Waterman Lady Patricia Ink Vue – Super Flex (SOLD)

Waterman Lady Patricia Ink Vue – Super Flex  (On Ebay)

Here is a 1930s Waterman Lady Patricia with an Ink Vue filling system. The pen has a gray/ green and pearl marble body with a patterned, amber, semi-translucent ink chamber. Part of the pattern and color of the ink chamber has been altered by use and time, but it is still a striking pen in appearance. The ink vue is Waterman’s answer to the Vacumatic. To fill the pen, pull the half lever out, depress the lever, wait a second, and repeat 10 or so times similar to a Vacumatic. Ink is drawn into the ink chamber. I like this system, and the threaded section makes cleaning the out the ink much easier. The grey/ pearl cap and body are in good condition. The chrome trim is also in very nice condition with little wear, which is difficult to come by in this era of pen. The 14kt. Waterman #2 nib is a wet writing XF that really feels like a F due to its wetness. Flex comes easily and has a nice range going from XF (0.3mm to 1.7mm). It also has a nice responsiveness to it. It’s a great pen.
