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.

Eight Pen Box – Casa Magna Optimus

Closed

This is a nicely finished box for eight pens.  Each pen is cradled in its individual flocked “velvety” full-length compartment.

The exterior is finished in a deep red brown with gold Casa Magna logo.  The interior has the same color on the wood surfaces, and I have added a flocked black pen tray to hold eight pens.

Each pen can be up to 5 5/8 inches long.  I must point out, however, that this is a shallow box and the clip on larger diameter pens may need to be rotated to the side to allow the lid to close properly.  The two pens pictured are a Waterman Phileas and a Parker 51.  The lid closes easily with these pens and others of similar size in the tray.

I would normally price this box at $35 plus shipping, but due to the diameter limitation, I have decided to offer it for $25 plus shipping.

Price Reduced: 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 $45 $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.

 

Really Different…a Round Twelve Pen Box

Here’s a box I’ve not seen before, and not too likely to see again.  It’s a round double decker box from Foundry Cigars.  The three parts of the box nest together with the outside wood strips matching from bottom to top.  The lid features a “steampunk” style image.

PLEASE NOTE: This box can only hold pens up to 5 3/16 inches long.  Please measure the pens that you would consider placing in this box to be certain that they will fit.

I’ve repurposed it to hold twelve pens, six in each of its two levels, each pen up to 5 3/16 inches long.  That is not long enough for longer pens, but it will handle many other pens.  For example, in the pictures are a variety of Esterbrook J, SJ, and LJ pens and several different models of Sheaffer Balance, Military Balance, and Triumph Sentinel pens.

I have lined the former cigar compartments with red felt and fitted red velvety flocked pen trays to keep each pen securely in its place.  I’ve even lined the inside of the lid with matching red felt so that a pen can’t touch wood in any direction.

The box measures 7 3/4 inches in diameter and 2 3/4 inches tall.

If you have the right pens, then this will make a very interesting desktop pen box for you.

The Round Twelve Pen Box is priced at $50 plus shipping.  If you are interested, please click here to email me for a shipping cost quote.

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.
