Conway Stewart Britannia Sterling Silver Fountain Pen

Conway Stewart Britannia Sterling Silver Fountain Pen
The ancient Latin name for Great Britain is Britannia, and originally referred to the Roman colony on the island, transforming in time into the identity of a martial goddess complete with spear, shield, and centurionís helmet. In the eighteenth century, this depiction became popular as the national expression of British Imperial power, and the unity of the nation. Since that time, Britannia has occurred as a theme consistently on coinage, postage stamps, and throughout art in Great Britain.

The Conway Stewart Britannia is a full sized pen with polished sterling silver set of by an elegant engraving design along the cap and barrel. Each piece is carefully crafted in our facility in Plymouth, England to ensure the ultimate expression of fine writing for our customers. The hallmarked sterling silver forming the cap and barrel begins as solid rods of precious metal, not hollow stampings, as a result the Britannia features an imposing heft. The graceful pattern adorning the cap and barrel is inspired by Art Nouveau designs and adds the perfect finishing touch to this bold new design.

The refined flat-top design of the Britannia recalls the classic era of the 1920s, when a fine fountain pen was considered not just a luxury, but an everyday necessity. Like those traditional pens of yesteryear, the Britannia is balanced to ensure comfort in the hand, whether jotting a short note, or writing a lengthy letter to loved ones.

The Britannia is balanced precisely at the solid sterling silver gripping section, allowing the pen to feel as a natural extension of the hand when in use. When in the pocket, the classically styled clip holds the Britannia securely in place. A choice of nib widths is available to ensure the perfect writing style for your tastes. We also offer three widths of italic cut nibs, which give everyday handwriting a special flair. Ink is supplied to the Rhodium masked solid 18 carat gold nib via the reliable and easy to use cartridge converter system. Users can choose between the wide selection of brightly coloured bottled inks, or the ease and convenience of ink cartridges. The Britannia is packaged in our rich and elegant diamond presentation box.
