(this page updated 22nd August, 2016)

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.


All are in working order - unless noted
