The Arnold pen company was started by Remmie Arnold in 1935.
Remmie Arnold had worked for the Edison Pen Co and left to start his
own company. He knew that their was a large market for low priced
fountain pens and he built his pen company into one of the largest
fountain pen companies in the world. His pens sold at dime stores
and discount stores all of the country [and many other countries].
Most of his pens were priced from 19 cents to 89 cents. He did sell
some pens with gold nibs, but they are very hard to find today [they
sold for one dollar].
Most of the Arnold line were lever fillers. Pen pencil combos were
probably their biggest seller.
Although the Arnold pens were not high priced, they did come in some
great colors and they were made fairly well. They have plated trim
and most have gold plated nibs. The main interest in them today is
for their varied colors.
