Witnesses to a long forgotten culture
With the "Pyramids of Giza" fountain pen, Pelikan pays tribute to a historic
masterwork which remains unique in its dimensions. Between 2950 and 2470
B.C. monuments were created, in the form of the tombs of the Egyptian
pharaohs Cheops, Chepren and Mycerinus, which have survived throughout the
aeons to the present day.
These burial places of the pharaohs and kings are the source of inspiration for a work of art which will delight lovers of writing as much as fans of ancient Egypt with its masterly working of quality materials.
And it's the numerous painstaking details which make these Pelikan fountain pens really special - the shape of the cap head pays tribute to the crown of the Pharaoh Cheops. The special execution of the Pelikan logo in high relief also demonstrates that a fascinating gem among fountain pens has been created.
Through the edition number, wich is engraved on the fountain pen, each example is labelled as being unmistakably unique. The worldwide edition is 445 pieces - a homage to the Greek historian Heredot who collected information regarding the pyramids in the year 445 B.C.
The "Pyramids of Giza" fountain pen has been released in the year 2004 and is limited to 445 pieces.
