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.

A silver Sheaffer Centennial Legacy or a designer hair slide?

Make a statement this Christmas at the office party with the all sterling silver Sheaffer Legacy Centennial designer hair slide. When my partner asked for an all silver pen I didn’t know that she intended using it as a designer hair slide, and as an accessory to her figural nib earrings.  Luckily, for the ladies out there who want a designer silver hair slide, we have them on offer at less than half price here.

An example of a Sampson Mordan “Torpedo” pencil in silver with engine turned barleycorn decoration has been imaged and now added to our Mordan vintage pencils webpage.  It is dated 1938, in its original gift box and in excellent condition.  The variety of designs of gold and silver pencils from S. Mordan was extensive and a few more examples can also be viewed on the same page.

The Pen Shop

The pen shop that goes by the name of Penbox is a little jem hidden away at the top of the Fountains Court shopping area in Epworth, North Lincolnshire.  This pen shop is proof that pen and ink are still loved by many in this age of keyboards and information technology.  In the shop customers stare misty eyed at pens displayed under glass and in show towers.  Displayed are fountain pens from Montegrappa, Visconti, Delta, Porsche Design, Caran d’Ache, Graf von Faber Castell and Pelikan in addition to the more widely know Parker, Waterman and Sheaffer.  The pen shop supplies pens for every day extended use, gifts, graduations and special occassions.  Visit Penbox the pen shop online or in Epworth, Lincolnshire.

Pen Flower Arrangement in the Epworth Shop

This is the unusual flower arrangement produced by a member of the Penbox pen shop staff in the Epworth shop when she was invited to take part in a charity flower arranging competition.  Having rummaged around in the used bit boxes in the stock room she produced a winning entry and helped raise £178 for a local charity.  Well done Debbie!
