Conway Stewart 28
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
During the 1950s, Conway Stewart produced a breathtaking array of pen models, sizes, colors, and patterns. Their models were aimed at workers, writers, and executives. This No.28, made from 1949-58, is in a green hatched pattern that was frequently used in their largest and fanciest executive pens, but at 12.8cm long capped and 1cm wide, this pen is a more typical size. The gold trim is in excellent shape. Its Conway Stewart No.28 imprint is complete but shallow. The nib is gold, marked Conway Stewart 14C Gold, and writes a typically English soft and wet medium. A deeply attractive pen, can be used all the time, but protect its lovely appearance with a case.
