra-flexible. Yellow: “Rounded. The tip is ball shaped to write smoothly in any direction. Suits southpaws.” Blue: “Blunt. An improved stub point. Makes a broad line.” This is perhaps a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to own a wonderful piece of Waterman history, along with six near mint pens, all operating perfectly. The pens are not available individually and you can select a different pen every day of the week (and have Sunday off!).
$4250

Soennecken Salesman's Sample Case - Complete with Pens

25
1950 Soennecken Salesman’s Sample Case in Black. Hinged, 14.25″ x 8.25″ x 1.25″ closed, with two latches. Contains 17 capped pens (no nibs or feeds) – none alike), a few pen barrels and 25 celluloid rod samples – none alike. The rod samples were originally tied together, but some of the string has not survived. A remarkable find, with some wonderful celluloid samples. A little wear to the inner fabric, otherwise near mint. Additional photo (other views)

Featured Pen - The Salz Brothers “Peter Pan" Pens

The Salz Brothers Pen Company (ca. 1918 – 1950) was founded in NY by Ignatz and James Salz. Salz initially produced high quality pens, but over time their quality deteriorated. Around 1920 their Peter Pan model was introduced (named after the fictional character of the same name). Initially a very small eyedropper-fill pen (first hard rubber then celluloid), it became larger ca. 1925 when they introduced the lever. The final models (ca. 1935) were larger yet. Salz eventually morphed into the Stratford Pen Company after James died in the late 1920’s. The greatest legacy of the Salz Brothers are their highly collectible Peter Pan pens in their fascinating array of colors and decorations. They often came with a tasse, for use with a dance card or a ribbon ring to be work around the neck. All the pre-1939 Peter Pan pens came a signed 14K “Peter Pan” nib, and all the 1939 pens with a “Warranted 14K” nib. Very few had barrel imprints (those which do are noted in the descriptions). Nib size information (F, M, B, etc., on request).

26

27
1920 Salz Brothers Peter Pan eyedropper-fill in BHR. Early production with the ribbon ring not screwed into the cap but attached into a round globe integral to the cap-top. Wide knurling both near cap-top and barrel bottom. Wide G/F cap band, engraved in Olde English “M.P.H.” It’s remarkable that such a pen would have been personalized for it’s owner! Near mint with original ribbon-ring. This is the only one of the hard-rubber examples with actually has a “Salz Bros (etc)” barrel imprint. Perhaps too expensive, or too cumbersome, to continue doing so.

Rare & Beautiful Early Black Hard Rubber Eyedropper-fill Pens

87
1882 Lancaster #7 “Government Pen” eyedropper-fill in Black Chased Hard Rubber. Warren Lancaster started in 1879, and many say his was the first successful fountain pen, a claim more commonly associated with LE Waterman. Interestingly, Lancaster blames the demise of his business on LE, following Waterman’s contracting with the Day Rubber Co for all its production. Early on his biggest customers were J.P Morgan Co. And the Federal Government, hence the “Government Pen.” Large #7 medium, triple-flexible nib. Near mint+

$175

132
1905 Crocker #3 Blow-fill in Red Mottled Hard Rubber (very rare). Yes, the user put the pen into his mouth and blew through a hole in the bottom of the barrel to pneumatically depress the bladder. Then, with the nib in the ink bottle, the user released the pneumatic pressure and the ink was drawn into the bladder. Eventually, Crocker supplied a rubber syringe (bulb) which fit over the end of the pen to replace the (unsanitary) use of the mouth. Unusual filling mechanism. When Seth Chilton Crocker left the Crocker Pen Company (owned by his father) and started the Chilton Pen Company (his own company), the blow-filler mechanism was replaced by another pneumatic filling mechanism using a sliding barrel with a hole in the end which the user covered with his or her finger – a big improvement (see item # )! This is a very early “Cone Cap” example, without cap threads. Fine, triple flexible “Warranted” nib. Near mint.
$350

These pens were probably all actually manufactured by CE Barrett and sold to several companies. Warranted nib (fine). The barrel imprint indicates a 1909 patent. Near mint. 1910 Faultless advertisement.
