The perfect addition to a morning dress? Here is the Stresemann
Gustav Stresemann (1879- 1929), Foreign Minister of the Weimar Republic, Nobel Prize for Peace in 1926, created a new kind of suit that was still sufficiently formal for official presentations and yet comfortable enough for his work at the office. It was the "morning dress".
People started to call "Stresemann" also the striped fountain pens from Pelikan, that were just then starting their global success. Both the suits and the pens still carry that name to this day.
To officially acknowledge and honor this legend, Pelikan has now named its latest Souverän, with elegant stripes in anthracite, the Stresemann.
The barrel, with the deceptively simple anthracite stripes, is made of cellulose acetate, using a traditional process that's extremely work-intensive.
For the black, finely turned, pieces, high-quality resin was used. The clip and the rings are plated with palladium.
Piston filling system.
18 kt gold nib, completely rhodinized to obtain a silver sheen.
Every single writing instrument is mounted by hand and carefully checked to fulfill the strictest quality criteria.
The collection includes fountain pen, rollerball and ballpen.
The fountain pen comes in a luxury in a beautiful round box, which includes also a complimentary Edelstein ink bottle (onix colour) and a nice ecoleather pencase.
