Two Special Pens (and a partridge in a Pear Tree)

In the midst of a busy holiday season we are pleased to be able to offer a couple special pens for giving, either to loved ones or yourself.

The first is a 1993 Montblanc Writer’s Edition Agatha Christie. These lovely classically inspired pens helped put the WE pens on the map and this is an unused example. What you see is what you get. Just the pen and the inner book box. Medium nib, stickered. $1,400.




Next we have an OMAS Europa from 1992. This is the edition with a small diamond in the band. It comes  in the original lucite box, again with no outer box. This pen does not appear to have been used. $500





And remember that we still have a wide array of special holiday pens as outlined in The Penguin’s Holiday Bazaar and new pens coming in regularly. If you don't see what you want contact us.


Want to give a pen case with that special pen? We have high quality pen cases from MontBlanc and Pelikan at discount prices to go with those gift pens.

The Penguin’s Holiday Bazaar is Here!


I know that we are early. But if your holiday season is looking to be as busy as ours is an early purchase of a pen for the holidays may be in order and thankfully pens don’t go stale as quickly as fruitcakes.

This will be our last holiday bazaar on this website, as the new site is just days away from completion and will be live at the New Year.

We have a fine selection of pens showcased in the Bazaar as well as many others, too numerous to list. The site offerings remain out of date, so if there is something on your wants list that you do not see, please e-mail us.


And whether or not you buy a pen please accept our warmest wishes for a happy and joyous season.

This Parker 75 Rainbow set shows some use but is in overall excellent condition. See the earlier August  blog entry for details. $1,200


 This is the 2006 Annual Owners Club from Bexley, it is an iconic pen not just for its elegant long tapered shape, but for the vacumatic filler and large, soft nib. $450




 One of the hardest to find and iconic Pelikans, the gray marbled IBIS is an essential addition to any serious Pelikan collection. $1,250.

The Pelikan M700 Toledo is another iconic pen from Pelikan, especially the early ones. $750.



We still have a small handful of Kaweco 187 and 189 models, inquire for availability and remember the Kaweco Sports. These pens, from the 1970s include some models never released for sale. Prices range from $195 for single black pens to $275 for exotic colors and fillers. Inquire if interested.

This pen in the highly desired cobalt blue is another Pelikan icon, made on the M800 chassis for the jeweller. Increasingly hard to find. $695. SOLD


Delta Israel 50th Anniversary pen. Lightly used but with no signs of use. Complete packaging. $725
