Some Interesting Old Pens
May 19, 2013 2 Comments
I’m having a very busy day, pen-testing and making writing samples.
Thankfully my assistant is helping, as you can see.
There are a few interesting pens for sale in ebay today. There’s an eyedropper filler called “The Efficient” which the seller suggests might have been made by De La Rue but my guess would be Burge, Warren and Ridgley. There’s also a solidly well made pen called “The Golden Cockerel” which might be by the same maker. Finally there’s a pen described by the seller as a “Rare BHR Travelling Eyedropper”. He suggest that it might have been made by Mabie Todd but I don’t see anything to support that. Another Burge, Warren and Ridgley?
So a good day for rare old pens. I’d be after these myself but this week’s purchasing budget has been committed. So it goes.
