Place to sell luxury fountain pen ?
 
Hello

I'm looking for a place to sell some rare* fountain pens from my collection, can someone recommend me a good auction house or maybe some private club here in Switzerland ?


Thanks !


*very limited editions of Cartier.

Thanks for the reply, I'm just not sure if this the proper place to advertise.
The price for some is more than 100k USD. I have not seen such expansive items for sale here.

Well, you can always give it a try.


And are your here to brag? Try Sotheby´s or Christie´s if it really is a valuable one.

You made us curious now!

I find it slightly odd that someone who bought pens worth this kind of money has no idea where to sell them????

buying a pen for 100k is easy. selling it for a 100k is a different story.

I might be interested, I lost my last limited edition cartier down the back of the sofa, along with the keys to my Ferrari.

Serves you right. You should have bought the Ron Arad Stainless sofa. No thing swallowing upholstery.

The butler is cleaning the pool, the sun is out so I might have a quick dip before afternoon tea.

I guess the more they expand the higher the worth ... so we buy it and let it grow for a while.

You have a pool guy? Seriously, are times that tough for you?

Why would you get more money in Switzerland for a worldwide sought after item?
Just 5 minutes of google gave me 10 starting points to get quotes.
Any auction nowadays is internet inclusive.
Just a commission and tax issue.
Ok - the pen must be authentic and have any historical attributes verified - I am sure that if I had something of this worth, I would have been well down this path by now.

Maybe you are just trying to attract a bird with your collection of pens
