b. July 1952 – d. June 2020
Henry was one of the most famous and admired British designers of overlay pens. As a silversmith he had a global reputation and in 2004 he started his association with Conway Stewart by designing the Centenary Pen. The design cleverly incorporated the “C” and “S” of Conway Stewart and their founding year “1905” but you have to look closely to see them. This became one of Henry’s trademarks, hidden letters and numbers in complicated and beautiful filigree work. Henry went on to design and make many more pens for Conway Stewart which were sold around the world. His overlay and are now prized by pen collectors.
Henry designed and made the following Conway Stewart pens:
1, The Conway Stewart Centenary pen- Limited edition of 100 in sterling Silver & 100 in Vermeil
2, The Conway Stewart 'Henry Simpole' pen - Limited edition of 50 in sterling Silver & 50 in Vermeil & 25 in 18ct Gold
3, The Conway Stewart Exhibition 'Giant' Pen- Limited edition of 100 in sterling Silver & 100 in Vermeil
4, The Conway Stewart Chatsworth- Limited edition of 100 in sterling Silver & 50 in Vermeil & 25 in 18ct Gold
5, The Conway Stewart Marilyn Monroe Pen- Limited edition of 90 in sterling Silver
