Can Anyone Help To Identify..?

It's probably quite a lost hope but I was hoping some kind folk might help me to identify a lovely celluloid fountain pen I bought recently very cheaply. I suspect it's just a 'junk' pen but it's very attractive and blessed with a 14k warranted nib no. 6 which writes like a dream with flex xf - bb. It has no identifying marks at all except on the clip which offers me "pat no. 83573", which I suspect refers only to the clip type. It's a shortie at only 4.5" capped but it's such a sweetie it would be lovely to put a name to it. :)

 

I'm new to pens, so hoping wiser heads might give me a clue. Couple of pics...

It is pretty and yes, likely a NoNami but be warned, lots of the "flex" in such pens was the result of cost driven thin nibs and using the flex can be very hazardous to the nibs longevity.

I believe it's probably a Conway Stewart pen. I'm not that familiar with them, but the top part of the clip has the same diamond, but the end of the clip usually has a diamond as well, but this has a ball. Could be a second-tier brand of Conway Stewart where the clip looks similar to, but slightly different from, the normal line.

 

I'd post it in the Great Britain regional focus forum. I'm sure someone there will identify it right off.

 

Good luck

Andrew

Thanks for that, I'll bear that in mind. It feels quite robust but I'm just using it as my current all day writer as it's nice and wet. :)

Thank you, Andrew, I'll try that. I didn't know there was a more 'local' forum...

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
