  2. This is in continuation of my posts to showcase some of Indian Fountain pens of yester-years. I have written a series about some rare finds and this post comes after a long gap. My other posts of this can be found here- Ritesharp Fountain Pens Ricoh Sabena-75 Swan VIP I had recently been to Alandur- an area in Chennai,for one of my friend's wedding. As usual I made some time to explore some local shops for fountain pens. Interestingly one of the shops had a collection of fountain pens from a brand called "Owner". I have heard of this brand but it was for first time I could hold a pen
  3. Fountain Pen in India is a cherished possession. Whether it be rich or pelbian everyone expects something from their fountain pen - whether it be writing for long duration (primarily Indian pens) or a flourished signature or just a status symbol (mostly from brands like Mont Blanc, Pelikan, Sheaffer etc). While the fountain pens from India hold another kind of fascination as being utilitarian but are always applauded for their design, craftsmanship and build quality (and also for relatively inexpensive price). Some from outside India even happily pay upto 800% premium on ebay to buy Indian p
  4. This is in continuation of my effort to record some old forgotten/missing brands of pens from India. Today, we will see another vintage Indian Brand RITESHARP. I do not have much information about this brand either, but have heard a lot about this brand. Its a rare find, again from the bag! My earlier posts are in this link.. Ricoh Sabena-75 Swan VIP This is a medium size pen and came in many colour barrels. The barrels were plastic and had a metal cap. The Cap had chasing design done on it and the clip is gold plated. The date stamp in barrel points out that this pen is of June 1961
  5. Recently I came across an acquaintance, an old man who was working as an accountant in a pen shop in Chennai. We soon started chatting on the various Indian pen brands and also of yesteryear. This is when he said that he is interested to give his pens, which he managed to keep in his possession for some time now, to someone like me who liked pens and invited me to his house. There he handed over a "bag", yes, it was full of pens and pens. Gratitude ensured that i did not even open the bag at his place, but on reaching home I opened it...there were about 400 pens..yes but about 90% were ba
  6. This is in continuation to my efforts to show some vintage Indian unseen/unknown/forgotten brands. I have already listed the first few pens a few days back here Today I have selected a Cartridge Pen, called Ricoh Catrofill. I do not know much about this brand too. Its evident that this pen was available in mid 90's and there is no much record of this brand. The Ricoh pens seems to be marketed by Thakkar Pen Mart of Mumbai...since the box says Bombay, I feel this box could be of 1995 or prior. An old Ricoh box The 1995 box The Label in the 1995 box...note the address Bomaby The
