Fountain pens are a very popular area of the antiques and collectables market, with good examples attracting competitive bidding in our Suffolk auctions.


Few people realise that an inherited pen, or collection of pens could have a strong re-sale value. 


Highly popular makers that are in demand include:

  • Montblanc

  • Parker

  • Waterman

  • Conway Stewar

  • Dunhill  


The age of a pen is usually highly important, however, Montblanc is one of the names bucking this trend, as they continue to release very high quality and desirable modern pens. 


Furthermore, if pens are made from gold or silver this naturally adds a premium.
