Conway Stewart 75
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
Conway Stewart 75’s were 1950s pens, appearing in 1952 and apparently produced throughout the 1950s. This pen, 12.5cm long, is in marbled “raspberry” celluloid 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, and writes a soft, wet medium with a touch of flex. Very nice later CS!
