I thought it might be interesting to start a topic on the ways people display and store their their pens.  It may give some new ideas to people on that topic and expose some of the really interesting ancillary pieces of Wahl-Eversharp production or contracted production for some of the old store displays.  To kick it off here is one of my old store display pieces with some of the more interesting WAHL-EVERSHARP Vintage production items.  It's an original double display consisting of 2 cases one mounted atop the other. It is probably a late '30's, or '40s piece.  The lighting is original fluorescent so it can't be before 1936, the original US Patent date, and more likely it is after 1941, when GE brought the fluorescent light to life commercially.

 

And if pen furniture is not your thing, you might find some of the pens in this case might be of interest to you.

Syd, I have an Eversharp display case similar to your top one, but I think it is a bit later model, because printed across the inside is "Tune in Phil Baker in Take It or Leave It"  CBS Radio Sunday Night.  This was, of course, the radio game show that Eversharp sponsored that went on to become The $64 Question on radio and TV and led to The $64,000 Question on TV.  Mine is missing the upper pen tray, but I'm in the process of making a replacement.

 

I have the bottom tray full of Eversharps now, mostly Skylines but a couple of Pacemakers, and will add more when the upper tray is in place.

Beautiful display, Syd. Yours is very nice too, BamaPen.

 

Unfortunately, I just don´t have the space for such displays, so I keep my Wahls here

It's like a fountain pen jukebox! Very jealous, though my one little Skyline would look a little lonely in a case like that. I guess that means I just have to buy more Skylines, right?

Nice  displays in the photos. I like to see how the other pen companies showed off their pens for sale.

I do the same thing with that other brand [ Parker ]. Trying to find space for the large display cases can be a

challenge. I have pens displayed in all my 4 rooms with the exception of the bathroom.

OK - got a new Eversharp case after my original post, so I had to post an update.
