Mentmore Header image


MENTMORE pens were made in Hackney, East London, UK, between the 1920's and the mid 1950's.
They are attractive, exceptionally well-made, and were deservedly very popular,
especially between 1946 and the mid 1950's.
Mentmore also manufactured for several other distributors
and they, themselves, also used the brand name of Spot.

A small corner of fountain pen history !
This is the very last model of the
CROXLEY,
manufactured in Kirkby, Liverpool, just before
the company suddenly ceased production a
few months later, in mid 1949

(click on the images below for larger pictures)
Croxley set
Croxley pens were originally made at the John Dickinson
factory near Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
They took the name Croxley from the
nearby village of Croxley Green, and this was the
first and only streamline pen they manufactured,
known as
The TORPEDO.
Croxley set (i)
This set is MINT, RARE, and desirable,
not just because it is their last,
but also because it is in an un-damaged
iconic Art-Deco style plastic box complete
with the CROXLEY logo (click
here to see).
Croxley set (ii)
The pen has its original MEDIUM flexible nib
(click HERE and HERE for pictures)
and also included is a phial of spare leads
for the pencil.

NATIONAL SECURITY
(Updated 13th January, 2017)

National Security and Rosemary were the brand names of pens made for British Carbon
Papers of Farringdon, in the City of London.
During the 1920's/30's the manufacturers were Henry Stark, Son & Hamilton,
also registered at the same Farringdon address.


Rosemary ("That's for Remembrance") pens had been established in the early to mid 1920's,
and are now scarce and very desirable collector's items.

The National Security pens here date from the late 1930's to the mid 1940's
and are delightful examples of traditional pen-craftsmanship,
as well as being attractive items both to collect and use.
