 This is a really short pencil with a very nice imprint:  "Zip-On Howlett & Hockmeyer Co. New York." 

The "Directory of Directors of New York," 1917-1918 edition, lists James R. Howlett, Thomas J. Howlett and Clive E. Hockmeyer as directors of Howlett and Hockmeyer.  Another source indicates the company was still functioning in 1925.

A company trading under the Hockmeyer Equipment name is still engaged in the ink business.  Whether this is the same Hockmeyer is a continuing topic of my research.  Help is appreciated!
