About This Model
Conway Stewart was a major manufacturer of good to great fountain pens in England for a hundred years, from 1905-2005. During the pre-WWII years they sold far more pens than any other brand in England; one major author believes more than all the other companies’ output combined. They were very well-made, good-looking, and great writers with soft, wet, and often flexible nibs. It is interesting that they produced a bewildering quantity of models and colors, including some bright floral patterns in casein during the pre-WWII shortage years.
About This Pen
75’s were 1950s pens, appearing in 1952 and apparently produced throughout the 1950s. This pen, 12.5 cm long, is in marbled green/black with pearlescent tones in the marbling. It is a lever-filler, with the typically 50s chrome crown holding the clip. It has a single gold cap ring. The pen is in excellent condition, very clean. The nib is a Conway Stewart 5, and writes a soft, wet medium with a touch of flex. Very nice CS!
