With engraved on the cap "Otto Kern". We are very proud to offer this museum worthy Pelican fountain pen, the original 1931 Pelican 111 in astonishing 585 solid gold barrel, with BHR (Brown Hard Rubber) turning knob and shaft, and brown cap with gold trims. Introduced in March 1931 for export only, this pen is one of the legends in the fountain pen world. Limited edition with solid gold barrel is extremely rare, as this pen was basically the second edition or successor of the first Pelikan 100 which was launched in 1929 and revolutionized the fountain pen market. By this time this differential piston system we know and still use today has been improved and refined, and the rest is history.
If these pens were made today that would certainly be marketed as a limited edition of 1 of 1, as virtually no two pens are identical. The patterns on these early 111s are so different on each pen that they are basically a different pen on each. This is why often some pens from the same model are much more beautiful than others, as simply the pattern belongs to the form, it has the right balance of colors and many other factors, such as this pen here. This is a beautiful example of Pelikan 111.
