  1. This is one of the pens I'll never sell, it is a fixture at the end of my hand, and I never leave home without it.. It would seem odd to anyone who's not a pen addict, but this pen has a personality...
  2. Now that's what I call a collection!
  3. That looks a good possibility, and seems they were working in New York too.. Still can't find anything which shows this model though. Google here I come!
  4. Hi Epson, It is about 3cm in diameter and about 8mm deep.
  5. Hi Kevin, Ask and thee shall receive ;) I couldn't possibly put all my pens up, but I'll post my favourite daily use pen to start things rolling, then make some selections for you all.
  6. Good afternoon AR... The makers mark appears to begin with AW.... With my poor eyes I can't make the rest out, and the W is the most legible of the letters. (Both upper case) The N°7 nib is huge...
  7. Thank you Newtimes. It is a lovely piece and the photos don't do it justice. I too feel it has an art deco look, but really know nothing else which could help identify it. France would be an intere...
  8. Thanks AR.. On the body of the pen (the ring just above the nib) there is a now illegible engraving. There is a small area half way down the body that appears to have been left for the engraving of t...
  9. I figure they require is to save more paper so they can tax us on the space it takes up!
  10. I'm a Brit and proud of it! Especially when the six nations tournament starts in Feb.. Mine's the only home round here to fly an English flag and resonate to the sound of "Swing Low Sweet Chariot"
  11. That's the guy.. I was unaware he collected pens though. It's always sad to see a collection being dispersed, but I hope his items will go to others who love them equally as much as he obviously di...
  12. John Loring collects smokers pipes if I remember correctly?
  13. Funnily enough I was trawling around the website a few days ago when searching for info on a Mabie Todd I still can't identify and which may yet end up posted here ;) Just for info, their web site ...
  14. I found that one earlier Hem... Decided it can't be the same maker as mine which won't be worth more than two farthings.. It probably came free in a box of cornflakes knowing my family! Cheers Martin
  15. And thanks for the welcome! I am a collector of fountain pens mainly from the first half of the 20th century, and mainly English or European (I live in France) Some of those too are difficult to id...
  16. Thank you Hems. Far from being a let down, you have given some pointers to start identifying what this is.. The nib is a HUGE N°7 Leroy W Fairchild, though I don't know that means the body is a Fai...
  17. I hope that the big guns shoot straight, and that the power of the pen can prevail!
  18. I hope he can.. I've searched high and low and even my friend Google can't find it for me!
