british triptych

Conway Stewart Dandy, Yard-O-Led Viceroy Victorian and Yard-O-Led Retro.

OK, I have a sweet, soft spot for UK. Have had it since I was a kid. The Yard-O-Led and Conway Stewart pens have definitely contributed to revive the little anglophile in me.

Sterling silver, attention to details. Lovely, special clips reminding of the twenties. The Yard-O-Leds in silver and black and the Conway Stewart in cracked toffee brown (like almond brittle) with sterling silver details.

The Conway Stewart has a Medium Italic nib that writes like a dream – I am so happy that I found this NOS Conway Stewart and could have the nib changed (only £10) into my favourite CS nib. The YOLs have impressive, stubbish bold nibs. All three both a joy for the eye and hand. Reviews will follow…

    Must admit, I’ve never been all that interested in Yard-O-Led, but both of these are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing them :)

    Very nice trio!

    I love my CS Churchill Dartmoor with IM nib so much that I had to order an other one in Classic Brown with IF nib recently!

    Thumbs up!

    So how old is the CS? A modern model I take it? It’s a lovely plastic.

      It is just a few years old – no vintage, but they aren’t made anymore, which I think is a pity since the Dandy is one of their real classics. The plastic is really beautiful and looks like a yummy almond brittle (one of my faves).
