15710: Waterman 52V in box: black hard rubber lever-filler with Italian 18K gold filled octagonal overlay, 11.5 cm long; overlay bears official Waterman agent's stamp and is of excellent quality with handsome engine turning, combination with nickel-plated lever typical. Most Italian-market overlays of this sort are found as safeties -- lever-fillers are much less common -- but this is especially unusual in having the characteristically Italian "18KR" stamp on the clip lined out and the cap lip imprinted in French fashion "DOUBLE OR LAMINE". Most probably this pen was made in Italy for sale next door in Switzerland, in one of its French-speaking cantons. The "585" imprint on the nib is also characteristic of Swiss-market Watermans. The nib is notably fine and long-tined, a true artist's nib. Original box is warped, does not close securely.

Notable long-tined artist's nib, marked "585" -- this set came from the same source as our 15710 so may well also have been originally sold in Switzerland.
