I figured that you might like this (see below).

Thank you for sharing this extensive history of the Elysee brand! I discovered them too late (very shortly after the company folded) but greatly enjoy the few pens I've managed to obtain.

It was my pleasure -- it was nice to be able to share information about the pens that I love and enjoy so much.

Being able to buy my first Elysee pen in 1998 was delightful. After years of only being able to look (poor graduate students have no money with which to buy expensive pens) at the lovely Elysee pens in the display cases of various pen stores, being able to own and use my first Elysee pen was amazing; the pen (En Vogue Lapis, closed-top pen clip with double middle rings) still takes my breath away and, like all my pens, it is without wear and scratches. It took me almost nineteen years to collect all the lovely Elysee pens that I had dreamed of owning: eBay was very helpful with that, and I still enjoy checking the listings for NOS Elysee pens.

Since there are NOS Elysee pens listed on eBay from time to time, you should keep an eye on the listings for pens that you are interested in buying. My one caution in regard to eBay is that some sellers list Elysee pens, especially used, scratched pens, at outrageous prices. So, be patient and wait for the listings for pens in great condition at appropriate prices; the search is exciting, especially when it results in the purchase of a lovely Elysee pen.

I used to use them in school and then they were cleaned and put away when I went to university. I haven't looked for them since.

They should still be around somewhere.

 

My first was a Parker Vector followed by the Elysée. I also used Cross for a while.

Here's a question for all of you Elysee experts!
How would you rate the Fine and Medium points they make? Do they correspond to other European brands (such as Waterman)- meaning the Fine is more like a Fine-to-Medium?
Many thanks!

Yes, but as always this also depends on the ink’s wetness, the paper, and the pressure of writing.

Here it is!
With Pelikan 4001 Blue, on Clairefontaine paper, this Medium is a good "Medium-Fine," as hoped for!

Wow!!! Thank you for the share! I was searching for some comprehensive documentation about Élysée products and the best I could find was the information in this thread. That analysis seems to be a gift sent by the heavens.

Thanks again!!

I had one just like this one, and I kick myself for selling it.

 

A great pen and such a unique nib.

I have a couple Parthenon ballpoints, a bicolor and a red lacquer. They are well made, and use Parker style refills. I believe I bought them in the late 1990s.
