The Conway Stewart Churchill Bordeaux Chased

The award-winning Churchill model is now available in Bordeaux Chased acrylic named after the region of France famous for its red wine. The body and cap have been engine turned to have a beautiful tactile barley weave pattern carved into the material which not only looks stunning but has a wonderful feel. A must-have pen for any wine or pen connoisseur.

The relationship between the English and  Bordeaux  wine goes back a long time.  In the 12th century the popularity of Bordeaux wines in England increased dramatically following the marriage of King Henry II and Alienor d’Aquitaine. The marriage made the province of Aquitaine English territory, and thenceforth the majority of Bordeaux claret was exported to England  in exchange for other goods. The citizenry of Bordeaux worked diligently to promote and foster their relationship with the English market. In 1205, the Spanish laid claim to Aquitaine and put Bordeaux under siege. The village was able to withstand the attack and King John rewarded the Bourgeois with orders for wine in excess of 120 tons. In 1224, King Louis VIII of France attempted to purge the English from French soil and was halted in his advance in the town of Bordeaux. In the aftermath Bordeaux received privileged access to the English market through London, and their exports to the market soon dwarfed the production from other French wine making regions​.

Inspired by the great British statesman who used Conway Stewart pens during the war years, the Conway Stewart Churchill is in every way an impressive pen, and not least because of its size. Strikingly elegant, the Churchill has been Conway Stewart’s flagship pen for many years.

Each fountain pen is housed in an original Conway Stewart black leatherette presentation box which doubles as an elegant desk display, and comes complete with Certificate of Authenticity, Conway Stewart User Guide and a special anti-tarnish polishing cloth to keep your pen in sparkling condition.

    Delivery

    Because of the bespoke nature of all our pens – nib configurations, fitting options etc, we rarely have pens available ‘off the shelf’. As soon as we receive your order we will email you with a confirmation of your order and provide you with an estimate of the time required to assemble, configure and thoroughly test your pen. This is usually between 10 and 14 days, although in busy periods it could be up to 28 days.

    Once your pen has passed quality control it will be carefully secured in its presentation box before being packed for despatch.

    All our pens are despatched using Royal Mail and as soon as we have handed it over to Royal Mail, we will email you with a despatch confirmation. This email also provides you with a tracking number which will enable you to track your parcel.

    UK Deliveries

    For delivery to UK addresses we use the Special Delivery service which means your pen will be delivered within 24 hours, usually before 1pm, on the day following despatch. We advise you by email when your pen has been handed over to Royal Mail and provide tracking information so you can trace the whereabouts of your pen on the Royal Mail tracking website: https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item . You will need to sign for your parcel on receipt.

    International Deliveries

    For delivery to overseas addresses we use Royal Mail’s International Signed For service which means you will need to sign for the parcel to confirm receipt. We advise you by email when your pen has been handed over to Royal Mail and provide tracking information so you can trace the whereabouts of your pen on the Royal Mail tracking website: https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item. Once the parcel arrives in your country, your local postal service takes over responsibility for delivery, although you can still use Royal Mail’s ‘Track and Trace’ system. In some countries, you can use the Royal Mail tracking number we provide on your local postal service website. For example you can use Royal Mail Tracking numbers on the USPS website to track your parcel in the USA. In other countries you will need to check with your local postal service to see if they can track international parcels in this way.

    If you have any doubts or reservations about the security of your national parcel delivery service, you can always ask for your pen to be delivered by one of the internationally recognised courier companies (Fedex, UPS etc). Just make a note when you order and we will be in touch regarding any additional charges for international courier delivery.
