When I started collecting pens, I did not spend a lot of attention to boxes, adverts and other ephemera. But during the time, I had to learn that these things are quite interesting. Also it's important to understand how things were presented and marketed in the past. It’s a great thing, being able to present a pen in the original case. I think this is much more attractive than showing only single pens. That’s why I tried to add pens with boxes to my collection when ever I was able to. Here some pictures:

Parker VIP and Minim in interesting boxes.  The VIP was a short-lived model that was basically a 51 with 61 clips.

Pens in their original boxes can be very interesting. Sometimes they reveal something about the history of the pen. Sorry, I loaded up on the photos.

This has become a nice thread. Thanks to you.

I was told this was a quite rare pen. Lamy 99 demonstrator from 1950 with original box:

Very nice, but I almost like the box more than the pen, haha!

There has been a pocket case also:
