Vintage Pencils

Occasionally we have items brought into the shop by customers that they are looking to sell, and the vintage pencils above are the result of one such visit. The pencil at the top is a Sampson Mordan in sterling silver and dates from the late 19th century, and the pencil below is a magic pencil with no maker’s marks. Both items are in very good condition with good working mechanisms. They have now been included on our vintage pencils web pages.

Pelikan Souveran White Transparent Fountain Pen

New from Pelikan in October 2017, the Special Edition M605 Pelikan Souveran White Transparent fountain pen and ballpoint pen is the latest interpretation of the classic Pelikan Souveran from the Pelikan Pen Company. We think that the white – transparent barrel and all white cap in unison with the palladium trim and 18k/rhodium nib create an invigorating contemporary look. These pens are supplied in a special edition gift box.

Enamel Stephens Inks Sign

Enamel Stephens Inks Sign

A novelty Stephens Inks enamel adverting sign in form of a giant thermometer spotted whilst visiting the British Motor Museum, Warwick, amongst other examples of automotive related signs mostly from the 1940s. This is the most complete and largest example of this wall mounted Stephens Inks enamel sign that we have seen. A pleasant surprise during our visit when the Penbox pen shop was closed and we thought that given our interests in classic cars we would pay the museum a visit. If you visit the British Motor Museum look out for it on the central staircase alongside other advertising and display signs.
