We hope you are all staying safe and well through this difficult period. We are still in the shop nearly every day, adding new items to the catalog and shipping out orders. Please note that international deliveries may take longer due to postal cutbacks, and that postal service to some countries and APO/FPO/DPO addresses has been temporarily suspended (current list here), though FedEx and UPS service remains available at greater cost. Thank you for your patience!
The items below are listed alphabetically by maker, with featured items grouped at the top.
This group is small but focused, with some truly esoteric and hard to find models.
14645: Camel button-filler: black-veined green pearl marbled, 12.4 cm long, gold filled cap band, gold plated clip; a late production version without the ink-pellet feature, but retaining the distinctive and appealing logo of two camels filling a pen between them, appearing on both barrel and nib imprints.
