This is a useful resource, but it might be worth laying down some criteria as to what qualifies.
some immediate thoughts:
Conway Stewart manufactured Pixie, Universal & International model pens- why are they listed separately? But Dinkie & Dandy are omitted.
Boots (a shop) have their Chatsworth brand listed but not their Rufford brand.
Woolworths (a shop) do not have their New Bond Easi Flow listed
WH Smith do not have their brand The Seal listed
Harrods likewise do not have the Grenville listed
BCP have their brand National Security listed, but not Rosemary.
Lang & BCM / HH7 would have a claim to be a manufacturer but get no mention, Waterman do.
Pitman / Pitman College were a distinct brand (? made by Waterman)
Felix MacCauley is absent, Valentine is not
As to what qualifies: brands only, whether they are main brands or subbrands.
Ideally I would like to know the main brand in case of subbrands, and also the manufacturing company and any other useful information if possible.
This list was created while moving topics to the new forums here at FPN, and it is far from complete. A list for all countries is posted in the Pen History forum, which ideally should include all brands and manufacturers, and here only those brands are listed which are to be discussed here which are all British and Irish brands with the exception of the (main) brands that have their own forum (Cross, Esterbrook, Parker, Shaeffer, Waterman, etc., varying by forum of course).
Waterman was mentioned by accident .
Other than that, I only realized I should have added main brands and/or manufacturers when I was quite far in the process, so quite often they are still missing. It was too much work to go back and revisit all the resources I have used to find the brands listed. I do hope to receive input from the experts here on FPN, like yourself, to create a more or less complete list, with all the important parameters, and hopefully even a few paragraphs on each brand and/or manufacturer eventually. That is a job with a very long term view, however, I am afraid, unless lots of people jump in and help out. Even then it will be quite a daunting prospect.
Anyway, this explains this list, why it isn't complete, and why there are likely errors in this list - I am far from an expert on the subject, I have a few books, an internet connection and Google, and that is how this initial list was created .
Please keep on providing information like you did already, and together we, all of us on FPN, will be able to create quite a unique and very useful library of brands, I am sure. Nothing else like this exists anywhere on the 'net.
BTW, the brands you provided have been added already, and corrections have been made . Oh, except Lang & BCM / HH7, I don't know exactly what you mean by those. Are those brands, or manufacturers, or both?
Thanks in advance!
Warm regards, Wim
