About Conway Stewart
Conway Stewart & Company Ltd was an English manufacturer of writing instruments, founded in 1905 by Frank Jarvis and Thomas Garner in London.
Jarvis and Garner had worked for the De La Rue Company, a 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.
Some of the more notable designs made by Conway Stewart include the Duro, Series 58, ChurchHill, Dandie and Dinkie, just to name a few.
The Conway Stewart company goes through the troughs and peaks in the evolution of lifestyle and writing through the war and it was revived in the 1990s with headquarters in Plymouth, UK.
Sales started in 1998 although some models had been produced for special occasions before that, including for the heads of state attending the 1998 G8 Summit in Birmingham. The company now manufactures for 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 limited edition pens.
On 28 August 2014, the company was placed in receivership. The remaining stock, as well as the machinery and tooling, were liquidated and its offices closed. On November 11, 2014 the owner of the Wahl-eversharp Mr Caltagirone Emmanuel register the trademark Conway Stewart for the USA and there is no doubt that the revival of the brand is planned for 2015 at least for the US market.
