The Conway Stewart Marlborough Vintage
Limited Edition is a distinguished new design, that is inspired by the
classic styling of our vintage models and created with our present day
manufacturing techniques, resulting in a timeless new addition to the Conway Stewart Family.
The Marlborough is named after Sir Winston Churchill's family name and continues
with the tradition of our flagship Churchill model in being a visually imposing
writing instrument with ties to our proud British heritage. With a straight design to the cap and barrel
shape, and a vintage style washer clip, the Marlborough recalls some of finest
Conway Stewart pens from the 1920s. True to the early examples of Britain's Best, our
current Marlborough Vintage model is being made available in a limited selection
of genuine ebonite, the material of choice for fountain pen manufacturers
through the early 1930s. Complete with engraving accents on the cap top,
wide barrel bands crafted from solid 18 carat solid gold or sterling silver, and
a choice of traditional lever fill system, eyedropper fill, or cartridge
converter, the Marlborough Vintage looks like it has stepped right out of the 1920s.
The material chosen for the Marlborough Vintage
is of the highest quality ebonite in a choice of Black, Blue Ripple, Rose Ripple
and Woodgrain finishes. Each piece is carefully examined for colour, pattern,
and consistency. Once personally selected by our craftsman in Devon, the ebonite
material is turned into pen parts, hand assembled, hand polished, and carefully
hand fitted to ensure that every Marlborough Vintage fountain pen is kept to our
highest standards of quality.
The barrel is accented with wide solid precious
metal bands, while the bandless cap is set off with an engraved design at the
top, reminiscent of some of the very early pen designs from Conway Stewart. We have adopted a new and improved inner
mechanism for the lever fill versions that allows for an easier and more
complete filling of the ink sac, the lever itself is richly plated to match the
trim of the Marborough and adorned with the CS logo.
The Marlborough pen is substantial in style yet remains very easy to use with
the gently curved section accommodating a wide range of hand sizes. Crafted
completely out of ebonite, the Marlborough is both light in weight and warms
gently in the hand during use. Offered in a choice of 18 carat solid gold nibs
ranging from Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Extra Broad, as well as Italic
Fine, Italic Medium and Italic Broad, we feel confident that every writer will
find the perfect selection of nib grade to suit their individual writing style.
Whether you choose the large ink capacity and
ritualised filling ceremony of the eyedropper fill, the traditional elegance of
the lever fill mechanism, or the ease and convenience of the modern converter
cartridge system, the Marlborough Vintage is designed to provide you with a
wonderful writing experience in keeping with our motto: The Best of British!
Each Marlborough Vintage is housed in our
exclusive Churchill presentation packaging accompanied by a Churchill cigar, a
bottle of Conway Stewart ink, and a book of famous Churchill quotes.
The Marlborough Series is launched in a choice of
two materials -- the limited edition Marlborough Vintage in coloured ebonite and
a regular edition Marlborough which will be launched later this year and made from our exclusive hand made resin
finishes. For those seeking the epitome of style and
elegance, a fine writing instrument that brings to life the time honoured
traditions of British craftsmanship, the Conway Stewart Marlborough Vintage
limited edition fountain pen makes the perfect choice. Whether as a gift for someone special or even a
treat for yourself, the new Conway Stewart Marlborough Limited Edition will
bring a smile to the face of the most discriminating connoisseur.
