From the two "blue and cream" it is the one with the single ring in this post's first image

Here is a better image. The clip is inscribed Arrow in cursive with an Arrow going through the letters.

I am glad this thread made a new appearance and let me catch up on this little bit of pen history. Once again, Antonios, you have shown us some beautiful and lesser known pens. One of these days I have to get back to my old home town and get a tour of your collection.

You should get a Yink, I think.

All,

 

Another Morrison sub brand, I believe....

 

I just ran across a Nassau Lever Filler. I will post a picture in the future after it comes off the workbench. I am currently trying to get the section removed. The clip has the familiar "M" in wreath and the name "NASSAU" following. So, I believe Nassau joins Marathon, Morton, Arrow, and Roxy as Morrison sub brands

 

Does anyone else have any further brands to add, or disagree with these?

Just to revive this old post on Mortons with some pictures of a new acquisition. A near perfect Morton Duet.

Here is another little Morton Duet set - a rather cute ring top model in fine condition with great colour. I guess it would be from the 1930's or so?

 

The nib is a 14K ~0.8mm stub which is too broad for my writing tastes, so this little set will live quietly in my collection, inside the coffin box case which has protected it this well so far. :)

May I add:

The stickers purported to be mint - eraser on pencil is very dirty however. The pen has no sac and may be mint because the section nipple is very clean. I was happy to find this (in my mind a Sumgai) and one of the few that I left the 2006 DC Supershow with.

 

Great thread - I searched here before but never found this thread.

Good to see you here, and thanks for the nice photo.

As for the search the FPN default is to search for the last 30 days.

Maybe we need to ask to change this.

Great Find RichKen - I have not seen a Morton Box like that - only Morrison's.

 

Here a few more Morton's, in much poorer shape

I believe the bottom pen is very similar to the one in your box - it is the same woodgrain, though my camera did a poor job.

As I mentioned above the Morton pens in their boxes are marked as made by

Union Fountain Pen Co of New York. In the 1941 Annual Report of the FTC (http://www.ftc.gov/os/annualreports/ar1941.pdf) the Union Fountain PEn Co. is order to cease and desist of misrepresenting gold content and passing off regular merchandise as custom-built merchandise; marking up;

representing all repairs will be made without cost when a

charge is made for such service: fountain pens. smile.gif

Hi Pablo your gorgeous pen is not related to the Morton pens that we are discussing here.

I think (I am not knowlgeable about this) that this has to do with A. Morton & Co. that George was talking about at the beginning of the post.

Hi, Antoniosz, thank you very much for your answer.

I will ask George, do you have any idea of any collector the may be interested on it?

Hi AZ,

 

You asked whether anyone could point you to or share information regarding Morton Pens. Are you talking about A. Morton & Co., a penmaker who made gold nibs and penholders, or another penmaker who made fountain pens?

 

Have you got any pics?

 

George.

I asked Antoniosz, and he Sais that this pen could be related to the one you where asking for.

If you have any new information that you may share with me I will really appreciate it.

Thank you in advanced.

Pablo,

 

I had forgotten about it but you will find a some information about A. Morton pens in this old post:

https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/in...showtopic=14104

It is about the german company Kaweco but if you read it you will see the connection with A. Morton.

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
