Vintage Conway Stewart N°485 Button Filler Fountain Pen (prod'n 1933-1940) For Sale

Vintage Conway Stewart N°485 Button Filler Fountain Pen (prod'n 1933-1940)

General Description A rare Conway Stewart 485 with the button filler system that was used from 1933 to 1940 and that proved excellent by all accounts. Surprisingly Conway Stewart then standardised on lever-fill as their filler-system of choice despite the high opinion of the button-fill and its large ink capacity that meant infrequent filling.

General Condition Completelyfree ofcracks, dings, bite marks, chips, plastic distortion and personalisation engraving/marking. The photos show it well: excellent shine, beautiful black depth to this celluloid pen. The pocket-clip has good tension and is finished in gold plate.

Nib14 carat gold, marked ‘Conway Stewart 14 ct Gold’’. Writes a fine with good consistent ink flow..

Dimensions length: 130mm capped, 157mm posted (no wear whatsoever from any previous posting), 123mm open. Width: barrell 11mm/Cap 13mm.

Cap Clip has good tension and is gold plated. It bears the CS logoCap. Closure: four thread-starts/half a turn to close.

Filling System Button filler compressing a rubber sac. Good positive movement of the metal filler button.

Restoration The pen has beenfully restored by the seller and has been inked, write-tested and is ready to use.

OverallThis is a sharp, historically important pen the Conway Stewart history of which there are few examples around.

Description-accuracy: I go to trouble always to describe goods honestly. Although for protection I tick ‘No returns’ on , if goods do not conform to my description in some specific way I will refund on return. Please take into consideration that vintage pens cannot be expected to stand up to the same scrutiny that you would bring to new pens unless they are described as being in mint condition. In particular certain types of plastic material can alter in shape and colour over the decades and my descriptions cannot include every variation that may have occurred since the pen was new. The presence or absence however, of significant scratches, cracks, dents and bite marks do form part of the general description. Most importantly, vintage pens can generally be restored to full functionality, and write beautifully – indeed often better than many modern new writing instruments that much cost more.

Price-basisPrices are exclusive of shipping costs and all import duties and taxes at the destination. I am happy to combine postage.
