The poppy has long been associated with World War I and is the inspiration behind this magnificent pen, issued to commemorate the centenary of the First World War and dedicated to the extraordinary heroism and fortitude of the soldiers involved in appalling conditions.
This special Poppy Edition is based on the award-winning Churchill in black acrylic – with a twist! Strikingly elegant, the Churchill has been Conway Stewart’s flagship pen since its introduction in the 1990s and now comes with a hugely tactile pattern chased into the acrylic and enhanced by sterling silver fittings.
We think it’s the perfect combination and is further complemented by a poppy ‘button’ in vitreous enamel and sterling silver inserted into the top of the cap. It’s a subtle but poignant reminder of the sacrifices made 100 years ago.
