Salutations From San Francisco

Hi gang! I'm not exactly new here, but I'm new in the sense that I've changed my affiliation. I formerly posted here as Director of Fine Writing Instruments for Bonhams Auctioneers. Bonhams is no longer hosting pen auctions, and I've moved on to San Francisco's PBA (Pacific Book Auction) Galleries, as Director of Pens and Comics (yes, I get to sell pens and comic books at auction for a living - dream job! :) ).

 

PBA has staged over 600 rare book sales since 1992, and I'm looking forward to selling great pens there! Bonhams generally enforced a minimum low estimate of $500 for pens, and PBA will allow me to offer pens valued at $200 and up, so our sales should have more breadth and diversity than my old Bonhams sales.

 

Anyone who'd like to receive our debut pen catalogue should PM me their full contact info. Anyone with interesting pens to consign should likewise PM me.

 

Cheers, Ivan

Congratulations on your new role. Glad you were able to stick with pens.

 

Is there a date for the first auction and a preview?

Hello and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.

To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!
