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.27 in the grey pearl cross hatch pattern, with wide gold cap band and signature conway stewart clip. The pen has been fully restored and comes ready to write with a 14k gold oblique medium nib
The pen has been remarkably well preserved and it took little to bring it up into near mint condition.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings.
The pen is in near mint condition. Only minor signs of wear, a touch of brassing on the clip, a tiny mark on the section, and the cap jewel is not all black, but these are very minor imperfections indeed, this is an excellent example.
The nib is a firm oblique medium. It writes with no flex, but is steady and reliable with good ink flow, smooth on the page and a medium dry writer - a perfect everyday workhorse. Do take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery
