How long does the P.O keep items before returning them? It is 18 days in the UK.

 
It depends. If a parcel gets 'carded', i.e. the postman leaves a card to tell you to go to the post office to collect it yourself (sometimes lying about having attempted delivery to the address but nobody was home to receive it), the card usually states, "Please collect within five days." I think the actual operating procedure is to allow ten business days, which would be (if worst comes to worst) just OK if my local post office 'starts the clock' on the day I fly out.
 

OTOH, which pen display case did you get?

Hmmm, I have no idea why that link wouldn't work when I click on it, but if I just pasted the URL into a browser window it works.

Let's give each other due respect, and approach discussion rigorously. We're all peers and equals here as fellow hobbyists, with common interests in the acquisition and use of fountain pens, but not necessarily any shared values, and no obligation to offer each other moral support for one's narrative or position.

Lovely case in rosewood.  :thumbup:  Seems well made with attention to detail.

Would love to hear your views, once you receive it.

 

I am warming to the 151 pen and the 56 pen in black. Might treat myself to one of them next year.

The 151 is made of African Sapele wood whereas it does not state the wood on the 56.

The 151-pen display case looks great, but rather larger than I need for my pens (even though, with the additional twenty-odd pens I ordered in the past 48 hours, we'll be edging that number in total). I was also concerned about which wood is used in the 56-pen display case; and then, I'm not taken by the single knob/handle for each drawer thing.

A discussion with LCdC is warranted.  ;)  Ideally, the 151 pen in black.

Frankly, I haven't found LCdC customer service staff to be the most responsive, even though by no means did I receive poor service; they are just... fine. If Cult Pens or Bureau Direct in the UK had offered the same items on similar terms, I'd certainly prefer to have bought from them instead.

I agree although I have not tried Bureau Direct, yet.

 

No harm in giving LCdC CS a shot, might be a slow process but it's not an immediate purchase.

OTOH, will keep an eye out for something similar in the UK.
