Auction highlight

Two Tropen fountain pens used by Ronald Searle are in the eBay shop now!  Visit the Cartoon Museum SF store and hit view all items. You'll see them listed individually.  Searle posters to follow next week.


Ronald Searle collector & fountain pen enthusiast Uli Meyer is custodian of the pens in London.  He describes their condition: 
"The pen is five or six decades old but I presume that it is usable. I haven't tried them and I never would. Ronald labelled all his pens and nibs meticulously. I very much hope that the winner of the pen will not use it. This pen is special because it came out of Ronald's pen drawer with his note attached, last used by the man himself. I would hope that the pen would be kept as it is. "
