Fine Desk Accessories: Pens and Paperweights


Cowan?s is proud to offer the Fountain Pen Collection of Dr. David M. Nash III MD (1951-2012). The diversity of this collection exposes an availability of pens seldom offered and a multitude of highly collectible pens with something to satisfy any facet of fountain pen collecting. A number of these pens are now out of production and quite a few advanced collector pieces are VERY limited in production, are prototypes or unique.


Included in Nash?s collection are a small group of the highest quality, custom crafted fountain pens by Paul Rossi. These pens represent unique design and perfection not found in most of the current examples of pens with semi-precious and precious metal overlay and inlay ornamentation. Wm. Weakley of Power Pens was quick to recognize the exceptional Rossi talent. His appreciation of this talent led him to acquire several unique, artist proof and #1 pens during the budding 1990s years of Rossi?s creativity. The bulk of these pens found their way into Dr. Nash?s collection. An early tribute to Rossi?s work was an article in Pen World, by Kathleen Kelly titled ?Artistry? and pictured several of the pens offered. A copy of this enlightening article will accompany each pen.
