Thanks for the link inkypete and a bit of company history too. I see there were quite a few pieces in the set.

Good sharing desk accessory chat with you. I do have one 1950's Pelikan ashtray in Burgundy. Since I don't collect ash I use it as a pen tray. Got any interesting Pelikans?

I continued on as usual. Not that many acquisitions, but I did land two Moore pens of a fairly rare nature to add to a mini-collection of that brand I have going. It was also more time for an upward tick in my correspondence, which I still consider one of the only true benefits of the COVID downtime.

Oh, and I started a thread on FPG to welcome members of FPN during the site downtime, as a place for news to be posted and people to stay in touch. Of course, that kind of thing doesn't get mentioned here, just the usual ragging on what goes on at another forum. It is what it is, and I won't ever expect to see a similar thread here if anything goes south at geeks, but you never know. And, as I mentioned in that thread, I made sure to thank the FPN team in a thread for all their work behind the scenes to bring FPN back to life.

Have a fine Sunday, play with your pens and ink!

I have the green Pelican ceramic pen stand, but thats about all. Have a few more things tucked away in the garage. Must get them out and remind myself what is there.

And it was very much appreciated. I didn't notice who started that thread, so I'm pleased you have mentioned it here - thank you.

It's all about the greys...

Good idea Pete. You are probably sitting on a gold mine 😄 There is a blue/green Pelikan ash tray that appears to match the Burgundy one I have. It came up on a pen paraphernalia site for over $200USD. I wish I could afford it! Mine cost me $27NZD at a local trading site!
