This Limited Edition 'Conway Stewart Dandy Bronze' is made from a complex acrylic material composed of many shades of brown and gold in marbled pattern, and has quality gold plated fittings. The complexity of the Acrylic material used means no two pens will ever be the same. The Dandy Bronze typifies the understated elegance of 1920's pen design and for many years has been one of Conway Stewart's most distinctive profiles. Discreet in size, which adds greatly to it's charm, the Dandy was reintroduced as a limited edition in 2014.
This Conway Stewart Bronze was assembled using original Conway Stewart components, acquired by Bespoke British Pens in October 2014, when Conway Stewart went into administration.
This Conway Stewart Dandy Bronze was only available as a lever fill pen. It is one of only 50 pens ever made in this edition, making it extremely rare and collectable.
