Photo Hunt - Plastic
The theme for this week's PhotoHunt is plastic. This one made me rack my brain to come up with something and then I thought pens! I have a small collection of vintage and moder Conway Stewart pens, a British pen manufacturer that was in operation from 1905 to the 1970's and then from the late 1990's. Some pens were and are made of silver. gold or even casein ( the milk protein) but most are made from acrylic and are very attractive.
This pen is a modern Duro. Most modern Conway Stewarts are normally made in limited numbers, usually 1,000
This is a "Cracked Ice" pattern pen "28" from the 1950s. The cracked ice pattern is very collectable but I treat my pens as something to use rather than look at.
