Pelikan Originals Of Their Time 1931 Gold Limited Edition Fountain Pen


Out of stock


Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Pelikan Originals Of Their Time 1931 Gold Limited Edition Fountain Pen, which comes with its Pelikan presentation box (including outer) and information booklet. The pen has been carefully used and is presented in overall lovely condition. Only 5000 were produced and this is number 3488. The pen has just returned from being serviced by Pelikan and the piston filling mechanism was replaced at the same time.



This limited edition, launched in 1997, is the first in the Originals Of Their Time series. These pens pay tribute to the Pelikan 100 series pens of the 1930’s, which were known for incorporating new colours and gilded embellishments.



This pen, known as the 1931 Gold, features a black celluloid cap and barrel, with the section and piston knob being crafted from black rubber. The barrel sleeve is produced from 18k gold (hallmarked) and features both a striped and guilloche pattern. The original 4 chick logo (used until 1938) can be found atop the pen.



The pen is fitted with an 18k broad (the original owner had it swapped from a medium) and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.



The important details are as follows…



– 18k Broad Nib


– Pelikan Piston Filling System 


– Pelikan Presentation Box



With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
