A Pretty Eleven Pen Box

Upmann closedThis box by H. Upmann features a glossy dark brown exterior finish with an attractive logo on the lid.

Inside, I’ve added some custom artwork in the lid and a flocked velour pen tray – tan to highlight the pens and to carry through the earth-tone theme.

The pen tray features full length pen slots to hold your pens in individual comfort, not touching anything else.  Each of the eleven slots will hold a pen up to 6 3/4 inches long.

The box measures 11 3/4 inches by 7 3/4 inches by 1 1/2 inches and the bottom is covered by a felt pad.

The H. Upmann Eleven Pen Box  is priced at $45 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code so that I can provide an accurate mailing cost quote.

I accept payment via PayPal or if you prefer, I can email an invoice which you can pay securely with a credit or debit card.

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

ON HOLD: Six Pen Velour-Lined Desktop Box

 

VF Teal closedThis six pen box is unusual in several respects: First, it has a markedly horizontal feel because it is considerably wider than it is deep. Second, the lid splits in the center, opening toward the sides.  Third, the finish is composed of a deep blue background with gold, teal, brown, and copper marbling overlaid on it for a distinctly three-dimensional depth.  Each new lighting angle reveals a slightly different appearance.

Inside, the soft velour lining repeats the teal in the exterior marbling.  The insides of the lids and the surrounding edge of the box are stained red/brown, and the entire pen compartment is lined with soft teal velour.

The box measures 9 inches wide by 6 inches front to back and 1 1/2 inches deep.  HIdden embedded magnets secure the dual lids closed.

The Six Pen Velour-Lined Box is priced at $40 plus actual mailing cost. ON HOLD If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code so that I can provide a mailing cost quote.

I mail by USPS Priority Mail in the US and by USPS International First Class Package internationallly.  I accept payment by PayPal or if you prefer I can email an invoice which you can pay securely with a credit or debit card.

Two Single Pen Boxes

Liberty Singles closedThese Liberty Singles are nearly identical, with the only difference being the color of the lining.  Originally designed to hold one high-end cigar, I have repurposed them to hold one very nice fountain pen in secure comfort.

The painted top surface is original, but I have sanded, stained, and varnished the sides, ends, and bottom of the boxes, plus visible inside surfaces, all of which were originally bare wood.  Then I added felt linings, black in one and deep burgundy in the other.

These single pen boxes measure 7 inches long and 1 3/8 inches wide and tall.  The interior allows for a pen up to 6 1/2 inches long and 7/8 inch in diameter.  In the pictures you will see that my Montblanc 149 fits comfortably into the box with room to spare.

The Liberty Singles are priced at $20 each, plus shipping, or $18 each plus shipping for two.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your location or ZIP Code for a mailing cost quote.

I accept payment via PayPal.  I mail in the US by USPS Priority Mail and internationally by USPS International First Class Package.

Three Boxes for Smaller Pens

In previous posts here I have shown three different boxes suitable for Esterbrook and other smaller pens up to 5 1/8″ long.  You can see details by following these links:

Eiroa Four Pen Box

Davidoff Five Pen Box

Foundry Twelve Pen Box – this one is a double decker, so you’ll only see the top deck in the picture below.

Here’s a picture of the three together:

Three boxes for smaller pens

A Four Pen Box for Esterbrooks and Other Smaller Pens

Open with lid aside

Eiroa makes really nice boxes in a variety of sizes.  This one is about their smallest, measuring just 6″ by 4 3/4″ by 2 1/2″ deep on the outside.  It has an unusual lift-off lid.

Inside, it is just large enough for four pens measuring up to 5 1/8″ long – think Esterbrooks for sure, and a number of other pens that you may not have thought of as “small.”  See the picture below with pens in the box – one of them is a Sheaffer Triumph Sentinel, and it fits in nicely.

I have stained the inside of the box with a dark walnut stain to make it compatible with the dark colored exterior.  The inside of the lid, the bottom of the interior, and the four pen slots are all lined with burgundy microsuede cloth to cradle your pens.

The Eiroa Four Pen Box is priced at just $30 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and be sure to include your location or ZIP Code for a mailing cost quote.

Desktop Box for Five Esterbrook or Other Smaller Pens

25th Anniversary closed

This is a 25th Anniversary Robusto Gordo box from Davidoff of Geneva, repurposed into a beautiful jewel box for five smaller pens.  It would look great sitting on a desk, holding pens at the ready.

The box is white with a gold lid and gold logos.  I have added a tasteful gold trim on the inside edges and fitted the box with a black microsuede lining to match the velvety black lining of the lid.

Each of the five individual pen slots is lined with the same soft black microsuede to protect and separate your pens.  The pens can be up to 5 1/8″ long, which will include all Esterbrooks plus many other pens.

The box measures just 5 5/8″ by 5″ by 2 1/4″ deep.  The lid has a magnetic closure.

The Davidoff of Geneva 25th Anniversary Five Pen Box is priced at just $35 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and be sure to include your location or ZIP code for a mailing cost quote.

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 one of the Chapter I boxes and one none 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 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.
