This is an excellent example of the famous Watermans Ideal Ink-Vue finished in Black with gold plate to the cap ring, clip and lever box. It was made in the USA around 1937.
The Ink Vue window is a little ambered but the finish is clean and the inscription is deep and clear. Overall the pen is in excellent condition with some minor brassing to the plated areas and light marks and scratches commensurate with use.
There is an engraving on the cap band with the name "P F Startin".
It has been fully restored and now works perfectly. It is the rarer double action lever filling model and the pen is fitted with a lovely Medium nib with the keyhole pierce hole.
We are very lucky here at Vintage Fountain Pens Ltd as we are able to continue to run the business from home. However we are taking every precaution to ensure that we all remain safe, all envelopes are new and come from sealed packaging, all pens and accessories are kept in sealed cupboards until required and all work areas are disinfected on a daily basis. We are still taking in repairs and, as long as the Post Office is open, we are able to turn them round very quickly. Let us hope that we get on top of this virus very quickly and we can all get back to normal. Thank you for your continued support.
