14354: Mabie Todd Swan Eternal 44: black veined pearl lever-filler, 13.65 cm long, gold filled trim, made in USA; outstanding color, with surface pearlescence characteristic of a celluloid pen untouched for decades.

14361: Waterman 000 "World's Smallest": extremely rare miniature black hard rubber safety, 5.15 cm long, fully functional with retracting 14K gold nib; crisp glossy unfaded surfaces, bold barrel imprint. The usual form of Waterman's "World's Smallest" is a slip-cap eyedropper, which was described in internal company literature as a trade stimulator and novelty for dealers and salesmen. These pens, not intended for public sale, are rare enough, but the safety version is easily ten times rarer and to our knowledge is entirely undocumented in extant company publications. This is the first example we have offered for sale in over 25 years.

DATE: c. 1912 • CONDITION: near mint • NIB: fine • $4500
