CS980 Conway Stewart Winston, boxed (Medium).

Date: c2010

Size: Length - 142mm capped; 178mm posted.

A beautiful and pretty much pristine example of a Classic Green Winston in its original box with all accessories including an unopened bottle of ink, the Churchill cigar in its aluminium holder, the warranty booklet and the book of Winston Churchill quotations.  The Winston was an oversized pen, similar in size and heft to the Churchill model, but with a slightly softer, more rounded shape.  The cap has a large top button which holds on the gold plated pocket clip.  Below this are two narrow solid 18ct gold bands.  On the barrel is a large and clear imprint which includes the serial number of the pen.  This of course matches the one written in the back of the warranty booklet along with the manufacture date of 2010, so quite a late production example and only a year or so before Conway Stewart went out of business.

The Winston pen was available as a piston filler and also as a cartridge/converter pen.  This is an example of the former, more desirable, type.  It has a barrel end blind cap which, when unscrewed, reveals a knurled brass filling knob.  The nib is a lovely and large Conway Stewart in 18 carat gold and a medium point.

The original box is also in excellent condition with its unmarked black satin lining and original outer paperboard case.  

 A great writer's pen, the large gold nib is nice and soft and writes with a smooth and consistent medium width line.
