Filler: Lever
Date c. 1930
Nib: 14K F #2 flex

I had to put a quarter in the nib shot, so you can get an idea how impossibly dainty it is! The nib is fairly flexible (though falling well short of what I’d call ‘wet-noodle’) and writes a gorgeous copperplate script, and puts down a nice smooth line without variance as well. Pencil still has lead, and these darlings are in such beautiful shape! With the original blue velvet box, with vintage Waterman’s instructions!
