Pelikan Souveran M600 Art Collection Fountain pen - Glauco Cambon (Special Edition)
A VAST COLLECTION OF HISTORICAL PELIKAN ADVERTISING POSTERS FROM THE AVANT-GARDE AND THE ART NOUVEAU AND NEW OBJECTIVITY ERAS TAKES ON A NEW FORM HERE AND NOW: WITH THE UNIQUE SPECIAL EDITION OF PELIKAN, THE SOUVERÄN M600 PELIKAN ART COLLECTION GLAUCO CAMBON.
The exhibits of the advertising posters represent the treasury of the Pelikan Art Collection. It is time to share this historical treasure from the Pelikan Archive with the world: Our unique Special Edition pays homage to the poster art of great painters and graphic designers of the avant-garde. Through the newly interpreted motif on the fountain pen, a piece of Pelikan’s history becomes a work of art itself.
On intricately designed posters, branded products have been staged ever since. Great painters and graphic designers of the avant-garde, such as El Lissitzky or Kurt Schwitters, create product advertisements using Pelikan colors for the first time. The resulting treasure of impressive posters and posters from the years 1900 to 1950 represents a remarkable piece of Pelikan’s history. Fritz Beindorff, the former owner of the Pelikan company and a passionate art collector, is one of the first industrialists to seek collaboration with artists. Already in 1898/99, the art patron initiated the first poster competition.
THE ELABORATELY DESIGNED BARREL OF THE SOUVERÄN M600 IS CRAFTED USING THE SOPHISTICATED „AURORA“ PROCESS.
Initially, a brass tube is worked on, engraved, and guilloched, creating fine grooves that achieve the unique light-reflecting hologram effect. Ten layers of clear lacquer give the writing instrument a smooth, flat surface, which is then printed with the colored image motif after polishing. The final multiple polishing of the barrel brings out the iconic pen’s high gloss shine.
The cap, front section, and piston grip of this elegant piston-filling fountain pen are made of high-quality resin with self-polishing properties. The 14-karat two-tone gold nib glides smoothly and expressively across the paper. The golden decorative elements, as well as the characteristic double rings and the Pelikan-typical beak-shaped clip, are adorned with 24-karat gold.
Filling System: Piston
Nib: 14kt Gold
