  • An Introduction to Cross - Making Their Mark Since 1846

    Known as America's oldest manufacturer of fine writing instruments, Cross was established in 1846 and it still remains headquartered at its place of origin, Rhode Island.

    crossbannerWith many pen lines in their collection there is a writing instrument for every occasion and to suit every person. Many of the lines have been around since the very beginning of Cross, such as the Peerless and Townsend ranges. Both of these are in Cross' luxury collection which is famed for its designs in precious metals like silver, gold, and platinum as well as stunning details like inset precious stones.

    The Peerless was Cross' first fountain pen, created in 1889, and it was named so because there was no competition or 'no peers' to match its exquisite design meaning it quickly became an American favourite.

    The Townsend line came into fruition in 1991 and had a design inspired by the stylish 1930's Art Deco period, they were recognisable by their distinctive finishes, precious metals and the signature double band. The Townsend may be familiar to you as it is has been the pen of choice for many American presidents including Barack Obama.

    These three Townsend writing instruments with Black Lacquer and Rhodium plate showcase that classic design but with bright, bolder finishes. These stylish Townsend's can also be engraved making them a stunning personal gift whether you are treating yourself or someone special to you. To shop simply click the image below.

    Most recently they have taken some of their most well known pens such as the Cross Century II and Click and combined them with elements from popular culture and film. The result was three Cross Century II pens inspired by Marvel and three Click pens influenced by the epic franchise that is Star Wars.
