(this page updated 4th August, 2017)

Burnham pens were manufactured in England between the mid-1920's and the mid-1960's
and are now becoming very collectible.
Early Burnhams are quite rare, whilst the 1940's/1950's models come in a
stunning array of different coloured marbles and several different sizes.
By any standards these are worthy pens, and they make very decorative
and useful additions to any collection.
