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 flex nib. The nib writes a fine line, it is smooth and flexes to a medium / broad with a little pressure.

There are some marks and micro-scratches where the cap meets the barrel, a touch of brassing to the gold trim and some scratches on the cap and grip section
All this said, these imperfections do no detract from the overall appearance of this handsome pen
