BAK-FIN Golden Quill 220 x 5 nibs in J&T's Sliding Storage Tin with J&T's Multi Holder
Baker and Finnemore Ltd were known to have been
established by 1850 and had premises in James Street Birmingham.
In the 1930's the company was owned by the Barnwell Family and they were
producing 10,000 to 15,000 gross (2,160,000) pens per week!
They had well over 45 different nibs for the different trades of that times.
The Golden Quill was a nib from the 1930's, ideal for lettering
with its square cut profile.
Will write in any direction and holds a generous amount of ink.
Smooth feel over the paper.
With a medium to firm flex (elastic).
Slight disclouration to these nibs, having not seen the light of day for over 90 years. (They are not rusty)
These nibs fit into the William Mitchell Multi Holder, our own J&T Multi Holder
or of course a holder from 1930-60's.
(As a matter of interest BAK-FIN is still the registered trademark of a thriving company still in business.)
