About This Model
Moore was one of the early fountain pen manufacturers, a major player in the early years, then less so as the “Big 4” dominated after the late 1920s. Even as a progressively lesser brand, Moore pens were successful from the early 1900s until the 1940s. They pioneered some designs in safety pens, and their hard rubber pens were very nice. The later Tuscan, 94, and 96 celluloid models were very nice, but too much of Moore’s output was pedestrian. It is probably true that poor marketing and stiff competition blocked them from success. Unable to do more than follow industry trends and keep up with the leaders, Moore faded as a brand. Moore's post-WWII Fingertip model was a new use of a hooded nib, but too late. Moore survived until the late 1950s.
