(Pen 1984, Drawer 105) Dean, what an amazing pen, thank you. I know it isn’t a genuine Eskesen, but the Wesco pens are the next best thing in my opinion, and this one is so beautifuly made. I can vouch that it goes really well with a glass of the black stuff.

Sailor Jerry Spiced

(Pen 2157, Drawer 46) When this retro lady drinks the spiced rum she puts on a black dress – or does she take it off?


(Pen 2178, Drawer 47) “Only Smarties have the answer” – Unless of course you are not from the UK, where Smarties have a completely different catchphrase or are a the name of a completely different candy (If you were from the UK, we would call them chocolates, not candy!)

Duvel Belgium Beer

(Pen 2195, Drawer 105) Another Wesco-style pen that we bought direct at the brewery in Bruges, Belgium. The tiny balls represent the froth on the beer, and the bubble is intentional in the design. There is a really nice company crest printed on the barrel
