Limited Editions



The third fountain pen in the series "Achievements of Civilisation" celebrates the art of taming fire. The two previous models were "Evolution of Script" (2007) and "Calculation of Times" (2008). The most important motif is the bowl filled with fire. History tells us that in former times, our ancestors had to wait for lightning to strike before they could ‚catch‘ the flames. They filled skulls with oil in order to preserve the special flames that gave warmth, kept wild beasts at bay and helped to prepare food. Today, fire is just a match away, but to celebrate this achievement of civilisation,the bowl of fire is depicted on the clip, the especially created nib, and the cap. The barrel is made of brass and lacquered several times in a vivid red. Every flame on the barrel is first lasered, then plated with 24 carat gold. Five real Topaz gem-stones make the sparks come alive. The nib is made of 18 carat/750 gold and has an iridium grain at the tip. This Limited Edition is available in the nib sizes F, M, and B.

When burning wood, our forefathers learned to produce embers hotter than 500° Celsius (900° Fahrenheit) that were valuable for their survival. The limited edition "Fire" is dedicated to this ability and is restricted to 500 writing instruments worldwide. It will be launched in the hottest season of the year, in August 2010. The Limited Edition Fire is delivered in an elegant red gift box with a matching booklet that gives a delightful account of the theme and the intricate details of the fountain pen.

Silver Screen - Moving moments on celluloid, captured for eternity

Silver Screen

This exclusive fountain pen, limited to a run of only 420, pays homage to more than 100 years of film history. Celluloid in this new Limited Edition Silver Screen pen represents that used in early motion pictures. In 1887 Hannibal Goodwin developed the roll film utilizing celluloid as a new photographic medium which laid the foundation for the film industry. And, in doing so, he created much more than just a new film imaging material: he made it possible to share moments of joy and laughter, all through the magic of movies. It wasn’t until the advent of celluloid that stars such as Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe or James Dean became world famous. But the beginning wasn’t easy: the films were originally fused with cellulose nitrate and were extremely flammable, almost bursting into flames upon contact with heat. A dangerous characteristic that was finally eliminated with the refinement of film material in the 1950s.

Hollywood’s development into the film center of the western world began in 1911. Shortly after the opening of the first film production company on the West Coast, many studios moved from New York - the original epicenter of the industry. The mild climate, consistent daylight hours and freedom from the regulations and constraints of the New York Motion Picture Patents Company made the Greater Los Angeles community attractive to the film industry. The triumph of the West Coast film industry over that of the East Coast began and heralded a new era of Hollywood movies and stars. From the era of black & white, silent films, through the talkies and on to the special effects of today’s blockbusters, no other industry has evolved as quickly as the Hollywood dream factory. The Walk of Fame is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Hollywood: on Hollywood Boulevard more than 2,000 flagstones with stars commemorate the celebrities of show business from times both current and long past. Like "Modern Times", "Casablanca" or "Gone with the Wind", the Pelikan Silver Screen Limited Edition is a classic icon, made for eternity. A ring of genuine celluloid in the shape of a filmstrip encircles the shaft and four red rubies pinpoint the center of each artfully incorporated palladium-plated star. These elements combine to commemorate the epic moments of Hollywood cinematics. Classic black along with sterling silver enhancements provides a timeless elegance. Strictly limited: the serial number of each Limited Edition Silver Screen fountain pen is engraved and marked on the filling handle.

Calculation of Times

Calculation of Times

Dividing and measuring time as it passes – man has always focussed on this by observing nature. Above all astronomical events such as the movement of the sun and the different phases of the moon are clearly identifiable thanks to their periodical recurrence. From these our forefathers once developed the calculating units for year, month, day and hour. The year with its different seasons is calculated from the orbit of the earth around the sun. The month corresponds with the movement of the moon around the earth and the change in the phases of the moon. The day results from the rotation of the earth around itself and the consequent change of day and night. In the further course of history the sun served to divide the day into hours and minutes.In earliest times knowledge of the sky was necessary for people in agricultural areas essential for survival. Later a fi rmer understanding of time also served to allow people to determine precisely their place in the sequence of generations or their own age. To this day the division of time is essential in marking our everyday life. It helps us to arrange our lives and to structure our working day. The future can only be planned with an understanding of time. With the edition "Calculation of Times" Pelikan is commemorating this important achievement for the history of mankind. Thanks to its time - less elegance and exceptional functionality the superbly crafted Pelikan fountain pen is an exclusive and valuable companion throughout the year.

From the orbit of the moon around the earth, which lasts just under 30 days, man divided the year into twelve months. Lit by the sun, only one half of the moon is turned towards the earth. Based on the position of the moon and sun are and the relation to each other, we see varying amounts of the moons illumination. The four phases of the moon which can be seen, new moon, fi rst quarter moon, full moon and last quarter moon, are embossed on the cap of the Pelikan fountain pen in high relief. In ancient times the Babylonians and Greeks used the position of the sun in the sky and created the fi rst sundials. A vertical shadow stick, whose shadow fell on a clock face, served to measure time – often accurate to within a few minutes. Pelikan has engraved the structure of a sundial with eleven marked hours onto the cap of the fountain pen. The twelfth hour appears as an embossed high relief in the lower part of the clip, which at the same time adopts the symbolic function of the shadow stick. Early developed cultures liked to show the cycle of the year in pictures. Each month is represented by an activity or event adapted to a season. On the Pelikan fountain pen a cycle from the early Middle Ages can be found. Themes such as sowing seeds, harvesting and use of natural products characterize these early calendars or months in pictures. The seasonal vegetation cycle can also be recognised.

Today in many parts of the world the Gregorian calendar is used. Named after Pope Gregory XIII, it was adopted after numerous calendar reforms due in part to its precision and ability to accurately mark time at the end of the 16th century. If you value stylish elegance when writing, you will appreciate the craftsmanship of the high-quality 18-carrot gold nib, which has the sun embossed on it as a relief. The shaft shows calendar themes of everyday life in the Middle Ages. They are incorporated into the black metal shaft coated with ruthenium faithful to detail and filigree and then plated with gold. The edition number, which is engraved on the filling handle, identifies each fountain pen as a unique collectors‘ item. Only 760 pieces of these unrivalled writing instruments have been made by Pelikan. This worldwide edition commemorates the Christian calendar, which began around 760 years after the founding of Rome with the birth of Christ.

Evolution of Script

Evolution of Script

For thousands of years, the accumulated knowledge of humankind, the diverse cultural achievements of different peoples, their legends and their histories could only be transmitted by word of mouth. As a result, much was irretrievably lost. Only with the invention of writing did it become possible for such ancestral lore to be preserved for coming generations in its original form. Pelikan is celebrating this quantum leap in the history of human civilisation with a new limited edition. The first fountain pen of this series bears the name "Evolution of Script". With this, Pelikan is looking back to the origins of writing thousands of years ago: from the cave paintings that were the precursors of writing, via the invention of hieroglyphics in Egypt and Mesopotamian cuneiform, to the development of the Greek alphabet as the point of departure for European scripts. The high-grade resin cap is engraved with cave painting motifs. The barrel, which is gold-plated with lacquer embellishments, displays the other early forms of writing as finely drawn symbols, hand-engraved in masterly fashion. The individual epochs are visually separated by gold-plated rings, in order to symbolise appropriately the line of development.

The incomparable nature of this collectors’ item is very apparent in the 18-carat gold nib, which will be embossed with a different design for each edition. On the clip, the shape of which reflects the overall form of the pen, the same pattern as is embossed on the nib is repeated in high relief, recessed into the clip. Technically too, this masterpiece represents the culture of writing in its purest form. Solid brass components guarantee reliable functionality combined with the highest degree of writing comfort. The artistic realisation of the theme, united with the consummate workmanship exercised on materials of the highest quality, makes "Evolution of Script" a highly desirable object, particularly for collectors. The plunger fountain pen is to be produced in a limited edition restricted to 930 examples worldwide: this recalls the first European adaptation of the Phoenician alphabet, which occurred on Crete in around 930 BC. The edition number, which is engraved on the end of the filling knob, makes each fountain pen unmistakably a one-and-only object.

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon - A tribute to aesthetic appeal and technical skill

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon

King Nebuchadnezzar II had the gardens constructed some 600 years before our calendar for his wife Amytis. She was to find a part of her green home of Persia amidst the desert-like region of Babylon and ancient writings tell us of an impressive new structure which was created and consisted of stepped terraces where exotic trees, shrubs, flowers and herbs grew. The immense garden itself required a sophisticated system to irrigate them with water from the Euphrates.The Hanging Gardens combined an aesthetic natural beauty and new sophisticated technology making this a true masterpiece. Inspired by this, the Pelikan fountain pen combines the utmost precision in manufacturing with traditional craftsmanship and artistic as well as technical skill. This distinctive writing instrument pays tribute and reflects this architectural wonder by incorporating a representation of the front of two steps of the ancient terraced structure. The backdrop reflected on the pen shows how the terraces were supported by columns and arched vaults. The representation of the stepped garden is once again depicted on the cap of this uniquely crafted fountain pen.

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon covered some 120 meters on both sides and the ascending stairway was separated in the form of a stepped slope according to what we learn from the historic accounts of the structure that was destroyed at an early stage. In the fourth century BC, the Babylonian priest Berossos is believed to have first described the gardens, based upon Babylonian documentation. His work has been lost, but chroniclers from the second century BC quoted from it and kept alive the knowledge of the magnificent gardens. This grand form of garden construction art would most likely have given the observer the impression of a hanging park and behind it all was a highly-developed level of technical understanding. It is probable that the walls and columns of the supporting structure were predominantly made of baked bricks and that there were passageways beneath the individual terraces. The substructure of each individual terrace is believed to have been fitted with pipes, natural asphalt, bricks and lead sheeting, so that water could not trickle down. The highest level tier consisted of fertile humus.

Pelikan has set exacting standards for "The Seven Wonders of the World" Edition: superior craftsmanship and the artistic rendering of the Edition‘s respective subject matter are both prerequisites. "The Hanging Gardens of Babylon" Limited Edition fountain pen thus combines German precision craftsmanship with elements of a long-lost age. Each pen detail has been meticulously designed and crafted with to reflect and pay tribute to this magnificent achievement. The new Hanging Gardens writing instruments are intricate in detail, with a gold plated cap which artistically depicts four stepped terraces. The dark green barrel is refined with lacquer and polished to a high gloss. Edged by gold plated rings, it flows into the superbly crafted front part of the fountain pen. The hand-crafted 18 carat gold nib is decorated with an individually embossed stylized rendering of the terraces. The Hanging Gardens series writing instruments offer a new elegance, uniting functionality, durability and beauty. The new Limited Edition has its own dedicated serial number engraved into the filling handle identifing each fountain pen as a unique masterpiece. Pelikan has crafted just 410 of these precious writing instruments, a number chosen to represent the work of the Babylon priest Berossos from the 4th century BC, the first scribe known to us who has ensured through his writings that this magnificent terraced garden would be remembered and not disappear into oblivion.

The Lighthouse of Alexandria - The Legend Lives on

The Lighthouse of Alexandria

The beam emitted by the Lighthouse of Alexandria was visible for up to 31 miles (50 kilometers): for mariners at the time this was an important navigational aid along the Egyptian coast and at the entry to the harbor of metropolitan Alexandria. The tower was built around 300 BC by Sostratos of Knidos and commissioned by, Ptolemy, the ruler at the time. The building work took around 20 years to complete. The lighthouse, which was known as "The Pharos", named after the small island of Pharos just a few miles from the Nile delta, was made up of three stages with a total height of around 440 feet (134 meters). It stood on a granite platform decorated with statues of deities. The lower square section, which was about 330 feet (100 meters) in height, formed a pedestal for the about 100 feet (30 meters) octagonal circus on top of which rested the light source and the beacon - a giant convex mirror of finely ground and polished bronze that focused the light. In the daytime, the mirror reflected sunlight; by night, a fire of oil, resin or pitch served as the light source. On top of the tower stood an eight meter statue of a deity, although it is unclear to the present day whether it represented Poseidon or Zeus as both were revered as patrons.

Pelikan has set exacting standards for "The Seven Wonders of the World" Edition: our prerequisites are both perfect craftsmanship and the artistic rendering of the Edition‘s subject matter. "The Lighthouse of Alexandria" Limited Edition fountain pen thus combines German precision craftsmanship with elements of a long-lost age. Each detail was designed and crafted with devotion: the lighthouse motif artistically engraved on the front of the fountain pen, and the dark blue varnished shaft, edged in gold plate. The cap with its four stylized lighthouse windows and the gold plated clip are intricately worked. Anyone who places emphasis on exceptional writing functionality and durability will appreciate the unique hand-crafted gold nib which is decorated with an individually embossed, stylized lighthouse. The Edition number, which is engraved on the filling handle, identifies each pen as a unique collectors‘ item. Pelikan has crafted just 440 of these precious writing implements to commemorate the enormous scale of the tower, which stood at 440 feet or about 134 meters and is still the tallest lighthouse of all time.

The Temple of Artemis - A Work of Art, Built By Human Hands

The Temple of Artemis

This temple, intended to honor the goddess Artemis, was completed 440 years before Christ. It took roughly 120 years to complete its construction. One of the largest challenges for the constructors at that time was dealing with the swampy surroundings of the area, which they ultimately secured with charcoal. The foundation made of solid rock builds the base of the temple, which was 51 meters wide and 105 meters long. Ceilings and trusses were made of cedar wood. The folding doors leading to the Cella the innermost and holiest area of the temple - were garnished with cypress wood and gold.Of the 127 pillars, 36 were aligned with larger than life Frisians upon which the acts of the Greek gods and heroes were illustrated.

Wild, independent and of sublime strength and beauty - this is the showcased imagery of Artemis, the Greek mythological goddess of fruitfulness, hunting and war. As the daughter of Zeus and the twin sister of Apollo, she is considered one of the twelve great Olympic deities. Artemis was an indomitable goddess who not only gave life, but took it as well. In her honor and in order to appease her, the Artemis Temple in Ephesus was sanctioned and begun by Croesus of Lydia.

The limited edition "Temple of Artemis" fountain pen is a unique creation from the master of pen making. It is made most impressive by the perfect workmanship and the differentiated design of details. In its total optic quality, the fountain pen reminds one of the breathtaking marble pillars of the Artemis Temple and is modeled after the glamorous column relief. The fountain pen forepart constructed by artistic workmanship is processed with high quality materials and refined with palladium. The pen is engraved with the shining goddess Artemis such as she once proudly stood over her temple visitors.

The complexly gold-plated head of the covering cap crowns an ionic chapter, which, together with the ornament rings, reflects the illustrious first impression of the temple pillars. At the tip of this masterpiece is the18-karat gold pen engraved per hand. With the edition number, which is placed in the form of an engraving on the filling handle, every copy is marked as a distinctive unique specimen. Worldwide, there are only 440 copies of this high quality Pelikan writing instrument available. Pelikan includes this edition number in order to act as a reminder of the year 440 BC in which the temple - after 120 years of construction - was completed.

Blue Planet - Infinite perfection

Blue Planet

The earth hangs in space like a shining blue jewel. Oceans give off a deep blue shimmer, and the continents appear a gentle greenish brown. A very special tribute is now being paid to this spectacular view of our planet by the "Blue Planet" limited edition from Pelikan.

Life on earth has been unfolding in all its unimaginable variety for some 540 million years. The fountain pen recalls this figure, being produced in a limited edition of 540 instruments.

This new star that has appeared in the universe of writing instruments emanates an almost ethereal elegance and a quality of the utmost preciousness. The cobalt blue front section is adorned with a gold-plated sterling silver ring. Into the sleeve, which is also of sterling silver, a detailed depiction of the earth with its oceans of shining blue is engraved with the highest artistry, standing out against the anthracite black background of outer space. The filigree pattern of clouds above the earth is embedded into the protective layer of clear varnish, and is applied with the finest airbrush technique. The overall impression is harmoniously complemented by guilloched lines of longitude and latitude on the filling knob and the tip of the cap. And of course the 18-carat gold nib, written in by hand and adorned with elegantly curving rhodium embellishments, shines too.

Colossus of Rhodes - A gift to eternity

Colossus of Rhodes

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.

The edition number engraved on the filler knob end transforms each pro-duct into an unmistakably unique item. Pelikan has manufactured just 408 of these incomparable writing instruments.

This worldwide limited edition figure is thus a reminder of the founding of the town of Rhodes that took place in 408 B.C. when the three-town states of the island united: Ialysos in the north, Lindos in the east and Kamiros in the west - all three having once been ruled by the so-named grandchildren of Helios, the sun God. They founded the island‘s capital on the northern tip and called it Rhodes, thus also giving this sun-drenched and fertile island its name.

Myth of the Moon Goddess

Myth of the Moon Goddess

According to "Li-Ji", an ancient Chinese book recording customs and ceremonies, the Chinese Emperor is to offer sacrifices to the sun in spring and the moon in autumn. While the sun is worshipped during the day, the rite for the moon is to be held in the evening. Chinese ancestors set the 15th day of the 8th lunar month as the day of the lunar rite, a day when half of autumn has passed and thus called "Mid-Autumn". The night on August 15 of the lunar calendar is also called "Night of the Moon", as the moon is brighter than usual. In Song Dynasty (starting from 420 A.D.), the day was officially declared for lunar worship and moon watching and named Mid-Autumn Festival. Today, family reunion and celebration is a rule for all Chinese on this day that has become one of the three most important Chinese festivals. Pelikan is pleased to combine the precision of the German craftsmanship with the ancient Chinese legend and, by modifying M1000, presents proudly to worldwide pen lovers the golden limited edition "Myth of the Moon Goddess".

"Charlotte" and "Marguerite"

'Charlotte' and 'Marguerite'

The theme chosen for this Classic Pelikan Pen series is one of the greatest writers ever: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832). The guilloche engravings of the two pens, "Charlotte" and "Marguerite" were inspired by his works, "The Surrows of Werther" and "Faust". The sinuous fluidity of the "Charlotte" cascade pattern represents "The Surrows of Werther", a novel describing the first romantic love, and associated with youth, emotion and flow of passion. The density and complexity of the "Marguerite" mosaique design, has some uniformity, it is pleasing and relaxing to the eye, but at the same time it is powerful. And since the mosaique pattern is completely hand crafted, every Marguerite in the series of 500 pens is a little different from the rest making each one unique. Limited edition "Charlotte" is a large Sovereign M 800 and "Marguerite" resembles the M 1000 series. Both Cap and shaft on each pen is made in 925-sterling-silver.
