Antiques at Scriptum - a sneak peek

If you've been keeping an eye on our website since we launched it in 2012 you'll have noticed that the selection of products is getting wider and wider. We can still only offer a fraction of what's available in the shop (and if you've visited us on Turl Street you'll understand why!) but have tried to cover as many different areas as possible.

One area that has been completely left out, though, are our antiques. Until now! Look out over the coming weeks as we begin to add an assortment of items taken from our eclectic antique collection. There will be inkwells and, of course, a good few Bavarian carved wood bears (these are now Scriptum mainstays!).

We only have one of each of these very special pieces, here's a sneak preview of some of them:

Ivory & silver page turner, 1909

Bavarian carved wood inkwell, c. 1900

Silver Mappin & Webb inkwell, 1899

Bavarian carved wood inkwell, c. 1890

Introducing... Bomo Art at Scriptum

 We’ve been selling their products in our shop on The Turl for a little while and now we’re very pleased to be introducing a wide selection of Bomo Art stationery to our website.

Bomo Art are based in Budapest, where they design and make all their beautiful items - from the conception of their unique printed papers, to the handbinding of their journals.


A couple of weeks ago, in the midst of a Hungarian heatwave, we were lucky enough to have lunch with the business's founder at a leafy Budapest cafe and discover for ourselves the passion and workmanship that goes into everything the company produces. Bomo Art say they aim to entice us to write… with stationery this wonderful, how could one resist?


There are cards, photograph albums, address books, boxfiles and a handful of different journals to choose from. To see everything click here.
