Conway Stewart 388 in Marbled Burgundy

Regular price £105.00

The Conway Stewart 388 was made, in England, from 1939 until around 1955.  The pen remained unchanged during this period but from 1939 to 1950 it was stamped as 'The Conway Stewart 338' and from 1950 to 1955 the stamp was changed to 'Conway Stewart 388' as on this pen.

The pen has been restored and tested, it is in excellent working condition throughout.  At 12.7 cm. capped and a most impressive 15.8 cm. when posted for use it is a long elegant pen.

A lever filler, it features a 'lock down' system, the lever clicks securely into place when closed rather than relying on the ink sac keeping the lever in position.  A new ink sac was fitted and the pen fills well and takes up a good volume of ink. The 14Ct. Gold nib writes with a medium line, perhaps a little on the fine side. 

The box is new and unbranded but will serve well for protection, transport, and display.

The Conway Stewart 388 is a fine example of an English made lever filling pen.  The marbled burgundy colour of this pen is extremely attrctive and is one of the less common marbled colours.  It is a a high quality pen with an excellent pedigree, it would make a first class vintage daily writer.
