Welcome to our newest web site, PaulWirt.com. Many of
you know that we have been collecting Wirt Fountain Pens for well over
10 years. With this site, we hope to generate new interest in Paul E.
Wirt pens, the man behind them
& the company that made them.
Because Wirt pens were manufactured very near our home, in
Bloomsburg, Pa., we have been lucky enough to acquire many unusual items
& much useful information. You may or may not know that a large
amount of Wirt memorabilia was uncovered several years ago by a
Bloomsburg antique dealer. Again, we were lucky enough to acquire many of these items. Unfortunately, many more of those items have been lost
or scattered. Because the dealer did not know the significance of what
he had, he sent much of it to
various local auctions to be purchased in "box lots" by others
who quite literally do not know the importance of these pieces.
Among the items I purchased were 3 original hand written ledgers
from the Paul Wirt Fountain Pen factory. These ledgers span many years
& contain a wealth of information that was previously unknown. This
information includes the names of companies that supplied parts to the
factory and the companies that Wirt manufactured pens for. From this
same "find", I was also able to purchase some unusual fountain
pens and parts.
What I hope to provide here is
information & photographs
regarding Paul Wirt & his pens along with pictures of some of the
more interesting items in my personal collection.
