This is another excellent example of the famous Watermans Ideal No.52 1/2 in 9ct gold with the Barleycorn pattern. The 52 1/2 is slightly shorter than the standard 52 so it would fit comfortably into a shirt pocket. It was made in the USA around 1925. and has the date October 16th 1924 engraved on the Cartouche. Cap, Barrel and Clip are all independantly hallmarked.
The pen is in excellent condition with no dings or dents. There is an inscription on the cartouche on the barrel "To Harry from Nicol" in a neat script. The hard rubber feed and section are in perfect condition. The clip is tight.
It has been fully restored and now works perfectly. It is a lever filler and is fitted with a lovely Extra Fine manifold nib which writes with a smooth line.
This is a lovely pen in excellent condition.

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.
