Pelikan's story originates in 1838 when chemist Carl Hornemann founded a small company to produce ink and water colours. Based out of Hanover, Germany, the Pelikan logo itself is borne from his family's coat of arms and is now synonymous with one of the oldest brands in Germany.
Pelikan are famed for their 1929 invention of the differentiated piston filling mechanism. In the following decades, the company established its international reputation for manufacturing high-quality, plush fountain pens.
The Pelikan Classic D200 Pencil is made of a high-quality resin with gold plated trim on the clip and rings. It features a push button to deploy the writing point with an eraser underneath the cap. It takes 0.7mm leads and comes packaged in a giftbox with Pelikan's 3-year guarantee.
