Roy Conklin from Toledo, Ohio Formed the self filling fountain pen company in 1898 after inventing his unique Crescent filling System. By 1907 the Company had been transformed into the Conklin Pen Manufacturing Company.
By the 1920’s the company had grown to become one of the big four US Pen manufacturers still offering the extremely successful Crescent filling system
When sales began to decline the Company offered lever fill pens in addition to crescent fillers and by the Late 20’s many different models in beautiful colours were being produced.
The 30’s saw superb models including Nozacs in unique patterns and finishes much sought after by collectors
By the Later 30’s it was almost over for Conklin due to it’s economic problems. It was sold to a syndicate who produced uninteresting low cost models until the late 40’s
