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.
Here we have a lovely No.15 restored and ready to write with a fine 14k Gold nib. The nib is a delightful soft fine, with a little spring to it, responsive and lovely to write with. This pen has been very well preserved and has a delightful colour scheme.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings.
There are some minor micro-scratches on the pen's body but overall is in very good condition
A solid pairing for this pen would be Waterman's Serenity Blue or Mysterious blue, if blue ink is not to your taste do try out another of Waterman's wonderful range or Organics Studio vintage ink series.
