Pelikan 180 years Limited Edition Spirit of 1838 Fountain Pen - Medium Nib
From chemist to the king of inks, Carl Hornemann had two significant traits that characterized his undertakings: scientific expertise and a great deal of passion. Thus, he founded a paint and ink factory that grew to become a company of great international success. This year Pelikan celebrates “180 years of passion” with the release of the spectacular Spirit of 1838 limited edition fountain pen. The anniversary icon is an homage to the stylish pen model that has piqued boundless desire for decades: the Souverän with a fine, pinstriped appearance that echoes the classic green and black striped design that is Pelikan’s brand ambassador and flagship.
The Spirit of 1838 charms the writer in an elegant silver and black edition with a high-sheen silver ornamentation decorating the cap, rings and Pelikan clip. The Souverän 1000 model has a sleek black resin barrel with a 925 sterling silver overlay engraved with soft pinstripe guilloche and “180 Years Pelikan 1838-2018". Look on top of the cap and you'll find the brand’s famous pelican guarding its chicks – look further to see that it has laid three radiant diamonds in its nest. They symbolize the values of trust, reliability and German-made quality, all of which Pelikan takes very seriously.
The nib represents the beating heart of every fountain pen. Thanks to genuine flair and decades of experience, Pelikan's highly-qualified craftsmen have produced the silver-plated 18K gold nib specially engraved with the “Spirit of 1838”. Of course, the pen is powered by Pelikan’s patented piston-filling system. Limited to only 180 pieces worldwide, each individually-numbered pen is one of a kind. One hundred and eighty is a small number, yet the writing pleasure will last a lifetime. If you are lucky enough to call this treasure your own, it will certainly be a special favorite in your collection. Bottle fill only.
