I might have missed this somewhere above, but if we're not including 'Duofold' (and I think that it's right we shouldn't) because it's a model, not a brand, then we shouldn't include (Conway Stewart's) Dinkie.

 

Wee point also about Kenrick and Jefferson: it's not KenDrick.

Tesco now have their own brand of pen - no clue who makes it for them.

 

On the Croxley v Dickenson argument, I'm with PeterG on this one as I believe the brand only existed for 3 or 4 years and was made in the Dickenson's pen factory in Liverpool.  Will argue it out with Cobb and PeterG at the London Pen Club(1) this coming Saturday (unless I get distracted by shinys).

 

1) 1st Saturday every month - Bierschenke near Liverpool St Station 12:00-14:00 except on the weekend of the London Writing Equipment Show.

Couple more things.

MacNiven was never a brand nor a model AFAIK. Cameron was a series of models in the loosest sense of the word series: the models had numbers on but its not clear if they meant anything. I suppose it could be considered similar to Swan in that way. But in that case, Waverley should also be an entry on its own, rather than just Waverley Cameron.

And did Kenrick and Jefferson ever make a pen that wasnt labelled Superpen? I know there are a few different varieties of Superpens but I dont know if K&J Superpen should be separate, or if just Kenrick and Jefferson should!

Perhaps this list needs dividing under three headings:

 

              Brand                               Model                          Manufacturer

 

Kenrick & Jefferson                     Superpen                       Mabie Todd

 

Conway Stewart                         CS550   Dinkie              Conway Stewart

Conway Stewart                         CS240                                   Lang

 

Dickenson                                  Croxley                          Lang / Dickenson

 

Parker                                        Duofold                            Valentine

 

You get the intent..... it starts to clarify some of the type of issues Matt is raising.

 

Probably to big a task for one rainy afternoon ;-)

A new name to add!

Bury. Not sure if they were a manufacturer, but I have seen a pen recently and several steel nibs on other pens.

 

And a second, Turnpike which rose from the ashes of Maypen (but not for very long!) Maypen probably manufactured the Top lever pen for Langs (plus their own version).

 

I agree with northlodge's divisions although Valentine was a brand, manufacturer and subsequently a brand manufactured by Parker.
