Conway Stewart was started in the UK in 1905 by Frank Jarvis and Thomas Howard Garner, in a small first floor office in Paternoster Row London. They initially sold pens made up of parts that they bought in from other manufacturers. , During The 'Golden Years' between the 1920’s and 1940’s Conway Stewart enjoyed a lofty reputation as the premium British brand and produced some of their best designs during this period. The long lasting 14 carat gold Duro nibs are an integral part of their success along with their beautiful colour schemes and finishes.
The Conway Stewart 36 is a highly desirable pen, here in the sought-after lined blue pearl pattern with a delightful fine flex nib. The nib writes a fine line with a touch of flex and line variation. The pen has been fully serviced and is ready to write
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings.
There are some marks and micro-scratches where the cap meets the barrel, and there is a small split at the top of the cap where the tassie is secured. This is approx 2mm in size and stable, it doesn't show signs of increasing. Overall a very clean example, crisp imprints, lovely gold trim and a 5* nib.
The nib is a gorgeous Conway Stewart 5N nib, 14k gold fine flex nib. Writes beautifully
