CS796 Conway Stewart No. 286. (Soft Medium)

Date: c1930s

Size: Capped - 5 3/16 inches, posted - 6 1/2 inches.

A lovely large glossy black Conway in excellent condition.  There are no splits, cracks or chips and not even any noticeable surface scratches.  The only damage I can find on this pen is some plating wear to the stem of the filling lever.  This pen is made from jet black celluloid with a large conical-ended ebonite cap top button holding on the washer style gold filled pocket clip.  The clip has the "CS" monogram within a diamond shaped cartouche at the top and another diamond at the bottom.  There is also a single gold filled cap band and this is undamaged with no brassing at all.  The flat-ended barrel has a nice crisp and clear imprint and a short gold filled filling lever.  It has a circular end tab with the "CS" monogram again within a diamond shaped cartouche.  The black hard rubber section, also undamaged and glossy, holds the large and undamaged Conway Stewart No. 5 nib in 14-carat gold.  It looks to be in a medium point.

I have fully serviced this pen.  The nib is very smooth in use and lays down a very nice wet and medium width line.  The nib has some softness to it and it will give you a little bit of line width variation as you write - it can easily manage and degree between a fine and a broad line.     

An excellent and good looking writer.
