Waterman C/F Silver Plate? Moiré Fountain Pen

Near Mint

No Reserve !!!

The Waterman C/F of 1953 was the pen that introduced the modern plastic ink cartridge. Styled by famed automotive designer Harley Earl, it proved a great success and cartridges are still widely available, especially in Europe. The 1950s were a bad time for Waterman in the USA, so most American C/F pens were economy models, more often than not fitted with steel nibs. Pens sold by Waterman France, by contrast, were typically metal-covered, and into the 1980s competed in design, quality, and price with such higher-end pens as the Parker 75.

A Vintage Waterman Silver Plate? or Chrome Moiré Fountain Pen. 18K White Gold nib, engraved "18K - 750" T is also a hallmark at the bottom of the nib that I can't make out. It appears to be a Fine point . The cap band is engraved "Waterman ", and the barrel band is engraved "Made in France". Stylish nib design. T is also a Serial # engraved on the grip section, near the barrel. Measures 5 ¼". It has been inked. No filling system is included. Near Mint, the pen has no dings, dents or scratches.
