STORY
 
fountain pen history

In 1905, Mr Jarvis and Mr Gardner formed Conway Stewart at 13 Paternoster Row, London. Their objective was to produce elegant, timelessly beautiful, yet functional writing instrument.

In the 1920s the name of 'Conway Stewart' was trademarked. The list of filling mechanisms available expanded to eyedroppers, lever fillers, pump fillers and safeties. During the depression years, the company managed to survive by continuing to offer good reliable pens at reasonable prices. In the 1950s, with the creative use of colored plastic Conway Stewart reached its peak.  

Conway Stewart pens have always been the preferred choice of the most discerning and famous people from around the world. People such as Winston Churchill, who used a Conway Stewart pen throughout the war years, up to the present time, whereby Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth was presented with two gold pens to Commemorate The Queens Golden Jubilee.

Conway Stewart was the official pen chosen by the British Government for the G8 Summit at which Tony Blair, the prior British Prime Minister, presented a Conway Stewart No.58 set to each of the world leaders.
