And Conway Stewart introduced their Ink Visible pen in 1937, based on a patent registered the same year. The model 800 was the premium Ink Visible model with the single cap band. The piston is operated by a knurled knob with the ink level visible through the transparent window above the section.
The barrel imprint is a bit feint but legible: “The Conway Stewart Ink Visible No. 800. Made in England”.
The Conway Stewart 14CT nib is a broad point with just a little flex.
Closed the pen is 13cm, and with the cap posted, 15.3cm.
The model 800 is one of the more difficult pens to find now and especially in the cracked ice pattern. This is a beautiful example in excellent working condition.
Condition: excellent; the piston mechanism has been restored and fills well with good ink window transparency. The celluloid colour is excellent, both the black and pearl veining. There is some brassing on the end of the clip and on the bottom rim of the cap band.
