Albert Bagley

Albert Bagley was an early American pen & pencil case maker. His most widely known improvement to pencil cases was U.S. Patent # 006981, which created a double layered tube on the upper half of the pencil case, allowing the item to be extended to a full length for ease of writing. His pencils and combinations rarely had his name on them, but the inner upper barrel would have the patent date - January 1, 1850.
