Pelikan Souveran 600 Art Collection Glauco Cambon Fountain Pen
Pelikan Souveran 600 Art Collection Glauco Cambon Fountain Pen. A piece of Pelikan’s history finds its way into the hearts and hands of collectors and enthusiasts of Pelikan writing instruments through the Art Collection. This unique Special Edition pays homage to the poster art of great painters and graphic designers.
Through the newly interpreted motif on the fountain pen, a piece of Pelikan’s history becomes a work of art itself. The new Special Edition, named after the renowned poster artist Glauco Cambon, brings the art collection to life.
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. | Pelikan | Pelikan Souveran
The beginnings of the 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.
Piston filling mechanism and ink feed are the key to the fame of the Pelikan fountain pens. Self filling fountain pens, using pressure and lever mechanisms, and so-called safety fountain pens, that were filled by using an eyedropper, ruled the market after World War I.
In the 1980s, writing with a fountain pen experienced a revival. Not necessarily in everyday use, however, it was used again for personal letters, for signatures, and as a status symbol. In 1979, with the “Signum”, a fountain pen specially made for adults was introduced for the first time again.
Yet, only in 1982, when the Souverän M400 was launched, which was a renewal of the fountain pen 400, managed to live up to its previous successes. Outwardly the fountain pens were identical, only the ink feed and the mechanism differed slightly.
