This beautiful Number 30 set in cracked ice dates from about 1952 with the No. 24 fountain pen and No. 18 pencil with matching cap bands.
The No. 24 pen has deeply crisp imprints, still with the white infill: “The Conway Stewart No. 24. Made In England”.
The 14ct nib is a medium point, smooth and with some flex. Closed the pen is 12.9cm and when the cap is posted, 15.8cm.
The matching No. 18 pencil also has a crisp imprint: “The Conway No.18. Conway Stewart London”. The cap is twisted to move the lead and there are spare leads in the chamber. The pencil is 12cm long.
A fine set in the classic Conway Stewart 1950s style.
Condition: excellent. The No. 24 pen has very good pearl and black colour, a little brassing on the end of the clip and some scratches on the lever. The barrel imprint is outstandingly crisp with all the white infill still. The medium nib is a smooth writer with good tipping and the pen has ben serviced.
The pencil is in fine condition, with very beautiful colour still, just a touch of brassing on the top of the clip and, unusually, none at all on the cone. The imprint is very deep and clear and the pencil is in excellent working condition.
