This Conway Stewart Series 100 Limited Edition Lava is made from a complex acrylic material composed of many shades of orange. The complexity of the lava material means no two pens will ever be the same.
Always popular with pen collectors, the Conway Stewart Series 1OO has stood the test of time and is as popular today as it was when it was first introduced in the autumn of 1954 and was seen as the flagship pen of the company going into its Silver Jubilee year – 1955. Today’s version of this iconic pen, the Conway Stewart Series 1OO Lava, carries all the same features as its predecessors, notably the triple banded cap, the distinctive rounded shape and the Conway Stewart clip. Fitted with solid 18ct hallmarked gold cap and barrel rings.
