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.

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.
