CS821 Conway Stewart Dinkie No. 550 Fountain Pen and No. 25 Pencil Set, boxed (Soft Medium)

Date: c1950s

Size: Length Capped - 4 3/16 inches; Length Posted - 5 inches.

This is a very attractive Dinkie set in lovely glossy and unmarked burgundy marble with black veining.  Both items are in lovely condition with the only damage that I could find on either piece being some very minor discolouration to the plating on the point of the pencil.  The caps have a small conical gold filled top button that holds on the pocket clips that have the "CS" monogram within a diamond at the top and another diamond at the bottom. 

Fountain Pen

The barrel imprint is crisp and deep and the cute little filling lever has the "CS" monogram imprinted in the circular end tab.  The nib is shiny and totally undamaged and is in a medium point.

Pencil 

The cap has a very good deep and crisp imprint.  The cap pulls off for access to the eraser holder - the pink eraser looks so have been barely used.  There are several spare leads beneath the eraser.  The point is also gold filled.  The leads are propelled and repelled smoothly by twisting the cap.  I have fitted a fresh 1.18mm lead into the mechanism so it is all ready to go.

Box 

A lovely burgundy and cream coloured "camouflaged" pattern paperboard presentation case.  This is also in excellent condition outside, with fold trimmed edges; but the pad is missing from inside the box. 

I have fully serviced this set. The pencil works perfectly.  The fountain pen has a medium width nib that writes with a very smooth and wet line.  The nib has a tiny bit of softness that will give a little spring into your writing.
