The Full Story
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.
Stunning pen, in a highly collectable cracked black ice pattern with a delightful semi flex nib, which flexes from a fine to a broad and writes very smoothly. The pen will no doubt bring a great deal of pleasure for writer's and collector's alike.
The fountain pen is in very good condition.
The pen has been fully dismantled, ultrasonically cleaned and polished, fitted with a new inc sac and nib tuned.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings
The clip does show some tarnishing and there is a scratch just above the cap bands, some minor ink stains on the barrel threads. But truly a clean example, with bold crisp barrel imprints - a very nice pen in very good condition
The 14k Gold Nib has been tuned and writes beautifully, this is a classic example of a vintage semi flex nib at its best. Line variation can be achieved - from a fine to a broad
