The Conway Stewart Quail Stylo No 3
February 18, 2013 2 Comments
This little Conway Stewart began life as a stylo, the Quail Stylo No 3 to be exact. It was subsequently converted into a fountain pen using a short, thick feed and a folded-tip white metal French nib. I suspect that it didn’t work well as the inside of the section is stepped, meaning that the feed didn’t fit as it should.
I searched Stephen Hull’s Fountain Pens For The Million and The English Fountain Pen Industry but found no reference to this stylo. There is no mention of it in Jonathan Donahaye’s list either. Of those listed, it most resembles the Pixie 113 Ink Pencil.
Does anyone know anything about this stylo?
There seems little point in posting an enquiry to Fountain Pen Network’s Conway Stewart section as all those with a good knowledge of the brand left some time ago. Sad business. I’ve posted to Fountain Pen Board instead.
