Chilton Pen Company

Seth Sears Crocker started the Crocker Pen co in Boston Mass in the 1890s.   His son Seth Chilton Crocker founded the SC Crocker Pen Co in Brooklyn NY.  The Sc Crocker Pen Co . Seth Crocker had a great new pen design and built a pen company around it. It was a pump filler and although he never became a large national pen company, he did sell some great quality pens in an array of great colors.  The finest of the Chilton line was their interesting inlay patterned pens. Instead of making overlays, they simply had metal inlays right in the plastic with very art deco designs.  Besides a great filling system and great eye appeal, their pens also some some unique features like their Lox-Top  design which kept the cap from unscrewing while in your pocket. This was accomplished by a small protrusion under the clip that would lock into the section with a little pressure from your shirt pocket coming between the cap and the clip. They also had a unique nib called the Wing-Flow which wrapped around the back of the feed to allow a lot of flex without the nib being pushed back too easily. Their last quality pen was the Golden Quill which was sold by a mail order company after they had gone bankrupt. They did have some pens sold after the Golden Quill like the Chiltonian, but these pens were inferior and may have just been an attempt to use up old parts.
