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 58 all time classic. At a trifle under 13cm in length and 12mm in width it is a very well proportioned pen. Triple gold cap rings adorn the cap whose clips is accented with the CS badge. The finish is stunning and very well preserved. The nib is a classic semi flex, offering line variation from a fine to a broad +. Lovely!
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings.
The pen is in excellent condition, however the lever bar does have some brassing and so too the top of the cap clip. Otherwise minor signs of wear are present but nonetheless the pen is a very clean and well presented example.
The nib is a gorgeous Conway Stewart 58 semi flex, original to the pen, which writes with good ink flow and ample amounts of flex. Do take a look at the writing sample in the photo gallery!
