805 Stresemann

(3 products)

The foreign minister of the Weimar Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1879 to 1929), was honored with the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1926. Together with his French colleague Aristide Briand, he was acknowledged for his reconciliatory work between the nations after World War I.

Besides his impressive political career, Stresemann also became famous for the creation of a new kind of suit that was still sufficiently formal for official presentations and yet comfortable enough for his work at the office. Stresemann liked to wear suits with thin stripes, and, as life sometimes goes, a legend developed and, suddenly, people called the striped fountain pens from Pelikan that were just then starting their global tour of success around the world, by the name of *Streseman*. Both the suits and the pens still carry that name to this day. To officially acknowledge and honor this legend, Pelikan has now named the latest addition to their 800 Souveran collection, with elegant stripes in anthracite, the *Stresemann*.

The barrel with the deceptively simple anthracite stripes is made of cellulose acetate, using a traditional process that is extremely labor intensive. For the black, finely turned pieces, high- quality resin was used. The clip and the rings are plated with palladium. The nib is made of 18 carat gold available in M, F, XF and B widths. Piston fill.
