585 14CT Solid Gold Fountain Pen 1930s. This is the ORIGINAL model 111 not the 1931 Originals of Their Time Re-Issue. Beyond rare to find so clean and in its original Blue Leather Hard Case with Silk lining interior.Has an amazing FULL flex nib. Exceptional writer full of creativity and personality. A simple JOY to use.
This wonderful pen is both as beautiful to look at and hold as it is fabulous to write with. A true collectors item that can be used and enjoyed daily. The piston has just been serviced with NEW cork and works as NEW. Fills to the MAX every time. The pen is made of 14C solid Yellow Gold, Celluloid and BHR (Black Hard Rubber).
The 14C Barrel is in AMAZING condition with no cracks, repairs, dents or deep scratches etc. Very rare to find at all let alone so clean. The superb Inner see through Green Barrel is also free of any crack, splits or crazing etc. The Cap is made of Jet Black High Gloss Celluloid as is the ultra rare Cap Top with Early Pelikan Logo pre 1937.
Very rare to find in Celluloid most of these early Cap tops are BHR. The Piston Housing and Tail End are BHR (Black Hard Rubber) as is the Feed.
The Clip and cap Ring Bands are Yellow Gold plated and also MINT. Ultra rare to find such perfect original Clip and Rings with zero brassing or plate loss etc.
To be so clean this pen has been used very little in its life. ALWAYS looked after and NEVER abused. Mostly living in its original box. The original and RARE early Blue Leather HARD case with Silk lining is fantastic to have still.Of course the real treasure with this pen has to be that 14 KARAT original nib. PERFECT condition nib with ZERO damage or Repairs etc. I have owned or serviced 100s of these 30s Pelikan over the years and not all Pelikan Nibs are made equal.
This nib is Top Draw. As good as Pelikan Flex nibs get. It is a RARE Fine Oblique O nib. Such wonderfully sculpted Iridium nib tips are very rare.
Most are Broad or Double Broad. Even Triple Broad when Oblique. Oblique simply means the nib tips are ever so slightly angled for people who hold their pen at a slight angle when writing (Right handed).I hold a pen normally and yet ALWAYS find Oblique nibs a JOY to write with once you find the sweet spot. However because this Oblique Nib is so fine it is hardly even noticeable truth be told. It writes with a Fine to Medium line down stroke that has Fine to Extra Fine line side stroke at normal pressure. Very elegant lines perfect for everyday use. Really smooth writer that has zero paper scratch.
However this Superstar Masterpiece nib really comes alive the moment you exercise its amazing flexibility. On the down stroke when varying levels of pressure is applied this nib is so creative it can write ALL line widths.
This is a thoroughbred Nib for the TRUE writing Connoisseur. I write with little elegance and a heavy hand so can not give true justice to such a sublime nib. Once in the hand of an experienced Flex writer this nib will write so beautifully it simply leaves ALL competition in its dust.
Make no mistake Pelikan nibs of ANY era rarely get this creative. C ome s ready to write just add your favorite colour bottled ink... Perfect as a gift or treat yourself to a wonderful collectible fountain pen that can be used and enjoyed daily..
