Swann Auction Galleries

I am pleased to announce that beginning February 2012 I will be working with Swann Auction Galleries of New York to organize auctions of fine modern and vintage writing instruments.

For those of you not familiar with Swann, the company has 70 years of experience in bringing to auction rare books and manuscripts. Find out more on their website at

Beginning in the fall of 2012, Swann will hold semiannual auctions offering select fountain pens from the early 20th century through the present, featuring limited edition and luxury pens from the most respected manufacturers as well as historical rarities.

If you are interested in beginning or expanding your collection, or if you have fine pens that you would like to consign for the debut auction, please contact:
