Medium nib, Lever fill system.
This Conway Stewart No.286 was made in England around 1940. In the montage it looks as though the colour is black, in fact it is a rather attractive Forest Green which is not often seen. The barrel sports the Conway lever and has a black end. The text reads “The Conway Stewart” with “No.286” on the line below. Around the bottom of the barrel are the words “Made in England”. The cap carries the Conway arrow clip with diamond shaped CS emblem and one thin cap band. Conway advertised their pens as “The Pen with the marvellous nib”. In this instance the nib has a medium point and reads “Conway Stewart 14ct Gold 5”. It is a good size pen measuring 128mm with cap on and 162mm with cap on barrel end. Condition is good with only minor age wear and some brassing to the trim. An attractive Conway in an unusual colour, suitable for everyday writing or to add to a vintage fountain pen collection.All fountain pens are professionally serviced and bench tested prior to offering for sale.
