Elegance Pen of the Year 2013
In 2006 Conway Stewart launched the 'Elegance' series consisting of several limited editions, each created with different designs and produced with the highest quality of English craftsmanship. The Deco Diamond was the first of this new series, followed by the Westminster Green, Westminster Teal, Elizabeth Garret Anderson, the Elements Series, Oliver Cromwell, Plumage Grey, Mandarin Yellow Plumage, Aztec, Jaguar and our Fistral.
The exclusive designs featured on our Elegance model begin with the cap and barrel hand crafted at our factory in Devon, England from rods of solid sterling silver. Each writing instrument is then carefully engraved with intricate patterns and accented with a hand applied enamel by award winning craftsman Robert Glover, whose work has been published in numerous industry titles and who is the recipient of many notable awards and presentations.
Not only is there an art in the creation of the enamel colours, and the application of multiple layers to our sterling silver pens (Robert often uses a trimmed natural goose quill to apply the various colours of enamel) there is a significant craft to the careful hand polishing of the finished enamel piece to render every enamel surface precisely the correct depth above the guilloche engraving to allow for the best reflection of transmitted light through the vibrant colours.
Following the success of the over-subscribed Elegance Pen of the Year 2011, Conway Stewart has launched the Elegance Pen of the Year 2013, a unique design that will be limited to just 30 pieces world-wide in a choice of fountain pen or roller ball writing modes. The design is again inspired by Festive Season decorations in rich blue enamel that is layered over the guilloche engraved sterling silver, giving emphasis and depth to the gently flowing engraved enamel panels on the caps and barrels and laurel motif on the cap band.
The hallmarked solid sterling silver construction of the cap, barrel and front section are set off with our popular 18 carat two-tone gold nib, accented with rhodium plating and available in eight nib widths allowing the ideal choice for your individual handwriting style. Ink is delivered via the reliable converter cartridge system. Every attention to detail has been taken to ensure that the Elegance Pen of the Year 2013 Blue Laurel is not only a visually perfect pen, but one ideally suited for everyday use.
The Elegance model is crafted to be ergonomic in shape, slightly tapered and is a mid sized pen that rests perfectly in the hand, a perfect harmony of balance and elegance for ease of writing.
The Elegance Pen of the Year 2013 Blue Laurel is available in a limited edition of only 30 pieces offering a wonderful
opportunity to experience the finest in English craftsmanship in a truly exclusive fine writing instrument.
The Elegance pen of the year 2013 Blue Laurel is destined to become a classic, and a future heirloom.
