The Marlborough is named after Sir Winston Churchill's family name 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 finest Conway Stewart pens from the 1920s.
True to the early examples of Britain's Best, our current Marlborough Vintage model is being made available in a limited selection of genuine ebonite, the material of choice for fountain pen manufacturers through the early 1930s.
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, eyedropper fill, or cartridge converter, the Marlborough Vintage looks like it has stepped right out of the 1920s.
The material chosen for the Marlborough Vintage is of the highest quality ebonite in a choice of Black, Blue Ripple, Rose Ripple and Woodgrain finishes. Each piece is carefully examined for colour, pattern, and consistency. Once personally selected by our craftsman in Devon, the ebonite material is turned into pen parts, hand assembled, hand polished, and carefully hand fitted to ensure that every Marlborough Vintage fountain pen 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. Crafted completely out of ebonite, the Marlborough is both light in weight and warms gently in the hand during use.
Offered in a choice of 18 carat solid gold nibs ranging from Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Extra Broad, as well as Italic Fine, Italic Medium and Italic Broad, we feel confident that every writer will find the perfect selection of nib grade to suit their individual writing style.
Whether you choose the large ink capacity and ritualised filling ceremony of the eyedropper fill, the traditional elegance of the lever fill mechanism, or the ease and convenience of the modern converter cartridge system, the Marlborough Vintage is designed to provide you with a wonderful writing experience in keeping with our motto: The Best of British!
Each Marlborough Vintage is housed in our exclusive Churchill presentation packaging accompanied by a Churchill cigar, a bottle of Conway Stewart ink, and a book of famous Churchill quotes.
The Marlborough Series is launched in a choice of two materials -- the limited edition Marlborough Vintage in coloured ebonite and a regular edition Marlborough which will be launched later this year and made from our exclusive hand made resin finishes.
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 Vintage limited edition fountain pen makes the perfect choice.
Whether as a gift for someone special or even a treat for yourself, the new Conway Stewart Marlborough Limited Edition will bring a smile to the face of the most discriminating connoisseur.
The Marlborough Vintage is limited to only 300 pieces of each ebonite finish and for the first time, in a choice of three filling mechanisms: Lever Fill, Eye Dropper and the convenient Converter Cartridge.
