550 Dinkie

Conway-Stewart first offered a “Dinkie” in 1922.  As with other pens of this sort of dimension, it was marketed as suitable for both gentlemen’s vest pockets and for ladies (whose pen keeping habits were very mysterious, but uniformly called for small pens).  The 550 is a later incarnation of the line.
