(this page updated 13th November, 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.

RBU 89

 

 

Stunning, and one of the bigger, rarer, and most desirable sets from Burnham.

The button-filling pen might even have been by Parker, but it's engraved The Burnham Pen - British made, and both it and the pencil are contained in this handsome and sturdy early Burnham box.

The pencil is BIG, chunky and the only Burnham pencil we've ever seen in this design

Red Ripple throughout, even down to the feed
