About our company

Who we are and What we do  

The Battersea Pen Home is run by Simon Gray and Sean Lovell - its two founding partners.  We
 specialize in selling and repairing pens and pencils, both modern and vintage

After being based in Battersea for ten years, we moved to Epping in 2000

We repair most makes of fountain pen for customers and are recommended by Sheaffer UK. We were trained and certified by Parker and Waterman in 2002 as service technicians for their writing instruments.

From 1995 to 2005 we organised the London Pen Show.  Since 2007 the show has been organised by the Writing Equipment Society. In August 2000, Simon Gray was elected to the Board of Directors of the Pen Collectors of America for a two year term

Simon is also a consultant for Miller's Collectables Handbook 2012-13 on pens and writing equipment

A Pen Home catalogue       

Some of our catalogues from the mid 1990s - the good old pre-internet days!  These were posted out to subscribers around the world and featured many pens which rarely surface today
