This pen has been lovingly used. It comes complete with box and papers. It has an 18k Medium nib.
The Heritage Collection is Conway Stewart’s celebration of timeless and classic models. Our Award Winning Duro model launched the Heritage Collection and was followed by the Award Winning Dandy Heritage. The latest monthly Special Limited Edition from Conway Stewart is the Nelson Heritage, bringing a refined combination of elegant shape, subtle engraving and stunning colour choice together in a symphony of visual appeal that truly rises above the sum of its parts.
Considered simply as a writing instrument, the Nelson Heritage will be an instant favourite, with every aspect of the shape and weight designed to make writing a pleasure.
From a design standpoint, the most prominent feature is obviously the engraving covering both cap and barrel. Or on the other hand, it might just be the striking colour! Both combine to make this monthly Special Limited Edition a real standout, and were the result of much deliberation amongst the design team at Conway Stewart. The goal from the beginning was to arrive at a design that stood out, but which was also tasteful and elegant. Rather than simply rely upon a bold colour, the design team strove to locate a middle ground that brought together new materials and mixed them with an understated engraving pattern on the cap and barrel.
The engraving pattern consists of interlocking diamonds, drawing upon the traditional Conway Stewart logo shape, running along the full length of both cap and barrel. To allow the focus of this design to be the combination of material and engraving, there is no cap band, leaving nothing to break the flow of the engraving.
The Nelson Heritage is a balanced pen that will not fatigue the hand during long use. The colour chosen is a deep green teal that blends blue and green in a pleasing shade, perfectly complimenting the engraving pattern. The cap and barrel are set off by rich jet black accents at cap top and barrel end, matched by the section. The 18 carat solid gold nib is plated with rhodium to match the sterling silver trim. The result is a classic understated writing instrument, the perfect choice for those who want to make a statement, but in a subtle way!
