WA707 Waterman's Lady Charlotte (Medium)

Date: c1980s

Size: Length - 110mm capped; 139mm posted.

This very attractive Lady Charlotte fountain pen in blue lacquer and in excellent condition.  The Lady series of pens were made to resemble 1920s and 1930s model pens and were very well made out of brass which has been beautifully over-lacquered.  The cap has a slightly domed gold plated top with a gold plated cap lip band which bears the "Waterman" and "Made in France" imprint.  The barrel has a gold plated band near the end which is shaped to accommodate the cap being posted as without posting, this is a rather short pen, designed to be carried in a purse or bag.  Like many designs from the 1920s, the cap has no pocket clip either.  The cap will putt off to revean a very nice fluted gripping section with a nice wide gold plated band at the forward end holding the 18 carat gold nib.  The barrel unscrews to allow the fitting of a standard Waterman or European style ink cartridge.

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib writes very well with a good wet and consistent medium width line.

A very pretty little pen of a design that I do not see very much these days.
