Guess the pen of this ad. It would be more fun if you provide some (semirational:)) justification for your guess.

Bobr - early version of the macarena?

Kissing - No, sorry - it is about 30 years earlier

conklin?-i think you can read it on one of the barrels, unless my eyes deceive me; the script is right, but they sure don't look like any conklin i know or have wink.gif

I also think I can read the barrel and I think it says Chilton Pen and if it does I think it is an ad for the Chilton Boston. The dance might be the Bristol Stomp...but I'm not sure biggrin.gif

Ummmm, just a wild guess...Charleston Pens, and the people are dancing charleston? The women's dresses look kind of rolling 20s biggrin.gif

But the blurred pen name looks much longer...

Looks like a Chilton to me as well.

The high barrel threads, indicative of a Boston Chilton are a give-away, as can be faintly made out, the Chilton imprint on the pen barrels. Clip styles are Boston Chilton looking. I would guess the ad is from 1926-1927 perhaps? I have never seen it in my collecting of such stuff.

Nice find.

I go some wild wingflow ads to share, if anyone wants to see them.

Antonios, can you send me a copy of the ad, via e-mail?
