Pelikan The Colossus of Rhodes Fountain Pen3.500,00€
Colossus of Rhodes
A gift to eternity
Pelikan’s “Colossus of Rhodes” fountain pen honours a technical and artistic masterpiece that is unique in terms of size and grandeur. The bronze statue of the Greek God Helios, the worshipped sun God and patron saint of the Aegean island of Rhodes, was worked with exceptional architectonic and artistic skill.
Only specially selected materials were used, such as marble for the pedestal, iron for the inner frame and bronze, partially refined with gold, for the outer skin.
The Pelikan fountain pen, which like its historical paragon, is partly made from bronze, combines traditional craftsmanship with the highest degree of design and technical expertise. The valuable writing instrument is pre-sented in an artistically designed case that has a feeling for the stylized harbour of Rhodes where the statue is said to have once stood.

Pelikan M800 Souverän Fountain pen Blue-Black425,00€ – 450,00€
A true classic
In 1929 Pelikan was the first company in the world to introduce the differential piston mechanism. This technique makes the shaft inside the fountain pen rotate faster than the tip or filling sleeve, thanks to two differential threads. To this day, this fountain pen is available in many different versions, and although its design and technical details have improved over time, the basic mechanism remains the same.
In 1950 the model 400 was launched. With its green striped body, it has become the global symbol of the Pelikan brand. During the 80s, the series was baptized with the name Souverän, although popularly it has also been called “Stresemann” because it was reminiscent of the secretary of state of the “Weimar Republic”, famous for his striped suits … Souverän with black and blue striped vitola were added to the product range in 1995.
Making the vitola is a painstaking task, as the cotton material – its formula was developed especially for Pelikan – must undergo many manufacturing processes to create this piece of striped material. It is bent and smooth, and its contours are diamond cut. The characteristic double rings on the back of the body and lid are then integrated into the material. This is done with the utmost precision to obtain a virtually seamless transition between materials. The instrument is then polished to a high shine before mounting the clip with a light spring and the famous stylized pelican shape.

Fountain Pen Pelikan Maki-e Renjishi5.800,00€
Kabuki is a traditional Japanese form of theatre. Its origin is said to be from a series of performances by Izumono Okuni in Kitano Tenmangu in 1603 (the beginning of the Edo era). These performances became very popular in Kyoto, and for the last four hundred years have been established as a point of Japanese pride for traditional art. More recently, Kabuki has become popular abroad as well.
The tale of Renjishi was written by Mokuami Kawatake based upon the moral story in which a parent pushes his children down into the bottomless valley with the intention of raising only those who are able to run back up from the valley. This story is regarded as the representative piece of Kabuki dancing, and truly touches the audience’s heart as it is performed by a real parent and son.
The climax of this performance is painted on the Pelikan fountain pen “Renjishi”, where the white-haired parent and the red-haired child dance together wildly as a perfect match.

Fountain Pen Pelikan Maiko in Kyoto Maki-e5.800,00€
Maiko in Kyoto
In 794, the Japanese Emperor Kammu declared the transfer of the capital of Japan to a new city which he called Kyoto. It was the place of an impressive dynasty, where the common people also lead powerful lives. By the end of the 12th century, Kyoto had become the center of commerce and industry of Japan. After approximately seven hundred years of prosperity, Kyoto was reborn as a modern city, when the Meiji Emperor moved the capital to Tokyo. Present-day Kyoto is the sixth largest Japanese city, with a population of 1.5million. With its long history, Kyoto has many temples and shrines, along with other historical architecture, and flourishes as the most popular Japanese tourist attraction.
A Maiko is a young apprentice who trains in arts and customer service manners. In the old days, girls started out as Maikos between the ages of 9 to 12, though the lower age limit has now been raised to after graduation from junior high school. Young and in the apprentice status, a Maiko wears a furisode, a long-sleeved kimono for unmarried women, adjusted at the shoulders and hemmed up. Due to the flashy outfit of lacquered clogs with rounded soles and dangling sash, a Maiko is now said to be the epitome of beauty for young Japanese women.
The Pelikan Maki-e fountain pen “Maiko in Kyoto” depicts a graceful Maiko, standing on a stone pavement in falling cherry blossom petals with the historical five-storied pagoda of Kyoto in the background. It takes up the theme of Maiko, one of the symbols of the ancient capital of Kyoto.
