e Power of the Pen
by Jessica Kosinski

For as long as humanity has existed, communication has been essential. Today, computers are commonly used to communicate. It is easy to send an email across thousands of miles in a matter of seconds. However, handwritten communication is also still a part of modern culture, and it is one many of us take for granted every day. There was a time when modern writing implements did not exist. People wrote using quills and containers of ink. That is, until an incredible innovation called the fountain pen was developed. Let’s take a peek at the development of fountain pens, their impact on communication, and how to collect them today.

A good quality mid 19th century American gold mounted combination Propelling Pencil and nib holder, the barrel formed from “India Rubber”. The barrel is imprinted “Goodyear’s Pat. May 6 ‘51,” a reference to patent number 8,075 issued to Nelson Goodyear of New York on the 6th May 1851. The chased gold terminal set with a bloodstone seal and unscrewing to reveal a lead reservoir. The pencil is extended by twisting the lower half of the barrel and the pen slides out via the slider ring. (photo: Steppes Hill Farm Antiques Ltd)
