Hi All,

 

I'm looking for information on vintage Pelikan pen boxes, specifically which box(es) is correct/original for which model from the 1930s to the 1960s.  Photos would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Rob

This is a tall order, since there were literally hundreds of boxes. 

 

But Rob also gives us the opportunity to create a rather nice and a unique archive of boxes.

 

If people can start posting boxes, I would be happy to identify those that need to be identified and toward the end would be happy to fill in any holes we have left.  We won't be complete, but we can try. If this takes off I may try to bring in some of the European guys as well

Tony, this is a guess, but it looks like a fancy presentation case for a 400, but that is just a guess.

At the weekend I'll try to put up some of my stuff including 1938 catalogue pages.

That's quite amazing for a guess because I think you're spot on. It came with a knicky from the same era, and the 100n was just for decoration. You truly are the master in this game.

And of course christof with his museum grade stuff and pro photography. Just fantastic.
