PLEASE NOTE THIS sale WILL CONCLUDE SUNDAY EVENING: 02nd June 2013 (BRITISH TIME)

Over the next few weeks I have for sale a very finecollection of writing instruments to include fountain pens and pencils. There are many fine examples on offer by a wide range of good makers to include Waterman Parker , Sheaffer, Onoto De La Rue, Conklin, Conway Stewart, Swan Mabie Todd to name a few in many finishes , colours and sizes.

I consider the images I take the most important part of my sales , they are taken in high resolution and will give a very good idea about the pen in question and hopefully show any imperfections where applicable. The table also gives a very general guide of the basics of the pen with regards to model, colour , nib, condition. The measurement of the pen is shown in the images with a rule. Below the table I also include a grading summary of the condition. This is my scale and I have rated the pen according to my opinion , this of course will always differ but hope this gives a general guide. If you need to know the exact measurement please contact me and ask me as many questions as you need if I have missed anything you feel important.
