Pen Brands Worldwide, By Country



Recommended Posts

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Fountain Pen Network,

 

As a side effect of the recent re-shuffle of forums (December 2014), which has more or less been concluded now, I was fortunate enough to search for all the pen brands I could find, with a view to moving them to the appropriate forums, together with the entire team.

 

Since I thought you might be interested, I have accumulated all the pen brands, I could find, in this topic, alphabetized by country, with the brands also appearing in alphabetical order. Furthermore, if several pen brands occur(red) more than once, I have added the company or main brand in curved brackets, and if a main brand/company produced another brand, I have tried to add that brand in curved brackets as well, although this is a far from complete exercise so far. In case a brand opened several factories, in different countries, I have tried to indicate this as well.

 

This info has been scraped from some of the pen books I am lucky enough to own, and the internet, with due reference especially to our own site right here, and to the Soloplumas website, which you may find here: http://soloplumas.blogspot.de/. Other pen sites which proved useful were generally the sites of traders in pens, especially vintage pens, several blogs, etc. As always when doing these searches - Google is one's friend :).

 

The idea is to try and keep this list up to date, and if any of you notice that pen brands are missing, please add those to this list, preferably with a reference; I will add them to the appropriate country.

Similarly, please let me know if any typos were made, I'll gladly correct those too, and also any main brands for the brands listed. In case of incorrect attributions, please let me know too, preferably with a reference too: the idea is to, possibly, create an entry per brand with some sort of description if at all possible (time-wise), or if you yourself would like to do so - by all means post it, and notify me.

 

For convencience's sake, portions of this topic will be copied to the relevant forums as well.

 

Thank you all very much in advance!

 

Warm regards, Wim
