Rare New Conway Steward BRUNEL Limited Edition. Sterling Silver Rollerball Pen with Box (No Papers). Limited Edition 020 of 200. This limited edition from Conway Stewart celebrated the life and achievements of one of the greatest engineers of British history, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Brunel was born in Portsmouth, England in 1806. Plymouth is the home of modern day Conway Stewart and it seems only appropriate for the company to name this superb new design after this local legend. With an interest and aptitude for mechanical engineering fostered from an early age, Brunel went on to become a noted figure of his time, working on such projects as the Thames River Tunnel, the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the Great Western Railway, and the design of the first commercially successful steamships. Brunel’s legacy lives on in Britain today; in 2002 he was selected in a BBC poll as the second of “100 Greatest Britons” (superseded only by Winston Churchill). Many of Brunel’s bridges are still in use, as well as railway stations, including the main Paddington Station in London. Throughout his life, Brunel dedicated his career to seeking new technologies, reshaping mechanical and structural engineering as well as architecture. In keeping with the bold style of Brunel himself, the Conway Stewart Brunel edition is a striking construction of solid hallmarked sterling silver. The cap and barrel are engraved with a crisp design of interlocking angled lines inspired by vintage engineering drawings. The result is a classic fine writing instrument that offers a distinguished and elegant touch of refinement. The Conway Stewart Brunel is a full sized pen with polished sterling silver cap and barrel. Each piece is carefully crafted in our facility in Plymouth, England to ensure the ultimate expression of fine writing for our customers. The hallmarked sterling silver forming the cap, barrel and gripping section begins as solid rods of precious metal, not hollow stampings and as a result the Brunel features an imposing heft.
