Perry & Co.


James Perry and Co. started as dip pen manufacturers in Manchester in 1824.

They soon moved to London becoming England's largest manufacturer of dip pens as well as broadening their range of writing and stationery equipment. They became a limited company in 1876 after buying Josiah Mason, who made their pens, and Wiley & Son who were pencil case makers.

The company continued well into the 20th century.
