… and perhaps some other letters as well. I have a small collection but hopefully with representative vintage examples of Pelikan products up through the 400 series

 

I would also like to have representative examples of other brands, some of which were bought by Pelikan, that illustrate the pervasiveness of the design sense across brands in the 30's through the 60's.

 

To this point "Give me an 'M', I've just added two "M"s. a Matador Click 120 with a warranty started on Christmas, 1936:

and a Metropol 375 M with a Kaweco nib after they were purchased by Kaweco:

I realize that there are a zillion brands of German pens from the time period. I have some already but

can any aficionados give me a list of the top 15 - 20 brands I should have to feel I am looking at a fair representation. I am not going for depth in any one brand other than Pelikan. I am also not a collector/dealer in any serious sense of the words. I am just interested in this era and geography of pen manufacturing and design

 

Thanks for any thoughts!
