In 1832, Carl Hornemann founded a small color artist for artists and inks in Hannover, Germany. From here begins Pelikan's story even though as a foundation date we usually refer to April 28, 1838, the day of release of the first printed price list. Chemical Guenther Wagner becomes head of the company.

He bought it in 1871 and in 1878 he recorded the logo representing a pelican drawn from the coat of arms of his family. It is one of the first registered trademarks in Germany. To expand its business to Austria, which at that time controlled part of northern Italy, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Croatia, built a factory first in Eger and then in Vienna. Production and the market are widening. The company employs 39 new employees including Fritz Beindorff. The young man starts selling Pelikan in Austria, Italy and Russia. The company moves to the new construction on the Podbielskistrasse in an area of ​​13,000 m² of office space and space for production. This modern building has now become a protected historic monument of the city of Hanover. Annual sales reach two million marks in recent years. In 1929 The birth year of the Pelikan fountain pens. Famous and recognizable green stems have an innovative ink flow system and a transparent window to control ink levels. The innovative differential piston mechanism in Pelikan styling is a true revolution for the era.

After the austere post-war period in Germany, the economic boom breaks. During this period, Pelikan produces the fountain pen model 400 from the black and green stripe. This model has become the most famous of its category. Even today Pelikan is one of the most important pencil marks in the world.

    A true classic

    In the year 1929 Pelikan was the first company in the world to introduce the differentiated piston mechanism. This technique causes the spindle inside the fountain pen to turn quicker than the end piece of the barrel, with the help of two different threads. To this date, this fountain pen exists in many different variations, and though it has been developed in design and technical details over time, the basic mechanism remains the same.

    In 1950, the model 400 was launched. With its green-striped sleeve, it has become a world-wide symbol for the brand of Pelikan. In the eighties, the series was baptized Souverän, though popular lore has taken to calling it by its nickname Stresemann, because the state secretary of the “Weimarer Republik” was famous for his striped suits...

    The production of the sleeve is work-intensive. Adhering to a special Pelikan recipe, the raw material cotton is processed through many different steps until it is shaped into a striped sheet. It is then formed into the right shape, cut and sanded with a diamond. Next, the characteristic double clips at the back of the barrel and on the cap are integrated into the material. This is done with the highest precision in order to obtain a virtually seamless transition between the materials. The writing instrument is then polished to a high sheen before the slightly springy clip with its famous, stylized Pelikan is mounted.

    If you love classics, you own a Souverän writing instrument.

    Pelikan's models are dividon in: 1000 - 800 - 600 - 400 - 300


    The art of working with Damascus steel goes back thousands of years. It means that steel or iron objects are decorated by engraving a pattern into the surface. Next, a thin sheet of gold will be placed over the pattern and will be embossed deep into the material with the help of a little hammer. In order to show the newly filled pattern, the object will then be heated to approximately 800°C. By doing so, the steel surfaces will oxidize and turn black, while the gold starts to shine. This technique traveled with the Arabs into Spain and has been perfected throughout the centuries, particularly in the famous Spanish town Toledo.

    In the year 1931 Pelikan adopted this technique for the Toledo model with so much success that the design has remained virtually unchanged throughout the years. Today the decorative sleeve is made of one piece in Sterling Silver. It is treated carefully in various different steps until the motive is covered with a layer of gold (or palladium to obtain a silver surface). Every Toledo fountain pen is a unique piece made in Germany. This is because the tiny engravings in the motif are made by hand, making each Pelikan feather come alive. Due to the high amount of work, a maximum of 200 pieces are able to be created per month. The cap and front piece as well as the end piece are made of black high-quality resin.

    If you own a Toledo fountain pen, you own a piece of art and a small piece of history.
