Antique fountain pen titled "WATERMAN'S IDEAL FOUNTAIN PEN" plus the original box for the pen with advertising for Waterman's Ideal Ink.
FOUNTAIN PEN: Fountain pen with original cap has two 3/8 inch wide gold bands on body, clip that is gold or gold filled, and 14KT nib. Pen body is incised with "PAT'D. 1884 May 23, 1899 / WATERMAN'S IDEAL FOUNTAIN / PEN N.Y. U.S.A. & AUG. 4, 1903." Gold bands are gold or gold filled with matching Victorian incised designs. Clip has "CLIP-CAP IDEAL" and is tight to body as designed. Fill lever is marked on outside as "IDEAL" and on inside it reads "18 KT GOLD FILLED." Fill lever seems loose and not lifting properly; needs some attention in this spot. Nib reads "WARRANTED 14KT 5". Nib is in good condition with no damage or excessive wear. At end of body it reads in incised lettering "14 PSF." Cap in good condition; screws on properly. Overall length with cap is 5-3/8 inches; with cap in writing position length is 6-5/8 inches.
BOX:Original box for the pen has black cloth exterior and purple felt lining. Inside top of box has three-color paper advertising for "Waterman's Ideal Ink" showing seven bottles of ink for business and home use. Clip to keep box closed seems to be absent; otherwise good condition.
This exact pen was shown in a Waterman's 1903 advertisement recently sold in another sale. See item number 370357576946 at Very unusual to have the box for a pen of over 100 years old.
