Description

This magnificent pen is an example of British craftsmanship at its finest. Made from solid sterling silver and engraved with an intricate hexagonal interlocking panel design on the cap and barrel, the pen has been overlaid with hand-applied vibrant orange and charcoal translucent enamels in the style of Carl Fabergé.

The striking colour combination on cap and barrel appears to ‘ripple’ as you use it, like the skin of the South American big cat, after which it is named.

The Conway Stewart Jaguar in Sterling Silver is the last of a series of sterling silver pens produced by Conway Stewart in the ‘Elegance’ range. Based on the shape of the much-loved Conway Stewart Series 100 model, the Elegance editions were all made from solid sterling silver and richly decorated with art-deco engraved patterns and overlaid with vibrant enamels.

The pens are believed to have been designed by internationally renowned silversmith Robert Glover who also undertook the detailed engraving and enamelling.

Without doubt, this is an exceptional pen. Its perfect balance in the hand, combined with classic design and intricate guilloché engraving and enamelling make it a highly desirable addition to any Conway Stewart lover’s collection.

 SOLD OUT! Only 1 remains from the original limited edition of 100

Originally issued in 2012 in a limited edition of 100, we recently uncovered sufficient parts from the stock of components we acquired from the administrators in 2014 to make up just 5 complete Conway Stewart Jaguar pens. We have sold 4 and now only the final one remains. The original Conway Stewart edition register confirms that the 5 edition numbers (39, 40, 41, 45 and 46) were never allocated to customers – making them something of a rarety for CS collectors.

Provenance and Authenticity

All the components for this pen were acquired by Bespoke British Pens from the Administrators of Conway Stewart Manufacturing Ltd in October 2014 following the closure of the Conway Stewart factory in Plymouth, Devon. As such, you can rely on the provenance and authenticity of these components as genuine Conway Stewart parts which have been carefully assembled by our technicians to a very high standard.

Please note that these pens bear the original Conway Stewart hallmarks on the cap and you will find the Conway Stewart insignia clearly visible on the clip. The original Conway Stewart certificates are not available (they were probably never issued as the pens were still in component form!) so we will provide our own Certificate of Provenance confirming its origin as a genuine Conway Stewart pen.

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.

Filling Mechanism:

Each Conway Stewart Jaguar pen is fitted with a converter (reservoir) which allows you to draw ink from a bottle or alternatively, you may remove the converter and use standard European ink cartridges. We will include 2 cartridges with your pen so you can start to use it immediately. If you prefer to use bottled ink, we recommend our own range of high quality ink, made in England and available in a range of colours. You will find details of colours available here: https://www.bespokebritishpens.co.uk/product/fountain-pen-ink/

Nibs available:

The Conway Stewart Jaguar is fitted with one of the original Conway Stewart 18ct gold nibs which has been rhodium plated so it matches the sterling silver of the rest of the pen. We have the following nib widths available in Rhodium plated gold: Double Broad (BB), Broad (B), Italic Broad (IB), Italic Fine (IF) and Extra Fine (EF).

If you prefer to use a special nib – a stub or oblique, for example – you can have the nib ground to your exact specification by one of the UK’s leading nib-masters. Just complete your specific requirements in the ‘Custom Nib’ section.
