Conklin's new Endura Deco Crest is the ideal revival of that exciting period. Great concepts and innovative ideas will stand the test of time. The Conklin Pen Company of Toledo, Ohio, USA built and earned a reputation of high quality and careful work-manship that made one proud to own a genuine Conklin pen. Unfortunately, the Conklin Pen Company ceased production in 1955. The brand was brought back to life when the company was purchased in 2000.
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 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. Today, the collection is revived in its new release.
