Inspired by the classic styling of the vintage Conway Stewart vintage models, the distinguished Marlborough is created with our present day manufacturing techniques, resulting in a timeless new addition to the Conway Stewart Family.
The Marlborough is named after Winston Churchill’s illustrious forebear the Duke of Marlborough and continues with the tradition of our flagship Churchill model in being a visually imposing writing instrument with ties to our proud British heritage.
With a straight design to the cap and barrel shape, and a vintage style washer clip, the Marlborough recalls some of the finest Conway Stewart pens from the 1920s.
Complete with engraving accents on the cap top, wide barrel bands crafted from solid 18 carat solid gold or sterling silver, and a choice of traditional lever fill system or cartridge converter, the Marlborough resin range looks like it has stepped right out of the 1920s.
The Marlborough regular edition is crafted from the highest quality hand made resins exclusively made for Conway Stewart. Each piece is carefully examined for color pattern, and consistency. Once personally selected by our craftsman in Devon, the resin material is turned into pen parts, hand assembled, hand polished, and carefully hand fitted to ensure that every Marlborough writing instrument is kept to our highest standards of quality.
The barrel is accented with wide solid precious metal bands, while the bandless cap is set off with an engraved design at the top, reminiscent of some of the very early pen designs from Conway Stewart.
We have adopted a new and improved inner mechanism for the lever fill versions that allows for an easier and more complete filling of the ink sac, the lever itself is richly plated to match the trim of the Marlborough and adorned with the CS logo.
The Marlborough pen is substantial in style yet remains very easy to use with the gently curved section accommodating a wide range of hand sizes. Available in a choice of five hand made resin finishes made exclusively for Conway Stewart: Classic Green, Graphite, Meteor, Razorshell and Sapphire Blue.
Sapphire Blue is glowing, electric, vibrant and more! It is a combination of shimmering blues and opalescence, drawing inspiration from a summer sky blue serving as a base for the pearl highlights that flare to life at the slightest movement of the pen under light.
Whether you choose the traditional elegance of the lever fill mechanism or the ease and convenience of the modern converter cartridge system, the Marlborough is designed to provide you with a wonderful writing experience in keeping with our motto: The Best of British!
The packaging for the Marlborough regular edition has been designed to house your pen and to serve as a showcase pen stand for the desk. The display box is crafted of luxurious full grain leather in a rich black color. Not only is this an elegant and stylish presentation to house and protect your gift, the top of the lid can be reversed to make an executive desk stand for display.
For those seeking the epitome of style and elegance, a fine writing instrument that brings to life the time honoured traditions of British craftsmanship, the Conway Stewart Marlborough range makes the perfect choice.
