This topic is a compilation of the old pinned topics from the old Conway Stewart forum. Partly copied to here, partly links to the old topics, that are now unpinned.

 

This way we will get much more space for the normal topics.

 

 

 

Be aware that some of the information may become out-dated now Conway Stewart has ceased operations in the Fall of 2014.

We are requesting the members of FPN to recognize this forum as a 'friendly environment'. It is important for new members to feel welcome, eliminate any feelings of intimidation when posting messages and of course to encourage guests to be active in our forums.

I am currently serving as monitor on the CS forum and do not feel it necessary to censor all negative remarks about CS pens. FPN has a very large audience and is a non-commercial site, not governed by sponsors. Constructive criticism is always welcome, but if the message is an obvious attempt at brand bashing, it will likely be invisibled.

Should you have a personal grievance concerning the working of a modern Conway Stewart pen, please contact me by email (unvalid link deleted)

 

Snide comments and troll type brand bashing do not do this forum any justice, and definitely does not encourage other people to start collecting fountain pens.

Hi,

Below is a translation of the Conway Stewart hallmarked cap band.



The letters, 'CS' are the company mark. This must be on every hallmarked Conway Stewart piece.

Next are Scales which are known as the common control mark.

Next is a Finesse mark with a number referring to the purity of the metal. This must also be on every piece.

Next is the Assay Office mark. The Anchor is for Birmingham. The Assay Office mark must be on every piece.

Next is the Crown which means this is Gold. The Lion is the mark for Sterling Silver.

Last is a Letter which denotes a year.



Kind regards,

Mary Burke

* Extra Fine 0.5 mm
* Fine 0.7 mm
* Medium 0.9 mm
* Broad 1.2 mm
* Extra Broad 1.4 mm
* An italic nib is about 0.1 mm wider than its standard counterpart.

Kind regards,

I often receive emails from owners of vintage Conway Stewart pens asking for help to identify the model and year of production of their pen.  There are a few sources I refer for information and the one that is most easily accessible through the internet is the 'Conway Stewart Book of Numbers' by Jonathan Donahaye.

 

http://jonathandonah...book/cslist.htm

 

Jonathan Donahaye collected Conway Stewart pens for many years and was known to have one of the most comprehensive collections of vintage Conway Stewart pens. Through his energy and passion in collecting Conway Stewart pens, he created an extensive on-line reference for all vintage Conway Stewart enthusiasts.

 

Please let me know If you would like me to pin this topic so that the link for information on vintage Conway Stewart models stays visible within this forum.

 

Kind regards,

 

Mary Burke

 

 

 The "home" page http://jonathandonah...aystewart.info/ contains a lot of info as well.

There is a topic with the Conway Stewart Colour Codes and an example of most of the modern colours.

Especially the colourset is too large to make this topic readable if you are not looking for the codes, so here is the link to that topic.

Hi,

As promised, here is the link to a new web page detailing the dimensions of our models. There are a couple of models to add, and I will be updating the page continuously as new models are launched.

Above is a quote of Mary Burkes Dimension topic.

At the moment of writing this page can still be accessed.
