Bonhams Pen Auction
For the past couple of months, here, on the site and on Facebook, I have mentioned that I am doing some work for Bonhams but said little more.
Here's the deal. On February 17, 2009, in Los Angeles, following the LA Pen Show Bonhams will auction more than $1,000,000.00 in mostly new in the box Limited Edition Fountain Pens. Among the many highlights of the auction will be Dunhill Namiki Sakura Rose and Motorites pens; Dupont two, three, five and seven piece sets; unique creations from Grayson Tighe (limited to 1/1); Montblanc Black Widow, Dali, and White House pens; Pelikan Genji and 75th Anniversary; and far too many other Limited Edition pens from Aurora, Delta, Dupont, Krone, Omas, Parker, Visconti to even begin to list, more than three hundred lots comprising a total of more than 400 pens.
I can't even begin to describe the experience of cataloguing and describing them.
I hope to have more information about ways to acquire catalogues for this exciting event in the next few days. The catalogues will be grand, but, sadly will be limited and may be fairly costly. If you are interested in a catalogue, don't contact me yet but wait for more information.
