Pelikan 100

In addition to the changes and variants that are shown in the timeline there are also pens which have a mix of parts. In addition there are a number of other variations including:

  • Clip ending in a diamond shape instead of drop shape (Gdanzk production)
  • Only one cap ring instead of the usual two rings (Gdanzk production)
  • Gold ring without clip (from 1930 a ladies' pen - for better storage in ladies handbags - a gold filled ring instead of a clip was produced)
  • Short cap-top (1935-1938, intended for wearing in a closed shirt pocket, the cap tube is longer than usual, so that the same total length of the cap is reached, while the length of the clip is unchanged.)
  • Chrome clips (especially in the war models we find silver colored clips)
  • 18 carat gold nib (needed for the French market, where only nibs made of 18 carat gold can be referred as gold nibs)

Pelikan 101

The original Pelikan fountain pen got its name Pelikan 100 in the years 1930/31. The models with black cap at this time were named Pelikan 100, fountain pens with white gold filled the name 110, with yellow gold filled overlay 111 and with a 14 carat yellow gold barrel and cap named Pelikan 112.

Models with colored caps were later given the name Pelikan101.

There are several samples which show the production of the red and green 101 fountain pens with a smooth filling grip, green ink window, partly with a CN nib (these are presumably a sale in Germany) and a plastic seal. For this the fountain pen can be dated to a manufacturing time around 1943.

Pelikan 100 Overlay

The fountain pen model shown here is a regular Pelikan 100, which has been refined with a metal overlay. It is not about individual products, this model can be found back and forth in online marketplaces or forums.

These fountain pens are often referred to as Maenner-Pelikan, because they were long held for works by the jeweler Maenner from Stuttgart, but this corresponds to a persistent error. The mark clearly shows who carried out the refinement, it was the company Georg Lauer from Pforzheim.

Later the model 100N was also used as a basis.
