A Number of Available Boxes

Since I have been working hard just to keep up with incoming orders, I have not had much opportunity to finish boxes for sale.  I have decided to post pictures of some of my inventory so that you can pick the one(s) you want and let me finish them to your specifications.

If you see a box here that interests you, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and let me know.  We will work out the price, interior details, and an agreed delivery date.

Here they are in no particular order.  Any prices mentioned do not include shipping.  Pictures of finished boxes are previous sales.

LFD Chapter I and Chapter II.  The only difference is the color.  I have two of the Chapter I boxes and one of the Chapter II.  These are $25 for one or $20 each for two or more.

Here are four different vertical pen boxes.  Capacity ranges from six to sixteen pens, stored nib up.  Left to right: Tatuaje Black Lance (9 pens), Tatuaje (6 pens), Tatuaje round box (11 pens), and El Producto “Queens” vintage box (16 pens).

The next group of boxes have pen capacity of around 8 to 11 pens.  The Room 101 “Daruma” has a lift-off lid.  The Oliva, 3 Reyas, and Eiroa boxes hold about five pens.

Next are some Acid Cigars “Kuba Deluxe” boxes.  The one in front in the picture is exactly as I get them, while the black one has been painted.  I can paint these most any color.  They hold ten pens and have a view window in the lid.  The other pictures show a previously sold box that was painted burgundy.

Six Pen Leather-Look Box

Leather-Look Box

This interesting box began as an experiment.  I used some patterned microsuede cloth that resembles leather to completely cover the exterior of the box, even the bottom.  When I found that my technique for attaching the leather-look material to the box worked well, I completed the interior to produce the box offered here.

This small box measures just 6 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches and its six burgundy microsuede lined pen slots hold pens up to 6 1/8 inches long.  I added some vintage advertising artwork to line the lid and complete the look.

The Six Pen Leather-Look Box is priced at $35 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code for a shipping cost quote.

12 Pen Box: EP Carrillo “La Historia” Dona Elena

Dona Elena

Dona Elena

The EP Carrillo “La Historia” series of boxes are beautifully made with a glossy red to burgundy sort of exterior finish.  I have added twelve individual velvety flocked full length pen slots to convert these boxes into beautiful storage and display for your pens.

The “La Historia” Dona Elena box measures 12 3/4 inches by 9 inches by 2 inches and the 12 pen slots each accommodate pens up to 7 3/4 inches long.

The box pictured in this post is one previously sold, but identical to the four I have available.  I used black pen slots to match the black velvet that lines the lid of the box, but either red or burgundy would be a nice alternative.

I am currently taking orders for delivery in August.

The EP Carrillo “La Historia” Dona Elena 12 Pen Box is priced at $65 plus shipping. Four available.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code for a shipping cost quote.

21 Pen Box: Montecristo “Le Cigar des Arts Royale” with Michael Delacroix Artwork

Michael Delacroix art

For the Millenium, Montecristo commissioned artist Michael Delacroix to create a series of scenes of Havana and Paris.  These drawings appeared on specially-made cigar boxes of dramatic proportions for a limited time.  In the past few years, I have gathered four of the boxes, but because of their unusual size, I was puzzled as to the best way to fit them to hold fountain pens.

Recently, I accepted an order for one of the boxes and that forced me to figure out a good inside configuration.  The result is pictured below, with a total capacity of 21 pens, 13 sitting vertically across the front and 8 horizontally in the back of the box.

The 13 front slots accommodate pens of up to 5 1/2 inches in length and the 8 back slots hold pens of up to 6 inches. And, if you require longer pen slots, I can arrange the front 13 to be about 6 1/2 inches and reduce the back slots from 8 to 6 for a total of 19 pens.

The Montecristo box measures 13 1/2 inches by 11 1/2 inches by 2 1/4 inches.  These boxes are currently selling on ebay for $20 to $40 empty.

I have three more of these boxes and can finish the insides of them in black, burgundy, or red as you choose.  At the moment I am taking orders for delivery in August.

The Montecristo “Le Cigar des Arts Royale” 21 Pen Box is priced at $95 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code for a shipping cost quote.

A Pair of Nine Pen Boxes

Closed

Here are two nearly identical boxes by LFD, the same in every respect except for exterior color and a bit of logo difference.

The pictures tell the story best, but one box is black and the other, dark brown.  They are the same size, measuring 6 3/4 inches by 8 1/4 inches by 1 1/2 inches, and have the same pen capacity, nine pens each up to 6 inches long.

The boxes have a gold logo and writing on the lids, and the same logo appears on the black velvety lining of the lid.  I have added a 2mm foam pad on the bottom of the boxes to protect surfaces and prevent sliding.

Inside, I have carried the black velvety theme on into the pen compartment, where I have lined the box with black felt, then fitted nine individual pen cradles, each lined with very soft black microsuede, so your pens never touch anything but the suede cloth.

The Nine Pen Boxes are priced at $35 plus shipping each. Brown box is SOLD If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com for a shipping cost quote.  Be sure to include your location or ZIP code.  Obviously I will combine shipping cost if you purchase both boxes.

I ship via USPS Priority Mail in the USA and via USPS International First Class Package outside the USA.

Seven Pen Blue and White Box

Closed, showing lid design

Closed, showing lid design

I came across this attractive blue and white box – NOT a cigar box – recently and immediately thought it would make a very nice desktop pen box.

I’ve lined the box entirely with black material and fitted it with seven individual pen compartments, each lined with black microsuede.

The box will now hold seven pens, each up to 6 1/8 inches long, each in its individual compartment, touching nothing but the microsuede compartment lining.

The lid is fitted with a black support cord and the bottom of the box has four “feet” to protect your desk or table surface and also to prevent sliding.  The box is quite heavy and has a substantial feel.

The Blue & White Seven Pen Box is priced at $40 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please click here to email me and be sure to include your location or ZIP code for a shipping cost quote.

I ship via USPS Priority Mail in the USA and via USPS International First Class Package internationally.

Here’s Something Different – NOT a Pen Box…a Cigar Box Lamp

Lamp Edit

Click on this image to enlarge

This is just the thing for your man cave or billiard room, a lamp made from repurposed cigar boxes.  In this case, two Oliva boxes and a Java Maduro form the base and it is topped with a drum style black shade.

The base of the lamp is 7″ by 10″ and it stands 23″ tall to the top of the shade.

The socket is a 3-way, so you can choose to use a 3-way bulb or a standard bulb, whatever you prefer.  The cord is six feet long, ending in a standard polarized plug.

I can ship this lamp within the USA only.  It is bulky, but not very heavy, so shipping cost within the USA should not be too high.

An option for the buyer:  Since the lampshade is both bulky and fragile, I am quite willing to sell the lamp without a shade and let you provide your own shade.  I will reduce the price by $15 if you choose this option.

The Oliva/Java Cigar Box Lamp is priced at $75 plus shipping ($60 plus shipping without the shade).  If you are interested, please click here to email me for a shipping cost quote.  Be sure to include your location or ZIP code.
