The price displayed above excludes UK/EU VAT. This will be added to your bill at checkout if you select delivery within the EU. Prices including VAT are from £390
Inspired by the classic styling of vintage Conway Stewart models of the 1920s, the distinguished Marlborough is an elegant addition to any pen collection.
Each Marlborough Lava is fitted with an 18ct gold Flag nib which, combined with the broad solid gold 9ct hallmarked bands on the barrel, creates a luxury feel that’s hard to beat.
The straight design of the cap and barrel and a vintage-style clip on the Conway Stewart Marlborough Lava recall some of the finest Conway Stewart pens from the 1920s. With a serrated pattern around the top of the cap and two broad solid 9ct gold bands around the barrel, the Marlborough looks like it has stepped right out of the Art Deco era.
Each Conway Stewart Marlborough Lava pen is fitted with one of our superb 18ct gold Flag nibs. They are available in Fine, Medium and Broad widths and bear the distinctive Flag logo.
Each pen is housed in a Conway Stewart black leather presentation box which also serves as a showcase pen stand for your desk.
All Conway Stewart Marlborough Lava pens are made and assembled from components purchased from the Administrators when the Plymouth factory closed in 2014. Please allow up to 28 days for delivery of your pen, although we often deliver in 10 – 14 days. If required for a particular date, please let us know and we’ll do everything we can to make sure it reaches you in time.
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.
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.
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.
Fountain Pen Filling Mechanism for your Conway Stewart Marlborough Lava
The Conway Stewart Marlborough Lava is fitted with a dual cartridge/converter filling system which means you have a choice of using either a cartridge as your ink source or filling the converter (reservoir) from a bottle of ink.
18ct gold Flag nibs fitted as standard to your Conway Stewart Marlborough Lava
You may select one of our Flag semi-flexible 18ct gold nibs to be fitted to your Marlborough. They are available in Fine, Medium and Broad and bear the distinctive Flag logo.
Customised nibs also available
In addition to the standard nibs, there is an option to customise any of our nibs to your own specification at an extra cost of £40.00 excluding VAT if appropriate. For example, if you prefer to write with a Stub, Italic or Oblique nib, our nib wright, one of the UK’s most experienced nib mechanics, will undertake the work to your exact specification.
