Celluloid Pens.

Manufacturer and Builder ?, 1893

It is stated that in France pens for writing are now being made from celluloid in the following manner: Thin sheets manufactured from celluloid, ebonite, vulcanite, etc., corresponding with the outlines of a pen, are stamped out, punched, and finally laid in a softened condition in a press that has been heated, by which means they receive the desired shape. After being cooled in a water bath, the pens thus obtained are split with a knife.
