Given only those three colors, I would have to choose the Nebula. I have the Belliver in the LE Borealis edition, which is similar to the Nebula in color, and it is visually stunning. My favorite of my 3 resin CS pens, for sure.

My new Conway Stewart 100 arrived. I saw the three colors that had been offered and decided that I preferred the pistachio coloring of the 60th Anniversary Special Edition.
 
It has just arrived and I must say that I am very pleased with it.

That looks really nice. Still deciding whether or not to get a pistachio - very tempted looking at yours Bobby!

The 100 pistachio with silver trim finish will not be repeated on future 100 Series pens.  It is limited to only 60 numbered pieces and it will not be possible to order the 100 Series in the pistachio as a bespoke finish.

 

The regular edition 100 Series is offered in a choice of three colours with gold trim: Black, Fresian, and Nebula. All of which is very different when compared to the pistachio colour consisting of dark green, pearlescent green and amber shades.

 

I wish you good luck in your decision :)

 

Kind regards,

 

Mary Burke

I purchased this pen with a soft fine nib and have discovered it even has a bit of flex.
 
The more I use the pen, the more I enjoy it!

Thanks for this. I know that there are very few pistachios up for grabs. I'm struggling to decide whether to go for one as I have ordered six 100 series from my local pen shop to have a complete set of each of their designs for their anniversary special editions. Not sure I've got enough left over for a pistachio as well even though I really like the colour and design.

Glad to say that I've got my 100 series back - all problems now sorted - even managed to keep the extra fine nib which now writes beautifully! I think that that on this colour, I prefer the now "older" style silver nib rather than the new two-tone one. As a goodwill gesture, I even received a CS twin pen holder/wallet! :)

 

My other pens have arrived too so pictures to be included later. Once again, apologies for my poor amateur photography.

Thanks everybody - I'm really enjoying this pen - think it will become my main writer for the time being.

 

Pictured below is my "Aurora" 100 which also arrived this week - it has the new two-tone nib and is a fine. not managed to ink it yet but just happy admiring the colours for now.

Enjoy

Those are both great looking pens:  the conservative silver trimmed black chased resin, and the bright and cheerful gold trimmed aurora (?) resin.

Can you give us some details about this pen please? Is it brand new? Where did you purchase it? Is the color called Aurora? I have a Belliver in a color called Borealis which looks very similar to your 100. I wasn't aware that CS made this color in any other model. Love it in the 100 too.

Hi,

 

The pen in the image is the new 100 Series in the Nebula finish.  

 

The Nebula has been a popular colour for many Conway Stewart models.  The hand-made resin is a mixture of blue, purple and red, interspersed with accents of pearlescent white. When you turn the pen in your hand, the pearlescent shimmers and makes all the colours come to life.  

 

Kind regards,

 

Mary Burke

Ah, thanks Mary. To quote myself (above) "visually stunning". His photos really make the Nebula color glow, and it looks outstanding in the new 100 with gold trim!!

Hi - as mentioned in a previous post somewhere, I am very lucky in that I live in one of the few cities in the UK that has an independent specialist pen shop - FG Thomas. As this shop celebrated its 100 year anniversary of trading in Sheffield last year, the owner Gary Ellison (who is a member of this network - gee009) commissioned 100 pens of 5 differing designs to commemorate it. The pen shown is brand new and is a "Thomas Edition Aurora" and is limited to 20. I have seen the Belliver Borealis which I too think is a similar colour.

 

I have no affiliation to the shop - I only started collecting fountain pens in January of this year. I'm just a very happy customer as Gary has been extremely helpful in teaching me more about the hobby and introducing me to brands that I had never even heard of before entering his shop.

 

Below is a picture of the rest of my collection so far - the blue pen has a cap band designed by Henry Simpole.

I like that capband.....I find a whole overlay just too much of a good thing, but his is great.

 

Enjoy your lovely pens.

 

The shop, FG Thomas, is he the one of Sheaffer'S fame? Wanted to visit him 2 yrs ago when I was on holiday but learned that the shop was closed as he was off to the DC penshow.....

Gorgeous!  

 

I was aware that Gary was talking with Christine Care (Operations Director) to arrange for these special editions, but did not have the opportunity to see the final decision of colours and designs.  This edition is a hit and I am sure will sell out quickly!  
 
It looks like the 100 series with the Henry Simpole cap band has a longer cap, but that could be just an illusion.
 
I am sorry that I did not know the final choice of colours, and I was referring to Andy's Pens website for the picture of the Model 100 in Nebula.
 
Kudos to Garry and Christine for making the above 100 series available in celebration of FG Thomas company's centenary anniversary!

 

Kind regards,

 

Mary Burke
