Hi gang,


I hope it's ok to make this announcement here (I formerly made similar announcements here in my Bonhams days).


I was Bonhams Auctioneers' pen specialist through December of last year, when I sold over a million dollars in pens in Bonhams' final pen auction and attendant private treaty sale.  Bonhams decided to stop hosting pen auctions, and now I've landed my dream job for PBA Galleries auctioneers in San Francisco, as PBA's Director of Fine Pens and Comics.


My debut pen sale for PBA will be held in San Francisco on July 19th, 2018.  Bidders can participate in person, online or by absentee bid.  We're accepting consignments for the sale through June 1st, although there's been a groundswell of enthusiasm for the debut sale, and although I've only been on the job for two weeks, I've already accepted about $100K in consignments.  So there's a good chance that the sale will fill up early.


We're looking for great pens of all kinds, valued from $300 to $300K.  We're especially interested in:


  • Modern Limited Montblancs (in particular, Writers Series, Patron of Art Series, and Special Editions)
  • Early American eyedroppers, especially Parkers and Watermans
  • Vintage Montblancs
  • Vintage overlay pens, especially Toledo and Nielo overlays
  • Namiki pens (vintage and modern). Pre-war Dunhill-Namiki Emperor pens are of special interest


Anyone who'd like to consign should PM me, as should anyone who'd like a complimentary copy of the catalogue.
