The Polly Gray Pen
The third pen in the Peaky Blinders collection is dedicated to Polly Gray, the Aunt of Tommy and Arthur, and the matriarch of the Shelby family. She looked after her nephews when they were young, and managed the family business when they were fighting in WWI. A powerful and perceptive lady, Tommy seeks her advice and confides in her. Polly is a certified accountant, company treasurer of the Shelby family, and is definitely first among equals in a man’s world.
Always dressed to kill, this fountain pen would have suited her perfectly.
Based on the traditional Conway Stewart Churchill pen in Bordeaux and black. Fitted with 9ct gold rings and an 18ct gold CS nib, the Polly Gray Pen is engraved on the barrel with one of her famous quotes from the series:
"Brave is going where no man has gone before"
A specially designed cap emblem combining the Shelby saying ‘By Order of The Peaky Blinders’ and their link to horse racing is in the top of the cap. It is made from gold-plated sterling silver and in the centre of the emblem is the Conway Stewart CS logo.
Each pen is accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authenticity bearing a facsimile of Polly Gray’s signature and confirming its edition number which is also engraved on the end of the barrel.
The wide 9ct gold cap band is laser engraved with the Birmingham hallmarks; another link back to the Shelby Family home city.
Limited to a worldwide edition of only 500
