We always have one of the largest collection of Vintage Mabie todd fountain pens  available on the net

One of the longest-lived makers of writing equipment, Mabie Todd & Co. began producing dip pens and mechanical pencils in New York City in the 1840s. Gold nibs were added to the line through an association with Bard Brothers. Mabie Todd & Bard (as the firm was then known) took out its first fountain pen patent in 1878, and over the next decades its constant innovation put it at the forefront of quality fountain pen manufacture.

Export to the UK began early, and a London office was opened in 1884. Manufacture of pens in the UK began around 1909, and by 1915 the UK side of the business had become so dominant that it bought out the original New York firm. Manufacture continued in the USA on a steadily diminishing scale throughout the interwar years.

By 1927 the Company were producing beautiful Early Plastic Pens and this trend continued through the 30’s. Some of the most beautiful and highly collectable examples were made during this period.  A Limited Post war product range appeared Post war with the company producing less elaborate plain colour pens in the very stylish torpedo shape.

By the 50’s, this once prolific producer of fine quality writing Instruments, went the same way as all the rest falling victim to the ballpoint pen.
