Conway Stewart Dinkie Pen and Pencil Combo (On Ebay)

Here is a Conway Stewart Dinkie 550 Pen with matching pencil. These pens really are dinkie measuring in just under 4″ long. This body of this pen is casein. It’s a very nice blue/ pearl swirl pattern that has a matte finish. Casein bodies are pretty, but they are also prone to issues. The pen has two creases that have developed. One is on the cap and the other comes from the bottom of the lever. You can’t hardly see them, but if you look for them they are not too difficult to find. The gold filled trim is mostly in decent condition. The clips and bands look good. The stud on the caps was originally brass I believe. The lever does show some brassing as does the section of the pencil. Imprints still look great. The 14kt. Conway Stewart nib is a very smooth writer. It’s not terribly wet, but the flow keeps up fine. A pretty little portable pen.
