About Conway Stewart
Conway Stewart & Company Ltd was a British manufacturer of writing instruments, founded in 1905 by Frank Jarvis and Thomas Garner in London.
Jarvis and Garner had previously worked for the De La Rue Company, the leading British fountain pen manufacturer of the time. Drawing on the experience they had gained at De La Rue, the two started their own business, initially reselling fountain pens manufactured by other companies. The name “Conway Stewart” was apparently derived from a popular music hall act of the time.
Conway Stewart went through tumultous ups and downs during and emering from post-war austerity in Britain. It was in 1950s which became the golden years for Conway Stewart with the creative use of colored plastic reaching its peak. This, however, did not save the company and it was wound up in 1975 before being resusitated again in 1990s with headquarters in Plymouth, United Kingdom.
Conway Stewart continued to manufacture some of the high-end of the writing instrument market and the range is characterized by the use of precious metals, enamels, celluloid and casein plastics and the production of Conway Limited Edition pens. Some of the more notable pens are the Winton Churchhill Limited Edition pens, Rose (British Rose) and Harlequin, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and HRH Prince Philip on the celebration of their golden wedding anniversary 20 November 1997 and earlier models like the Dinkie and Duro.
The company finally closed for good when the last Managing Direct, Don Yendle sold the company again in 2003 to an investor. The stock of Conway Stewart pens that we hold is probably one of the most precious final inventory you can find.
