A very special Waterman's eyedropper.

Posted by collectablepens . on

The very early Waterman's eyedropper pens were made at a time when the vast majority of pen users were still happy with dip pens and, presumably, needed some persuasion to fork out a lot of money for a new fangled ink containing device.

In about 1897, Waterman released a pen that was as much like a dip pen as it could get in terms of size, proportions, and feel:

This is the pen, a Waterman's 43, the '4' denotes the taper cap and the '3' is the nib size.  Made in hard rubber with a good degree of flex, it is  still a joy to use.
