George Henry Sackett is an obscure fountain Pen maker, but an interesting one none the less. From 1855 to 1878 Sackett was a member of the jewelry company Sackett, Davis & Co of Providence, Rhode Island.
In several W. S. Hicks Advertisements, it is noted that Hicks was the sole manufacturer for the Sackett Pen.
This article is part of the Manhattan Pen Makers Project, originated by Ron L. Dutcher. Except for typographical corrections, the text is as Ron published it. Ron wanted to include photos of advertisements or pens from each maker; he had some photos, but the gallery was far from complete. Photos here are a mixture of what Ron had and what I have been able to add from my own photo library. As with other reference articles on this site, you should not take this information as absolutely authoritative or complete.
