Arnold pens were produced in large quantities for many years in Petersburg, Virginia. Remmie Arnold started the company in 1935, after working for the Edison Pen Company (see my posts on Artcraft Pens – Ford Cromer, one of the Artcraft Founders, also got his start at Edison!). In the years that followed, Arnold became one of the largest producers of fountain pens in the world. They concentrated in very inexpensive pens (less than $1.00) and were sold primarily in low end stores. As with most third tier pens, there is little to no advertising associated with the pens as well, due to the low price points.. But they did sell lots of them (and eventually ballpoints). Finally, due to the low price points, they were also not built to last, and as mentioned above, most have not survived in good condition.
