Esterbrook Relief models were made in the UK by Conway Stewart and are excellent quality fountain pens, well known for their superb nibs.

Black domed cap top - single cap band - 'R' logo to filling lever. Measures 130mm closed.

Barrel imprint  'RELIEF No 2-L.' Made in England around barrel end.

Correct 14ct Gold nib stamped -'Relief 14ct 2 Made in England Esterbrook.' Nib in very good condition.

LEFT OBLIQUE ITALIC - very nice smooth MEDIUM and a delight to write with as most Reliefs are.

Lever filler - fully serviced - dismantled and ultrasonically cleaned - new sac - nib smoothed and tuned - hand polished and write tested - perfect working  order.

Pen is in excellent used condition. Normal light usage marks only. No cracks or scratches.  Correct in all respects.

Vintage Reliefs are very collectable pens both in their own right and by Conway Stewart enthusiasts. The mottled examples are becoming a little difficult to find.
