Conway Stewart Churchill in Poinsettia
Conway Stewart Churchill Poinsettia
A beautiful pen with a festive flavour
The Conway Stewart Churchill
For many pen collectors the Conway Stewart Churchill is the epitome of a classic pen... Striking design, elegant, nice weight in the hand - and always likely to receive admiring glances. So when our Production Director spotted some Churchills among the components we acquired last year, we were keen to show them immediately. But when we realised they were Poinsettia acrylic, we had to hold them back until this time of year.
Only 14 available
Unfortunately, there are only 14 Churchills available in this wonderful acrylic colour so early reservation is essential if you'd like to add one to your own collection - or purchase it as a special gift.
Each pen is housed in an original Conway Stewart black leather presentation box which doubles as an elegant desk display and comes complete with Certificate of Authenticity, Conway Stewart User Guide and a special anti-tarnish polishing cloth to keep your pen in sparkling condition.
Flag Fountain Pen Ink rangeBottled exclusively for Bespoke British Pens by one of England’s oldest ink manufacturers, this range of inks is the perfect partner for your pen.
Available in a range of colours in 80ml bottles, you can choose the colour to reflect your mood!
We hope you like these 8 exciting colours, all designed to fire your imagination and put sparkle into your penmanship!
The pen that costs $800,000
When we were approached by a company based in Coventry to make a bespoke pen for them that they intended to give away to their customers, we were happy to oblige - of course! But what started as almost a casual enquiry turned into one of the most exclusive pens we have ever had the privilege to make.
You see, the company, David Brown Automotive, makes rather special cars... Cars that will cost the owners almost £500,000 or around $800,000! The DBA Speedback GT has been the dream of company owner, David Brown, for many years. Although he is not related to his namesake, the originator of Aston Martin and after whom the famous DB range was named, he is passionate about the retro style of the DB5 and the Jaguar XKR and has designed and built a car that is utterly fabulous - The Speedback GT.
Based on the chassis of the XKR and the styling of the DB5, DBA's engineers have created a masterpiece. And the pen is quite special too! The clip has been designed to replicate the side indicator strake of the Speedback; the engraved pattern on the barrel and cap is the same as that used on the speaker mesh and the endof the barrel has wrap-around claws, just like the rear light cluster.
The first Speedback GT has recently been delivered to the first customer, along with the first Speedback GT pen - both engraved with the chassis number, 001. We believe the customer is delighted with both car and pen!
And of course, if you'd like one of these very exclusive pens, we like to think it will cost you around $800,000 - and the car comes free!
