Description

Foreign Minister of the Weimar Republic, Gustav Stresemann (1879-1929), was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1926: together with his French colleague Aristide Briand, he was recognized for his work of reconciliation between nations after the First World War.

His policy of reconciliation with the Entente was important, which led to the stipulation of the Locarno Pact (1925) and German entry into the League of Nations (1926).

Alongside his extraordinary political career, Stresemann also became famous for creating a new type of suit which, while being suitably formal for his official presentations, was also comfortable for carrying out his work in the office. Stresemann liked to wear finely striped clothes, and, as sometimes happens in life, a legend was born………suddenly people called Stresemann the striped fountain pens from Pelikan, which at the time were starting to make their rounds in the world. world and to be successful.

Even today, both clothes and pens bear his name.
To officially recognize and honor this legend, Pelikan has today christened the latest addition to the standard collection – the Souverän with its elegant anthracite stripes – with the name Stresemann.

The barrel, with its seemingly simple anthracite stripes, is made of acetyl cellulose, obtained through a traditional process that requires extremely labor intensive.
For the black, finely turned pieces, a high-quality resin was used.
The clip and rings are finished in palladium.
The nib is made with 18k gold, fully rhodium plated to achieve a silver shine.
Every single writing instrument is hand-assembled and carefully inspected to meet the most stringent testing criteria.
