Waterman’s 452

1920s

About This Pen

Of all the Waterman’s 52 family pens around, one doesn’t often see a 452, which in this case is a full-length 52 in a sterling silver overlay. The overlay is complete except, in this style leaving the shiny black ebonite section and tassie exposed. It is solid overlay in the common Gothic pattern, not a see-through version, including an unused insignia panel. The pen is marked “sterling” in at least four places. Excepting only a very little bit of corrosion over the two breathing holes and a scuff on the underside of the section, it is in excellent condition. The nib, of course, is the proper Waterman’s Ideal No. 2, and it writes a full flex. This is a special, rarely seen pen that can withstand regular use.
