  1. You have probably seen the ad for our auction on 30th April here on FPN The sale listing should go live on our website early next week, and we will post the link here when the sale is live. The sale contains 266 lots of wonderful Vintage Fountain Pens, like the Parker, Vacumatic, Major, a burgandy pearl, circa 1934, shown below. Many of the pens are from the Andreas Lambrou Collection, as illustrated in "Fountain Pens Of The World', and were purchased by the vendor in 1996 at the Bonhams sale of the Lambrou collection. The sale also includes several other privately entered collections. The pre-sale estimates for the lots are very conservative, with prices starting from around £40. http://fpngallery/sml_gallery_111096_3_58.jpg
  2. I just opened an on-line store for vintage (pre-1960's) European fountain pens that have been repaired/restored. After posting the site on several forums sites (including this one) I received several messages regarding writing samples (which I previously had not included on the site, I have since uploaded a sample for each pen). I was curious as to why people find this important. I did an experiment with my wife and her parents where my wife and I each wrote a sentence with different pens and asked her parents to pair the samples to the pen. They were unable to do so, being as the writing samples were very different. I was just wondering if people found these useful or if they helped people determine what pen they going to buy? Thanks for any feedback and looking forward to your thoughts!
  3. So....I just won this really strange pen on eBay and was wondering if anyone has any information on it. At first glance, it looks like one of those paper umbrellas you stick into cocktail drinks.... Turn it around and---ooo! Surprise, it's a geisha! Unscrew it and---whoa, is that a nib? Pretty weird! But I liked the looks of it, so I got it anyways... The only info I can find is this other eBay listing for a similar "umbrella fountain pen", but for waaaay more: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Japanese-Minim-Fountain-Pen-in-Pink-Color-Umbrella-Shaped-Original-Stamp-1950/380450183140?_trksid=p2047675.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D17905%26meid%3D1503916414376392040%26pid%3D100011%26prg%3D8262%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D5%26sd%3D141066324596%26 And....a random blog entry with the clone of my pen here: http://www.rubylane.com/item/172908-JOY1440/Vintage-Celluloid-Fountain-Pen-Figural As far as I can guess, it's a vintage Japanese celluloid pen of some type. The nib reads "IDEAL Pen", and some further info can be found in the original listing here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vtg-Antique-NOS-Painted-Celluloid-Novelty-Umbrella-Fountain-Pen-Ideal-Pen-Nib-/141066324596?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT&nma=true&si=blKEkbymAjt6dnfBEH2abTwzINo%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc I'd appreciate some more information!
