The 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. 

The Conway Stewart No.55 is a highly desirable pen, here in the sought-after blue marbled pearl pattern with a delightful DURO nib. The nib is a 14k gold stub nib which writes smoothly and with a hint of line variation.

The pen has been fully restored and is ready to write 

The Nitty-Gritty 
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, a touch of brassing to the gold trim. The lever bar is slightly recessed into the barrel (see last photo) but is fully operational 

All this said it is a handsome pen in excellent condition, and it writes beautifully
