dandy in the evening sun

A little tribute to my Conway Stewart Dandy. This pattern (official name “Bronze” but I think of it as  fudge or almond brittle coloured) is just magnificent in broad sun light – and especially this warm evening sun.

This is by the window in my study – in the evening sun that now has found its way here. The nib on the dandy is a medium italic.

I find italics and stubs photogénique – much more so than fine and extra fines. These were (as most of my photos – I am too lazy and unskilled to photoshop more seriously) SOOC .  As usual: click on pics to view in bigger size.

    It’s a lovely pen and a lever filler! Yes, I do love those anachronistic filling systems. :D

      Thank you! I am a little irritated by the fact that it is not possible to check the ink level in a lever filler, but it is a nice and simple (and beautiful) mechanism. I really like CS’ attention to detail on the lever on this pen.

    Very nice pen and pics as always….

    Wonder how that Bronze color compares to my ‘Bracket Brown’ color Churchill?

    Looks somewhat similar, but different….

    Very nice pen…
