Carey Of New York Pen Questions


Recommended Posts


I recently was blessed to come across some old pens. This one really caught my eye. It looks to have mother of pearl on it. The nib reads Carey New York 14k No 5. Very little information about Carey to be found. Anyone have any to share? Is this a Carey pen? I have seen others that are similar but of different names. It is engraved. Engraving says A.M. Drum (pretty sure that is a name because the other pens/pencils have the same initial on them). S.C. South Carolina? Armstrong Council No. 92- D of L. Thank you

Researching an eyedropper I acquired with a gold nib engraved Walker Davison a few years ago , I discovered that ebonite fountain pen barrels and caps were being manufactured mainly in Massachusetts at the turn of the last century and sold to jewelers. Walker Davison being one of them in Boston. Carey may well have been a jeweler in New York buying manufactured barrels and caps and making the gold nibs and overlays.

They came as a boon, and a blessing to men,
The Pickwick, the Owl and the Waverley pen

Sincerely yours,

Nice.... :) :thumbup: :notworthy1:

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

Armstrong Council, Daughters of Liberty was in Pittsburgh, PA.



I may be wrong, but that could be a pre-1915 pen. In 1915, Daughters of Liberty became Son's and Daughters if Liberty.



I don't think the SC means South Carolina. I think it might mean Second Class.

Peace and Understanding
