About This Pen
This Eclipse makes one wonder why they weren’t more famous. It is very solid and handsome, in brown and red mottled celluloid (probably to emulate Waterman’s rippled hard rubber) with an elegant wide gold cap ring. Its 1920s vintage is obvious from the the gold clip, a single bent strip inserted into the barrel. The pen is in excellent condition, lever-filled and just over 5” long, with a few minor scratches that can be found with some examination, and a bit of missing metal on the cap ring. The clip and lever look like they might be 14K; the lever is marked “Eclipse”. The nib is marked “14K” in large letters. It writes a soft medium line with some flex. An unusually nice 1920s pen.
