What could the universal gift be? Ask any fountain pen lover, and they’ll probably say a fountain pen. Waterman’s Ideal fountain pen was a gift for everyone in the family, except the baby. This is a cute and comical ad! Appropriate name, calling it the “Ideal Fountain Pen.” There was a Waterman for everyone then …and now.
The Ideal Fountain Pen was not just a new pen that was launched: it was the pinnacle of design, construction, and materials. Waterman compared their pens to long standing wonders like the Pyramids and the Sphinx, suggesting they have stood the test of time and more. A better vintage pen would be hard to find!
