We run dedicated auctions of modern and vintage writing instruments. Our specialist knowledge comes from over two decades of experience with pens and a lifetime of relationships with fountain pen collectors and dealers.

In addition to our dedicated auctions, North American Pen Auctions Ltd. also offers appraisal services for estates and collectors, and guidance on collection dispersal.

Our passion for writing instruments started early. My father had an interest in fountain pens and he often wrote with one at his desk. When he learned about the Toronto Pen Show in the mid-1990s, I went with him, and proudly purchased my first vintage fountain pen for far more money than my mom could ever imagine. I have been actively involved in this field ever since.

When I started collecting, reference books and word of mouth were the only ways that you could build a collection and knowledge of the subject. The internet and the emergence of online auctions and collecting communities changed everything. Collecting became international. Being part of the international community of pen collectors has introduced me to people and places across the United States and around the world.

The fountain pen community is one like no other and I look forward to continuing to be a part of it.
Whether you have a single fountain pen or an entire collection, we can advise on value and assist you with finding the best market. Please contact us.
