Hello Fountain pen friends!

My name is Liselotte and I am a pen collector from Sweden. My first fountain pens was the white Waterman, made in plastic. I had both the black and the blue one. After those, I had a Lime Green Cross Solo, some Lamy Safari which are Dark Lilac, Lime Green, Red (with Coral Red front), Black, I also have two Waterman Hemisphere, one in matte steel and one in black and also the Expert II in Red Laque. I also have the Parker Sonett in Steel and Parker Frontier in blue plastic. I also have an unknown brand FP, which is a memory from my father. It was the pens (Yes a ballpoint in the same design too) that he bought for his first salary.

Welcome,  Liselotte  !   

 

Wonderful that you have an heirloom pen set from your father.  I hope you will share photographs, someday.  Is your father's fountain pen still in service ?  I have my father's Parker 51.  I still use it regularly.  It is an excellent way to honor his memory.  

 

Write with joy.

Hello Liselotte, and welcome, from a fellow Swede!

 

I'm living in Tullinge, just south of Stockholm. Just some weeks ago we had an informal pen-meeting in Stockholm. Perhaps you could join us next time?

Enjoy your time here.

There are a lot of knowledgeable people here that share their knowledge freely.
