This is an excellent example of the famous Watermans Ideal. This is the 12 PSF (Pocket Self Filler) in Black Chased Hard Rubber. The pen was made in the USA around 1920 and is in very good condition with a good imprint. The chased pattern is crisp and deep.
The pen has an inscription near the bottom of the barrel, "John Shaw and Sons, (Salford) Ltd. Hydraulic Engineers, Salford"
The pen has been fully restored and now works perfectly. It is a lever filler and is fitted with an amazing Medium Full Flex nib.
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.
