Dickinson Croxley

1930's

About This Model

English fountain pen manufacturers, covered the range from excellent and exclusive to budget/low quality, just as those seen from other countries. The best-known English budget brands included names like Croxley, Dickinson, Mentmore, Burnham, Valentine. They were almost all button-filled, made of celluloid (although some, like Conway Stewart, used casein in the lean pre-WWII years.

About This Pen

This Croxley is deep red celluloid with pink marbling and 14k gold trim. Although a lever-filler, it resembled a 1930’s Parker Duofold, with its black derby crown and arrow clip. It is full-sized, at 12.7cm long capped and 1.1cm across just south of the cap edge. The pne is in very nice condition, but shows some evidence of age and wear. The gold trim is missing plate along the high points on the clip and the cap ring. The imprint is complete, with “The Croxley Pen, a Dickinson Product, Great Britain.” The nib is imprinted with “A Dickinson Product” and is gold. If its looks weren’t enough, the wonder of this pen is its nib, which is a mild stub and (even for me) writes a beautiful, wet very broad line. Be sure to use this pen near your ink bottle, you’ll need it.
