Pelikan M400 in Brown Tortoiseshell from early 1980s - the stripes.jpeg


This picture shows the variation in the colours of the cellulose-acetate stripes on my brown tortoise.
The ones around the other side of the pen are almost uniformly dark brown.

This variability makes each brown tortoise unique and, in my mind at least, the irregularities in the colours of the stripes add to their beauty.

Important Correction:

This pen is not from the early 1980s, it is from the early 1990s!


For details, see the explanation in my comment under my photo of its nib.
