RARE, and a real piece of fountain-pen history.
c.1914 A.A.WATERMAN No.20 Eyedropper,
complete with decorative gold band on the
cap - with un-engraved cartouche

(click on the images below for larger pictures)
A.A.Waterman
Not to be confused with the more famous L.E Waterman Co.,
who sued Arthur Waterman, resulting in a court ruling
that from 1912 onwards, all of this pens (and nibs)
should contain this phrase:

NOT CONNECTED WITH THE L.E.WATERMAN Co.
Although that part of the inscription is worn on this pen,
you can still just make it out (click HERE),
and the nib inscription is extremely clear (click HERE)

A.A.Waterman (i)
The clip is the original A.A. clip, marked PAT 30.12, and
the nib is the original MEDIUM flexible, though
it does have a small splits radiating from the breather hole -
click HERE to see that

£100 (a real bargain)
