Hi, am a new collector. I purchased a couple pens from Amazon and that got me started. I have about a dozen pens but only a couple of vintage. I used a fountain pen in high school. I am trying to learn all I can.

The pen in the pic is a Stratford I got yesterday. Thanks for all the info on this company.

Welcome !  

 

I have a large SALZ Brothers fountain pen.  It is sturdy and excellent quality.  I think SALZ and Stratford were connected.

From what I have read, and that is not much, they started making the Stratford and later changed their name to Stratford.
