NEWBURY.- Dreweatts & Bloomsbury Auctions, one of only a few major international auction houses to offer specialist Fine Pen sales, are pleased to announce their Fine Vintage and Limited Edition Modern Pen Sale which will take place at Donnington Priory, Newbury on 12th April. Additional consignments are still being accepted for the sale.

The auction includes limited edition fine pens from major collectable brands, such as Montblanc, Montegrappa, Parker, Pelican and Omas, as well as a selection of beautiful, vintage fountain pens.

For connoisseurs, a Parker, Duofold, Giant, 125th Anniversary, limited edition 18 carat gold and diamond fountain pen from 2013, number 4 in an edition of only 125 serves as a standout piece, carrying an estimate of £10,000-15,000. A fountain pen highlight from the vintage section of the sale is a Dunhill, Namiki fountain pen circa 1935 (est. £1,500-2,000).

Other star items include a Montblanc, De La Culture Arts Patronage Award, Henry Steinway, 888, limited edition fountain pen (est: £2,000-3,000). Montblanc’s annual Montblanc de la Culture Arts Patronage Award was established in 1992 and is marked in the Spring of every year by the issuing of a limited edition fountain pen in tribute to the most important patrons of art and culture. Other figures to have been celebrated by Montblanc include Peggy Guggenheim, Luciano Pavarotti and Sir Henry Tate.

A Pelikan, M1000 Sunlight, limited edition Raden fountain pen by Hoshukai, number 165/300 (est. £1,000-1,500) is a standout piece in the April sale. The pen’s striking colour is thanks to the traditional Japanese decorative craft called Raden, which is used for lacquer ware and woodwork. The pen is described as ideal for those who write a great deal, as it has the biggest ink capacity of any piston fountain pen on the market today.
