Auction of the Chris Chalmers Pen Collection

THE CHRIS CHALMERS COLLECTION OF FOUNTAIN PENS. Chris Chalmers built-up her collection of fountain pens over a 38-year period starting in 1980. After moving to Australia in 2001, her collecting of & trading in unique, vintage & limited edition pens expanded. She also became fascinated with Japanese & handcrafted pens & developed close friendships with several pen artisans & master craftsmen including Henry Simpole and Nakata-san. Several pens were created specifically for her, some of which can be found in this auction. She was a very active & well known member of the fountain pen collecting community & continued buying and trading pens until 2012. Ill-health saw her withdraw from collecting around 2012 and she returned to the UK in 2013 to live in Cornwall. Chris sadly passed away in 2018.
