9134: Waterman 402: black hard rubber straight-cap eyedropper-filler with enameled sterling silver overlay, 14.1 cm long; English-retailed, with the posting end marked "CALLOW OF MOUNT ST. MAYFAIR". Very clean, with no dings, or any tool marks to the posting end, though there are losses to the original inlaid white enamel stripes which have been restored with what appears to be cold enamel of a darker color -- losses which involve only the frontmost part of the barrel overlay, but the better part of the cap (condition otherwise would be excellent). Factory-made Waterman overlays with enamel work are extraordinarily rare, and appear to have been made only for a handful of ultra-luxe European retailers. This is only the second example we have seen in over 20 years of collecting.
