Of special interest to Parker collectors: the centerpiece of the auction is the Anthony S. Tavill, MD Collection of Parker Pens.

 

Dr. Tavill was a well-regarded and very knowledgeable Parker collector and his collection included many of the most sought-after vintage and modern Parker pens, including many UK and Canadian versions. The auction features over 200 lots from Dr. Tavill's collection, including a rare Parker Duofold "Bumblebee" fountain pen, one of 100 made, as well as a rare Duofold Red DNA fountain pen, also one of 100. there are also three rare 1937 Parker Vacumatics with cap bands engraved "PARKER VACUMATIC".

 

The estimates for Dr. Tavill's pens are quite modest, and the reserves are generally half of the low estimates. For instance, the "Bumblebee" has an estimate of $1000-1500 with a reserve of $500. Here are links to the five lots mentioned above:

There are also dozens of vintage Montblancs, including a rare No. 7 "Long" safety fountain pen with snake accommodation clip, a No. 126 Platinum-Lined Meisterstuck in excellent condition, and lots more.

Sorry for the question but does a 20% buyer premium mean that, if you won the auction, you'll have to pay another 20% above your last winning bid?

Eg if I bid and won for 350 usd, I'd have to pay 420 usd?

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
