Pelikan Limited Edition Caellum
Our solar system. A spectacle of evolutionary power which has lasted for millions of years and is the home of our existence. This unique creation in the middle of the infinity of the universe now comes into the world as a new creation – in the form of the limited edition “Caelum” (in English, “the heavens”). Derived from the average 58 million kilometre distance at which Mercury, the first planet of our solar system, orbits the sun, the limited edition “Caelum” is limited worldwide to 580 writing instruments.
This Pelikan Limited Edition Caellum and the union of the finest components and materials, masterfully combined using traditional artisan skills, make the limited edition “Caelum” a new masterpiece from Pelikan. The Pelikan Limited Edition Caellum is a spectacular creation full of astonishingly staged details of our solar system.
The masterfully hand engraved 18 carat gold nib, decorated throughout with rhodium, is just the tip of this impressive masterpiece. The top of the cap symbolises the sun shining over everything, its brilliant golden rays engraved into the cap of the “Caelum” towards which the nine planets of the solar system stream. At the foot of the cap, likewise in the form of the finest engraving, begins the fascinating representation of all nine planets, from Mercury to Pluto, which is continued passionately on the barrel. On the back, along the entire length of the cap and barrel is a gilded band, with the names of the sun and all the planets, crossed by the finely symbolised planetary orbits.
Barrel, cap and grip are framed in fine sterling silver and painted cosmos blue such that many distant stars and planets from other galaxies can be seen as tiny points of light.
