The Lighthouse of Alexandria - 2007

Pelikan's Limited Edition, "The Lighthouse of Alexandria", is a further highlight in the "Seven Wonders of the World" series of fine writing instruments. This time, tribute is paid to the highest of the seven wonders - the Pharos of Alexandria. This majestic ancient lighthouse stood on the island of Pharos close to the coast of Egypt for more than a thousand years; built in 300 B.C., it was the first beacon fire in history.

The exclusive fountain pen from Pelikan recalls this technical and artistic marvel with an equivalent degree of precision and craftsmanship. Even the presentation is unique: the pen is impressively displayed under a glass dome designed to be reminiscent of the original. The dark blue lacquered barrel enclosed between gold-plated edges and the gold-plated clip emphasise the preciousness of the pen. The front section is adorned with an engraved image of the ancient building.

Further features of "The Lighthouse of Alexandria" are shapes representing four stylised lighthouse windows on the dark blue cap. Collectors who value the highest degree of functionality and consistency in writing will be particularly thrilled by the 18-carat gold nib, individually embossed with a blazing beacon fire. Each fountain pen of the Limited Edition "The Lighthouse of Alexandria" is rendered unique by the engraved serial number on the filler knob.

About This Edition:

The series was limited to 440 pens, an allusion to the height of this unparalleled structure: the Pharos of Alexandria was 440 ft. high and took over 20 years to build. It was considered an architectural masterpiece and right down to today remains the tallest beacon ever built in the world.

The "Lighthouse of Alexandria" fountain pen was limited to 440 pieces.
