Type  Fountain Pen .... might be made of casein, so don't soak it in water or it will melt!

Product Name  Conway Stewart 540 aka "Dinkie".

Manufacturer and Year  Conway Stewart UK -- c. 1927-30

Length  3-1/16". Very small!

Filling System  The pen fills via a lever. We replaced the bladder and it is working well, and we will guarantee the filling system for a year.

Color  Black with a 3-tiered knurled black ringtop. The trim is gold plated.

Nib  14k Conway Stewart nib is medium-fine, flexible and very smooth. We don't have a writing sample for this specific pen. Lots of tipping material.  

Condition Very nice condition for this dainty little pen.  No cracks, chips, dents, or dings.  A fair bit of scratching (this little guy has been places and seen some things!), though in hand the pen still looks quite nice. Plating wear on trim. The imprints are nice and clear.

Returns Policy: No questions asked, money back guarantee. If you have a problem with an item, we will replace/repair it, or refund your money, the choice is up to you. If you decide you don't like the nib after you've inked a new pen, we'll refund 75%. (There will be no such charge for a pen that is pre-owned, provided you return it in the condition received.)

Payment Policy: Paying via Credit Card or PayPal are the only methods allowed for addresses outside the United States. Customers from the United States also have the option of sending a check, money order or cashier's check. Payment method is selected during checkout.

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country. Most of our customers opt for the very reasonably priced first class mail method, which can take anywhere from one to four weeks. We are happy to discuss alternatives to the options currently offered during the checkout process, so please contact us if you'd like a quote.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
