Description

The Battle of Waterloo – Background and history

Just over 200 years ago, on 18 June 1815, the coalition armies of Great Britain, Prussia, Netherlands and Hanover, under the leadership of the Duke of Wellington, faced Napoleon’s French army at Waterloo, some 15 km south of Brussels, in a battle that was to end Napoleon’s rule as Emperor and determine the shape of Europe for the next 100 years. This magnificent Conway Stewart Wellington Waterloo Edition commemorates the 200th anniversary of the momentous battle and comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity confirming the edition number of your pen.

Napoleon’s wish to become Emperor of Europe had very quickly started to become a reality after his return to France from exile in Elba. Within days, he had been able to raise an army of over 300,000 men and was intent on driving the British into the North Sea and over-run the Prussians before turning his attention to Austria and Russia.

His ambition, however, came to an end at Waterloo where the British forces, ably supported by the Prussians under the command of Field Marshall Blucher, proved to be far too resiliant for the overstretched French army. The coalition forces drove the French back in disarray and eventually arrived in Paris where they restored King Louis XVIII to the throne. Napoleon surrendered and was exiled to the remote island of St Helena where he died in 1821.

You will receive your Conway Stewart Wellington Waterloo Edition in a Conway Stewart black leather presentation box which also serves as a showcase pen stand for your desk.

Nibs available:

The Conway Stewart Wellington Waterloo Edition comes with a cartridge/converter filling mechanism and you may select one of our flexible 18ct gold nibs to be fitted. They are available in Fine, Medium and Broad and bear the distinctive Flag logo.

Provenance and Authenticity

All the components for the Conway Stewart Wellington Waterloo Edition were acquired by Bespoke British Pens from the Administrators of Conway Stewart Manufacturing Ltd in October 2014 following the closure of the Conway Stewart Plymouth factory. 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 do not bear any engraving on the barrel that you may have been used to on relatively modern Conway Stewart pens i.e. the edition number, colour reference or Conway Stewart logo.

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. If required for a particular date, please let us know and we will do everything we can to make sure it reaches you in time.

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.
