12 Days of Christmas Sale - Monday, Dec. 20

Today's "12 Days of Christmas" Sale item, "Mabie in America", should be on the shelf of every fan of vintage fountain pens. Author and fountain pen historian David Moak relates the fascinating story of the Mabie-related pen companies in astonishing detail, from John Mabie's first entry into the work force through the closing of the American company in 1941.

Containing nearly 250 pages and 750 illustrations, this volume represents the most complete history of a single pen company in print. This 3rd and final edition of this important work contains a considerable amount of new information and many new illustrations.

"Meticulously researched . . . lavishly illustrated." - Michael Fultz

"The well-written text is carefully annotated, and profusely illustrated with color pictures of pens and other products of the Mabie companies. While Mabie in America may appeal most of all to pen collectors, it is also an important contribution to New York business history and to the history of the Mabies and allied families." - The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record"

Every page surprises you with the scope of the research and the wealth of information. It makes you wish that every pen maker had a book like this." - Ron Dutcher

Normally $45.00. On sale at the Pear Tree Pen Company for only $26.99.

12 Days of Christmas Sale - Day 1

Well, apparently we can't count, because there are only 10 days until Christmas. (Holy cow - where does the time go?)

In any event, for those who can forgive us for this little imperfection, we've got something special in store for you. Every day from now until December 25, we will a spectacular item in our store slash its price. But you need to hurry, because supplies will be limited to in-stock inventory and the savings will only be good for 24 hours! Today's item is, we think, a wonderful way to start the savings: The Rohrer & Klingner Glass Dip Pen Gift Set. This beautiful handmade dip pen set is a perfect way to explore the 2 bottles of fantastic R & K inks that the set contains, but also make using the Pear Tree Pen Ink Sampler a breeze. And, of course, it's a great gift for any of the inkophiles on your list!
