The Pelikan factory produced ink, paints, glue, type writer ribbons, stencils, stamp pads and carbon paper. In 1929 the first fountain pen was launched: the "Pelikan 100", a piston filler designed by the engineers Theodor Kovacs and Carola Bako. In the 1930s the 100 series were remodelled and the letter N (for "new") was added. During WWII gold was hard to obtain and nibs of chromium/nickel-plated steel were produced, so-called CN nibs.
In the 1950s the clip got redesigned in the shape of a pelican beak. After Wagners retirement his son-in-law and successor Fritz Beindorff led the company to become one of the worlds leading makers of fountain pens. In the 1970s Pelikan Schoolpens, together with those of Geha were the most popular pens in Germany.
