I am sure that I am not the only one interested in seeing other collections. I'll start with my meager, yet eclectic assortment.

Oooh, those bottom two are pretty. Should I know what they are? I've just finished my TWSBI and Lamy collections, looking for something not too expensive to go for next.

The two bottom trays are Pelikans. The next to the bottom tray are some of the "Cities" series (left to right): Picadilly Circus, Shanghai, Grand Place, New York, Piazza Navona, and Place de La Concorde
The bottom tray is the set of "Wonders of the World" (left to right): Niagara Falls, Polar Lights, Indian Summer, Sahara, Eternal Ice, and (2) Mount Everest.

Ah. Looks like they're out of my price range, at least if I want to get a collection rather than just one... Shame.

Great collection, but these are my favorites. I have a Polar Lights and would love to get a Niagara Falls someday. Is there a difference between the two Mount Everests?

I like the storage drawers too!

Esties are relatively cheap to collect. (And very cool pens.)

No difference between the Mt. Everests. One is to keep and one is to trade (hopefully for another Cities Series pen).

You're reminding me that I need more Pelikans in my collections. Glad to see the new ice pen (sorry can't remember the proper name) getting some love.

I really loved this post, I hope to see more, and if I can get a few pictures of modest quality, I will try to post my collection. :thumbup:

You sure do have allot of nice Pelikans, those LEs always did have more appeal to me than the Souverain series, thanks for the reminder that I wanted one! :rolleyes: :headsmack: :roflmho:

These are my favorites. The traditional Souverain style, with beautifully colored plastics, especially the San Francisco. They're all nice, but I really do like the colors of the San Fran. I'll try and get a few pictures up later, but nothing as nice as a M620, the best is a Pilot Custom 74, my new favorite.

Is the Shanghai pen actually faceted or is that just the lighting? I love the New York and Rome colours.

Ok, i'm going to try to upload a few pictures from my iPhone as my computer is having some downtime. These are just iPhone pictures and they are pretty dull for colour. My latest additions are the Doric set, the Orange Ebonite Ranga Custom pen, and the rippled Waterman 52 1/2 V which is in SUPER mint condition, can you belive the risk of $20 on ebay turned up a wet noodle I am afraid to ink now? Enjoy pictures of my pens, while I look forward to more of yours! :thumbup:

I am new to collecting pens, and brand new to fountain pens. (cursed with the left handed illness so I smear the ink across the page). But I have recently purchased an Indian Summer Pelikan. It was my beleif that it was part of the Beauties of Nature Series. Have I been fooled?

It is a vintage Aurora "Underbrand", basically a pen that was on the lower end and not bothered to be fully marked up with the Aurora name, to my understanding. It is a lovely celluloid, and the flexible nib is joy to use too. Thanks for the comment! :)

No, you have not been fooled. I mistakenly called the series Wonders of the World. The Indian Summer is part of the Beauties of Nature and not the Wonders of the World series. Your good.
