SOLD: Vintage Advertising Theme – 9 Pen Box

vintage-advertising-box-closedUsing vintage advertising of a European pen store plus a collage of other vintage ads, this box has been transformed into a wonderful home for your pens, with no hint of its origin as a cigar box.

On the lid, there is a vintage ad for La Maison du Porte-Plume in Brussels, and inside the lid I’ve created a collage of other vintage ads and floated a fountain pen in above the ads, ready to write.

The pen tray holds nine pens, each up to six inches long, in individual velvety flocked pen compartments.  Your pens will touch only this soft surface.

The box measures 9 1/2 inches by 7 1/4 inches by 2 1/2 inches.

The Nine Pen Box with Vintage Advertising Theme is priced at $35 plus shipping. SOLD If you are interested, please email me at and include your ZIP Code or location for a 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.
