The Full 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 fountain pen is in overall very good condition.
The pen has been taken apart, cleaned, polished and fitted with a new inc sac
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips cracks or engravings
There is some mottling to the cap evident in the photos and the pen shows the usual signs of wear and use for a pen of its age.
The 14k Gold Nib writes a lovely smooth medium
The cap posts easily to the barrel, giving the pen a comfortable feel in the hand, despite its dinkyness!
