Mabie & Todd Co Ltd was started circa 1845, when Henry Todd and John Mabie combined their business for the manufacture of pen holders, pencil cases and the other related products. Around 1878, the company began its production of fountain pens.
The ‘Swan’ pen trademark is first adopted in 1884.
In 1909 production of pens is begun in England and the tradmark ‘Swan, the pen of the British Empire’ comes into use. Eventually, ‘Swan’ became another word for ‘pen’ in the popular lexicon.
Around 1923, the firm began production of its line of ‘Eternal’ pens, featured the lever fillers. These were very solid and well made pens, with several attractive colours available.
Till now, Swan fountain pens are highly sought after by collectors around the world.
