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 nibs are an integral part of their success along with their beautiful colour schemes and finishes.
The Conway Stewart No.58 is a highly desirable pen, here in the rare and sought-after tiger eye pattern with a delightful fine Duro flex nib. The nib writes a fine line, it is smooth and flexes to a medium / broad with a little pressure. An extremely high quality nib with little metal fatigue which writes beautifully.
The pen comes in its original Conway Stewart box, with guarantee and has been fully restored, ready to write.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings.
There is some tarnishing on the cap clip and trim, but otherwise the pen has a bright lustre and is in remarkably good condition, with bold crisp imprints and beautiful tiger eye celluloid.
