This Ashton Corona box is well-made and has an attractive exterior. I have fitted out the inside to make it an appealing place for six of your pens.
I started by sanding and varnishing the interior bare wood surfaces, then lined the box with royal blue felt and fitted a matching flocked velour pen tray. I added some artwork that features vintage postcards and a fountain pen.
The box will hold six pens, each up to 5 3/4 inches long.
The box measures 6 3/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches by 2 1/4 inches and I have fitted a 2mm thick foam pad to the bottom of the box to minimize sliding and to avoid scratching your desk or table top.
The Ashton Six Pen Box is priced at just
$25 plus actual mailing cost. SOLD 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 a firm mailing cost quote.
I take payment by PayPal or if you prefer to use a card, I can email an invoice.

The box will hold seven pens and the “leather” is actually patterned suede cloth, so the individual pen compartments are quite soft and will protect your pens from damage.
The Steampunk box is priced at
$25 plus shipping. SOLD If you are interested in this box, please email me with your location for a shipping price quote.
The Ashton VSG Wizard is one of the few boxes deep enough for those tall Noodler’s ink bottles. It is relatively rare; this is only the second one I’ve found in nearly two years. It measures 8″ by 7″ by 4 1/2″ deep and I can fit it for ink only or for a combination of pens and ink. A combination box is especially handy on or near your desk, as it can keep your current rotation of pens plus your favorite inks ready for use, yet nicely stored. Continue reading
