PELIKAN
MODEL 100



In 1929 this stationery German manufactory first produced a fountain pen. It was a piston filler with a new technology for filling systems. A differential threading works inside of the barrel filling in ink from a ink pot. The mechanical parts were made with high precision and soon they became as well-known writing instruments.



Engravings around the captop


Pelikan models 100 have an engraving around the captop. Conditioned to the very long production time there are different engravings.

"Pelikan PATENT Pelikan PATENT"
"Pelikan D.R.P. Pelikan D.R.P."
