Pelikan has some incredibly priced everyday pens. Remember that ballpoints (first invented in Hungary under the trade name Biro) are a fairly recent invention. We only stock a few Pelikan pens, but can order any current production Pelikan pen for you.

Evolution of Script

Evolution of Script Limited Edition

Evolution of script

The cap of the pen is engraved with cave painting motifs. The barrel, which is gold-plated with lacquer embellishments, displays 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 is embossed with a unique design for this edition. On the clip, the shape of which reflects the overall form of the pen, the same pattern as is embossed 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.
