The Conklin Pen Company® was established in 1898 during the golden era of fountain pens, and is still regarded as one of the most prominent pen manufacturers today.

Art Deco

Deco, a design era that began in the mid-1920’s, at the height of Conklin’s® fountain pen business, was a large influence on the modern art world from architecture to fashion. Conklin® pens were no exception, as they were a significant contribution to the creative new age. Conklin’s ® new Endura Deco Crest is the ideal revival of that exciting period.


From 1660 to the late 19th century filigree was ornamental work made with grains or beads. It was very popular in Italy, France and Portugal as well as India and Asia. Today filigree/overlay is a form of intricate metalwork usually of fine wire of gold, silver, copper or metal, and is used to decorate various surfaces. Filigree can be applied to any ornamental openwork of delicate or intricate design. The beauty of filigree craftsmanship is undeniable. 

The Conklin® Deco Crest™ Collection:

The first Deco Crest™ pens were manufactured by Conklin Pen Company® back in 1905. Through the years the Deco Crest™ kept its place in Conklin’s® collection by virtue of its beauty and durability.

The Conklin Deco Crest is available as a fountain pen or ballpoint, in either solid 925% sterling silver overlay or rose gold vermeil over silver.

Both are made in Florence, Italy, by the hands of the descendants of the artisans that made Florence the artistic center of the Renaissance. Added to this design of the filigree overlay is the beveled edge and gravure workmanship carved into the metal.

The fountain pen measures 5-3/8" capped, 6-1/2" posted and 4-7/8" with cap held aside. Although an overlay pen, the overlay is quite thin and light, so writing with the cap posted is not an issue.                                    

The 18-karat nib, made by the finest nib maker, has the markings of Conklin nibs with the addition of a two-tone gold and silver design on the top and is available in Broad size.                    

The Conklin Deco Crest series is available as a Limited Edition of 98 silver fountain pens. Number on the pen is 00/98.
