Probably the most popular English pens and pencils of all time, Conway Stewarts were marketed between 1905 and 1977.
During that time many hundreds of different models were manufactured,in a dazzling array of varying colours, patterns and styles - ranging from the small lever-filler "Dinkies" to the very large button-filler "Duro" pens.

Many of the models featured here date from the period just after the second-world war, when production was re-started with the No.55 and 286 pens. In 1949 the now familiar more 'streamlined' look was introduced with the No.28 and 58 models, and these were soon followed by many others (including 12,14,15, 24,27,60,75,388...)with the now sought-after herringbone patterns being introduced in 1957,and only manufactured for the next three or so years.

Beautifully made, these pens are not just desirable collectors' items - they are also a delight to use.

(Condition Scale: F = Fair. G = Good. VG = Very Good. EX = Excellent).
