New limited edition Pelikan Herzstück 1929 fountain pen commemorates the 90th anniversary of the introduction of Pelikan’s famous differential piston-fill system.
The semi-transparent demonstrator design includes the transparent window, the curved Pelikan beak-like clip, the cap with the historic Pelikan logo, and the form and detail of the grip are reminiscent of the revolutionary Pelikan fountain pen.
Herzstück translates to
The 18k solid gold Medium nib is specially inscribed for this limited edition, and the smartly designed presentation box includes a bottle of Pelikan Royal Blue ink with special commemorative labeling. The black high-grade resin – the so-called platinum of plastics – is polished with natural diamonds and exerts a self-polishing effect with use. Extreme gloss and the utmost surface hardness characterize the material.
In honor of the original, the limited edition is based on the historic patent number, for which the last three figures were 462.
The complete patent number is engraved on the gilded piston, while the individual edition number out of the total of 462 pieces worldwide adorns the grip ring of each pen. It is proof of the uniqueness of these rare beauties.
The high-quality black presentation box boasts a special trick: When it’s opened, the platform is elevated by two bands that form part of a special lifting process. The exquisite “Herzstück 1929” is thus presented from the very best angle. Along with it is a flask of Royal Blue Pelikan Ink 4001® bearing a special label. The mechanical functioning is representative of the carefully considered presentation.
