Commemorative Letter Opener - Waterman and Mordan - Chester 1908

This rare silver letter opener/bookmark was made for Waterman by pencil manufacturers and silversmiths Sampson Mordan & Co. and carries a hallmark for Chester, England 1908. You will see that the inscription states “Waterman’s Fountain Pen February 12th 1884 – 1909 plus the “Ideal” logo. It was made to commemorate Waterman’s 25th anniversary of trading. Waterman pens were little known in England before 1900 when Messrs. L.&C. Hardtmuth of Golden Lane, London became the sole agents, advertising them to the trade as “The Most Satisfactory Fountain Pens to Stock…”. In 1910, for political and public relations reasons, Mr. L.G. Sloan became head of “Hardtmuth’s newly built emporium, known as Koh-i-noor House in Kingsway (London) from where Waterman pens were dispatched  to worldwide markets.” Sloan had a close friend (Harry Lambert Symonds) who worked for Sampson Mordan & Co. which explains the choice of silversmith. The “pig” design had been used by Mordan since at least 1898 as it appears in an illustrated catalogue of that date. Why Waterman chose the “pig” rather than the “owl” – another Mordan favourite – is unknown.

It appears that this delightful letter opener/bookmark was created to send as a commemorative gift to retailers and prestige customers. I have seen one further example in its original Hardtmuth presentation case. This example, without its case and in good condition with some minor age wear (as can be seen in the montage) is priced accordingly. It measures 120mm long by 14mm deep. The pig stands 20mm high. 

A rare piece of fountain pen history.

This pair of George V weighted silver candlesticks made by A.J. Zimmerman in Birmingham in1929 are of a pleasing plain cylindrical form with crenelated rims. They are 160mm high and 110mm wide at the base. Despite the odd bump along the way to the feet they are in good order. As you will see from the images the marks are slightly worn presumably due to zealous polishing over the years but this is reflected in the price and they retain a certain charm and are a true reflection of the period.

This heavy and capacious Victorian glass and silver square inkwell with its unusual wrythen design was made by John Grinsell and Son in Birmingham in 1893. It has survived well over the years and was most likely a cabinet piece. The unusual combination of wrythen glass, the swirling silver lid and the well's weight and size (120mm) means that it will stand well on any desk and hold its own in any inkwell collection.
