Last year, Pelikan made a pen with elegant grey stripes, large size (Souverän 800), naming it Stresemann, honouring Gustav Stresemann (1879-1929), Foreign Minister of the Weimar Republic, Nobel Prize for Peace in 1926,
This year, Pelikan repeats its large success with a smaller pen, based on the Souverän 400 size: the 405 Stresemann.
The barrel, with the deceptively simple anthracite stripes, is made of cellulose acetate, using a traditional process that's extremely work-intensive.
Piston filling system.
The fountain pen comes in a luxury round box, which includes also a complimentary Edelstein ink bottle and a nice ecoleather pencase.
Available from half of November
