pen: Made in Germany in
1935-1938, Pelikan 100N/101N fountain pen, brown and tortoise and
cap. The barrel band is medium brown and green coloured tortoise. Please
consider that this model has a brown filling knob which was used only
for a small range of production. The cap has the characteristic double
ring. A lovely pen – very hard to find!Background and history: In 1937 a new model went into production, known
as the 100N (N for 'new'). Although similar in shape to the 100, this
was a bigger pen, both in length and diameter, which consequently had a
larger ink capacity. The other main visible difference was the filling
knob, which was more conical and now smooth as opposed to the ribbed
knob on the 100. Versions of this model can also be found with a shorter
cap top. These were intended as export models to countries where, it is
reported, fashion dictated that a flap on the top of a jacket pocket
would fold better if the pen did not stick up too far.The cap rings came in two versions - a double ring or a broad, fluted
decorative ring with matching fluted clip. Because of the war and
subsequent gold shortage, gold nibs were not allowed, so pens made
during wartime had palladium nibs. Later in 1939 palladium was also
forofferden and nibs were made of chrome, nickle and steel.In 1942 the pen was further improved by replacing the piston cork with
one made of a synthetic material normally used as a sealing agent to
prevent home water leaks. Towards the end of its life the filling system
was further improved with a new piston and piston rod.Over the span of its production, the 100N came in a wide range of
finishes - black caps with black, green and grey marbled barrels and
14ct gold bands, tortoise shell and lizard finishes known as the 101N,
mother-of-pearl, all white rolled gold or 14ct pens and, of course, the
famous Toledo. The production of the 100N series ended in 1954.
