Pelikan M600 Souveran Art Collection Fountain Pen - Glauco Cambon Special Edition
Great painters and graphic designers of the avant-garde, such as El Lissitzky or Kurt Schwitters, created product advertisements using Pelikan colours. The resulting treasure of impressive posters and posters from the years 1900 to 1950 represents a remarkable piece of Pelikan’s history. Fritz Beindorff, the former owner of the Pelikan company and a passionate art collector, was one of the first industrialists to seek collaboration with artists. In 1898/99, the art patron initiated the first poster competition.
Glauco Cambon submitted his design for the Pelikan poster competition "Competition for Art Painters and Architects“ in 1909. Cambon’s design was awarded a prize and purchased by Pelikan.
The new special edition, named after the renowned poster artist Glauco Cambon, brings the art collection to life. 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, thus creating genuine passion stemming from a profound understanding of the brand’s artistic heritage. A small detail from a grand artwork: The colorful reflections in the water caused by the movement of pelicans inspired the flowing, dynamic wave design for the Special Edition Souverän M600 Pelikan Art Collection Glauco Cambon.
The Aurora process:
Initially, a brass tube is worked on, engraved, and guilloched, creating fine grooves that achieve the unique light-reflecting hologram effect. Ten layers of clear lacquer give the writing instrument a smooth, flat surface, which is then printed with the colored image motif after polishing. The final multiple polishing of the barrel brings out the iconic pen’s high gloss shine.
The cap, front section, and piston grip of this elegant piston-filling fountain pen are made of high-quality resin with self-polishing properties. The 14-karat two-tone gold nib glides smoothly and expressively across the paper. The golden decorative elements,
as well as the characteristic double rings and the Pelikan-typical beak-shaped clip, are adorned with 24-karat gold.
