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.

The CROXLEY pen took its name from the Hertfordshire village

not far away, in Apsley, Hemel Hempstead.

Nor often found with their original box, these pens were
manufactured in Kirkby, Liverpool (formerly Lang's).

By any standards, this is among the best of vintage
pen manufacture, and the box is clearly marked
BRITISH MADE.

The button-filling pen is quite slim, but long - longer than a
Parker Streamline Senior Duofold - and the whole set is
in virtually MINT condition.

There is no clue to the manufacturer, though we are reasonably
certain that it was manufactured in Liverpool by the Lang
Pen Company.

NATIONAL SECURITY
(Updated 1st May, 2021)

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, as well as some other London pen companies.


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 early1930'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.
