Pelikan M1005 Spirit of 1838
From chemist to 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. Pelikan is celebrating “180 years of passion” on April 28.
The demands placed on high-quality writing instruments are
very high. And justifiably so. For this reason, we place an
emphasis on sophisticated craftsmanship that works its way
into the finest detail. Each unique Pelikan piece reflects our
passion and skill – we make quality an experience. This is how
we have worked for 180 years – and this philosophy continues
to guide us every day.
The nib represents the beating heart of every fountain pen.
Thanks to genuine flair and decades of experience, our highlyqualified
employees produce pieces of fine gold with strong
character: A silver-plated gold nib with special engraving
crowns the “Spirit of 1838”. You notice it at first glance:
ink in this pen is also its lifeblood.
From Carl Hornemann to Günther Wagner and Fritz Beindorff.
Three successful businessmen with foresight and character.
In the first 60 years of Pelikan alone, they lay the foundations
for an aspiration that is still maintained today: A varied range,
the highest quality, and healthy growth. In the ‘Pelikan District’
of Hanover, the factory’s machines worked double shifts.
They were ready to move onto the international market.
Small stones with a dazzling effect. You can see that the famous
pelican in the cap is guarding its chicks, and if you look further,
you will also find that it has laid three radiant diamonds in its nest.
They are an allegory for the values of trust, reliability, and being
Made in Germany, all of which Pelikan takes very seriously.
A brilliant idea.
Our anniversary icon is an homage to the stylish creation that
has piqued boundless desire for decades: The Souverän with
a fine, pinstriped appearance. Our classic in a green and black
striped design is Pelikan’s brand ambassador and flagship.
These days it also charms the writer in an elegant silver
and black edition. A charismatic presence with a unique spirit. Each piece is unique. Each piece is also a favorite. Each piece
features an engraved edition number too. While that may sound
quite technical, it also means that there is an outstanding,
natural allure to these pens: The allure of exclusivity. Limited
editions create desire – the desire of owning one of the 180 pieces
created worldwide. One hundred and eighty is a small number,
yet the pleasure lasts a lifetime.
Classic elegance meets a premium finish. High-sheen silver
ornamentation decorates the cap, rings, and Pelikan clip on our
anniversary edition. The barrel also appears elegant with fine
sterling silver and soft guilloche. If you are lucky enough to call
this treasure your own, it will certainly be a special favorite in your collection.
SPIRIT OF 1838.
We will be having number 5 and 10. For those who wish to get it…..
