A.T. Cross is America's oldest manufacturer of writing instruments. Established in Rhode Island in 1846 by Richard Cross and Edward W Bradbury. Their first fountain pen appeared in 1889 and they called it the 'Peerless' because there were no peers to match it; it rapidly became an American classic. In 1953 they produced their first ballpoint pen, after eight years of perfecting the existing technology. They have since turned out a host of classic designs, many of which have remained in their catalogue for decades – testament to their timeless popularity and their confidence in being able to offer a lifetime guarantee against mechanical failure.
