Pelikan Souverän - a true classic. In the year 1929 Pelikan was the first company in the world to introduce the differentiated piston mechanism. To this date, this fountain pen exists in many different variations, and though it has been developed in design and technical details over time, the basic mechanism remains the same. In 1950, the model 400 was launched. With its green-striped sleeve, it has become a world-wide symbol for the brand of Pelikan.
If you are looking for that certain something, or you, quite rightly, enjoy a sophisticated taste, or you simply wish for more elegance then you are absolutely right here. Pelikan tradition-steeped field "fine writing" offers you high-quality products, perfectly combined with tried and tested brand quality, as well as perfected and refined state of the art elegance.
Pelikan - This brand stands for reliable writing instruments with a wide product range. Pelikan are conscious of tradition and resort to decades of experience, because, whether it is a fountain pen, a rollerball pen or a ballpoint pen, one writing instrument is not like the other.
The beginnings of the Pelikan Company trace back to the
chemist Carl Hornemann, who made his customers an offer for oil paints, watercolors and for so called "farbige Dinten" - colored inks, on April 28, 1838. This price list - safely restored in the Pelikan archives - was the foundation of the company’s manufacturing line, from which the worldwide known trademark Pelikan has developed.
The small manufacturing site continued to grow and constantly expanded its range of products. The school products developed from the paints, e. g. the Pelikan opaque paintbox, which has become a daily essential in German art classes. The "Dinten" generated the famous Pelikan writing instruments on the one hand and its office accessories with inks for ink jet printers and toner cartridges for laser printers, on the other.
