Since time immemorial, various writing instruments have been used to record important information. In ancient Egypt, reeds were used, and later the quill was adopted as the preferred instrument. It's said that the first fountain pen was invented by a student in Paris in the 1820s. But for many, a pen isn’t just a utilitarian writing instrument. It is a work of art, a statement piece that expresses the owner’s individuality and style. Companies like Montblanc, Visconti, Bexley and Caran De’Ache make some of the world’s finest pens. The collection at Sotheby’s Home has luxury writing instruments for every taste and occasion.
