Dunhill Seven Pen Box

dunhill-seven-pen-box-closedI rarely get Dunhill boxes, but when I do they are invariably nicely made clean designs.  This one is no exeption, a Signed Range box that I have adapted to hold seven pens.

The Signed Range box is finished in dark brown and features three medals that the Dunhill cigars it once held have won.  Its lid is held tightly closed by two inset magnetic catches.

The beige seven pen tray was selected to compliment the brown finish and gold medals.  Each pen, up to 5 3/8 inches long, is held safely in its individual compartment and each compartment is finished with a velvety flocked material to protect the finish of your pens.

A 2mm thick foam pad has been added to the bottom of the box for safety and a non-marring finish.

The Dunhill Signed Range Seven 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 ZIP Code or location for an accurate mailing cost quote.

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

Avo Uvezian “Synchro” Nine Pen Box

avo-uvezian-synchro-closedAvo Uvezian always manages to somehow represent his musical background in the style of his cigar boxes.  The Synchro is no exception, with multicolored bands both on and inside the lid.  When I see this I can just hear Avo’s jazz piano!

The Synchro is a nicely made box, measuring 9 1/2 inches by 7 inches by 1 3/4 inches and holding nine pens up to 6 inches long.

A red pen tray picks up the red from the musical pattern.  The tray is flocked with a velvety red finish, with each pen compartment being both deep and wide, offering your pens a very safe home.

The Avo Uvezian Synchro nine pen box is priced at $40 (plus actual mailing cost).  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your ZIP Code or location for an accurate mail cost quote.

One of a Kind – Davidoff Year of the Horse 8 Pen Box

davidoff-year-of-the-horse-closedEvery year, Davidoff issues a limited edition of cigars in a specially-designed box, dedicated to the current year of the twelve-year Chinese zodiac.  2014 was the Year of the Horse, and the original purchasers of these boxes of cigars have kept a close hold on the empty boxes.  Recently, I managed to purchase one in almost-new condition, and I have now converted it for use as a pen box.

The Year of the Horse box is finished in glossy red and black velvety cloth, embellished with a rather tasteful logo.  The red, black, and gold theme is carried inside as well.  I have tried to maintain that style as closely as possible while finishing the former cigar compartment to hold eight pens appropriately.

The cigar compartment itself was unfinished wood – common in cigar boxes to help maintain proper humidity – so I stained it jet black to complement the black cloth, then added a red pen tray surrounded by red felt in the compartment.  You will surely agree that it will show off your pens in elegant style – and nobody else will have one just like this!

The pen tray is flocked with a velvety red material and contains each pen completely within its individual compartment.  The maximum pen length is 6 inches, and as you will see in the pictures, it can hold some really large pens, such as the Montblanc 149, Laban Mento, and Sheaffer Oversize Balance and PFM.

The box lid is secured with a magnetic catch and I have added a 2mm thick foam pad on the bottom to prevent sliding or scuffing.  The box measures 10 1/4 inches by 8 inches by 1 1/2 inches.

The Davidoff Year of the Horse 8 Pen Box is priced at $55 plus mailing cost.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and be sure to include your ZIP Code or location for an accurate mailing cost quote.

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

Romeo y Julieta “Star Crossed” 9 Pen Box

romeo-y-julieta-star-crossed-closedHere’s a tribute to the Bard himself: Romeo y Julieta’s “Star Crossed” box.  This is the only one of its type that I’ve seen, and I was really charmed by the artwork and the elegant gold and white color scheme – with just a touch of red.

I wanted to continue the theme that had started so well, so I painted some bare internal components gold and fitted a velvety nine pen tray that, well, it’s almost gold.  Close enough, I think.  White ribbons stop the lid from opening too far.

The box is compact, measuring 9 1/2 inches by 7 1/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches, yet it holds up to nine pens, each up to 5 7/8 inches long.

Someone is going to really enjoy this box.  I would keep it myself, but I have too many already!

The “Star Crossed” Nine Pen Box is priced at $40 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and be sure to include your ZIP Code or location so that I can provide an accurate mailing cost.

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

Looks Like a Book – Six Pen Box

Here’s a LFD Chapter I box converted to hold six pens in individual velvety flocked full length compartments. And I am offering it at a bargain price!

I’ve offered the Chapter I box before, but always in a five pen setup.  This one holds six pens, each up to 6 3/4″ long, in 7/8″ wide individual compartments.  Since the box is black with gold trim, I’ve continued that theme with a black pen tray inside.

The box measures just 8 inches by 6 1/4 inches by 1 3/4 inches.  I’ve added four foam “feet” on the bottom.

The LFD Chapter I book box for Six Pens is priced at a bargain…just $25 plus shipping.  If you are interested, just email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and be sure to include your ZIP Code or location for a mailing cost quote.

I take payment by PayPal or if you prefer I can email an invoice which you can pay with a credit card.

Space Box for Five Pens

space-box-closedI covered this box with some black/silver/gold paper in a swirling pattern. Looking at the finished exterior I was reminded of pictures of far-off galaxies taken with the Hubble Space Telescope, so I decided to continue the “space” theme inside.

I found a Hubble picture of a spiral galaxy, much like our own Milky Way might look from far away, and sized it to fit inside the lid.  Then, since much of space seems to be quite dark, I fitted a black pen tray and lined the box with black felt to represent the blackness of space.

Now if only I could find a music box mechanism to play the theme from 2001, a Space Odyssey it would be just perfect.

The box is long enough that in addition to holding five pens in individual flocked velvety slots – each up to 7 1/2 inches long – I was able to fit a small compartment at the right end to hold ink cartridges, paper clips, or whatever…

The bottom of the box is covered with black felt as well.

The box measures 10 inches by 5 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches.

The Space Box for Five Pens is priced at $40 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please email me at BamaPen@jehubbard.com and include your ZIP Code or location for a mailing cost quote.

I mail by USPS Priority Mail in the US and by USPS International First Class Package outside the US.  I take payment by PayPal or I can email an invoice to be paid by credit or debit card.
