Besides his impressive political career, the foreign minister of the German Weimarer Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1879-1929), also became famous for the creation of a new kind of suit. The classical Stresemann suit consists of black/grey striped trousers and a single row jacket in black or anthracite. The Souverän® of Pelikan is popularly known as „Stresemann“, that is why Pelikan named the Souverän® black-anthracite after Gustav Stresemann.
After a successful market introduction of Souverän® series 405 and 805 Stresemann, Pelikan follows this success by launching the most exclusive model of the Souverän® line, the M1005 Stresemann. The elegant piston fountain pen is equipped with a 18 carat gold nib which is completely covered by rhodium to obtain a silver sheen. The barrel with the deceptively simple anthracite stripes is made of cellulose acetate, using a traditional process that is extremely work-intensive but gives this series its elegant character.
The Souverän® M1005 Stresemann is delivered inside an attractive gift box (G15). As a matching colour contrast we are recommending the beautiful Edelstein® Ink Flacon with Mandarin ink. You may find the collection online here.
