Egads! Here is near perfection in a writing instrument! Our oversized Waterman Patrician desk pen is a stunner. Fully restored with a new ink sac, you will find this pen to be a dreamy writer. Its 14k gold nib is marked a size 7. You will love writing with its smooth fine-point nib that is just firm enough to maintain a consistent fine line but deliciously FLEXIBLE enough to readily spread out to 1mm wide! As far as vintage pens for daily use go, this one writes and feels nearly perfect. Unfortunately, it does not come with a desk base. That is its tragic flaw. If you have one, it is your lucky day. You will find some obvious staining on the hard-rubber section and taper. Light wear and brassing on the "onyx" celluloid barrel, which is a large 1//2-inch wide. 20.2cm.
