Waterman CF, France, c.1980´s, Argent massif ballpen. The C/F line was styled by famed automotive designer Harley Earl, it proved a great success. The 1950s were a bad time for Waterman in the USA, so most American C/F pens were economy models, more often than not fitted with steel nibs. By contrast pens sold by Waterman France were typically metal-covered, and into the 1980s competed in design, quality, and price with such higher-end pens as the Parker 75. This ballpen has the barley corn pattern and is made of solid sterling silver and has the French hallmarks both in barrel and cap, and for gold on the clip. It accepts refills Waterman flair or Micro can be easily adapted. NOS, mint never used in hard presentation box. #1599 $USD 130

Elysée (Staedler) bolígrafo, Alemania, c. 1995, producida por la compañía creada en 1925 por el orfebre Paul Dummert.     En los 80´s los nuevos dueños deciden lanzar su propia marca Elysée. Fiel a sus inicios el espíritu de la compañía era producir instrumentos de escritura que fueran joyas. La distribución de estos instrumentos la realizaba Montblanc. En 1991 Staedtler toma el control de la compañía con el nombre de Elysée Schreibgeräte GmbH. Debido a la alta aspiración de calidad el costo resultaba tan elevado que finalmente en el año 2000 se discontinuó la producción de plumas, por lo que se han convertido desde entonces en elementos de colección. Este ejemplo está totalmente realizado en bronce, terminado en fina laca china azul y adornos enchapados en oro 18 Kt. Actuada por giro, repuesto original Elysée (aún fresco). También acepta repuestos Parker. Nueva sin uso en estuche original. #1793 $USD 80
