I could not find a quality, attractive and functional pen chest at an affordable price so I make my own. Most of my cases are made from 30 to 100 -year-old vintage and antique silverware storage chests. I restore and re-furbish them into exquisite one-of-a-kind fountain pen storage/display chests of superior quality and sell them at an affordable price. Please compare the features and value of my cases with the others on the market.
To ensure the highest standard of quality, every process I use to re-furbish these elegant showpieces is completed entirely by hand. If you or somebody you know deserve the best.. I start with silverware storage cases. First, I take the case apart and remove all the interior materials.
Then I strip the exterior of any decades old varnish, paint or stain and sand it by hand down to new wood to prepare it for staining. The stains and methods I use enhance the grains and the exterior is protected with at least 15 coats of hand-applied polyurethane. The case is then re-assembled. Because chests come in many sizes the interior is completely custom built by hand.
The fabric is ultra-soft faux suede and the medallion is a semi-precious gemstone. I have many customers that own two, three or even four of my cases.
My fountain pen collection lives in 18 of my cases. Please let me know if you have specific needs in a storage / display case.
I will research, recommend, design and custom build a chest to your specs as long as it is within my areas of expertise. Below are just a few of the feedback I have received.
Many of the boxes I restore were originally made up to one hundred years ago. Most of the nicks, scratches and gouges (if there were any to begin with) have been completely repaired, but some will have small signs of wear and tear that was best not to attempt repair.
This just adds to the beauty and individuality of each piece. Please read the comments written by many of the folks who have bought and enjoy my Fountain Pen Storage Chests. I have a fairly large collection of fountain pens and needed a way to store, protect and display them.I looked at the products that were available and found that in most cases they were cheaply built and/or very expensive. Most of my pens are vintage or antique so I looked for a way to make a storage vessel that was in the age group of my collection. I found I could refurbish silverware storage chests and jewelry boxes that would fit more than 20, 30, 50 and sometimes over one hundred pens at a fraction of the cost of some of the nicer commercial products. Every case is refurbished by hand and incorporates a custom built storage system that I invented. Get Supersized Images & Free Image Hosting. Create your brand with Auctiva's.
