A.T. Cross Company started producing writing instruments around 1876 (maybe earlier), with the stylographic pen. These pens were eye dropper fill and spring/tip activated (far left piece). Mechanical pencil production started at about this time also. This picture shows the stylo pen and several pencils. The black hard rubber pencil is the earliest of the bunch. The others are dated between 1915 - 1935.
