Pelikan M481 Clear Demonstrator Fountain Pen Pre-M200 model Rare (M Steel Nib)
Pelikan M481 Clear Demonstrator Fountain Pen Pre-M200 Model (Rare) – M Steel Nib. This is a Pelikan M481 Clear Demonstrator fountain pen likely issued in the 1980s before Pelikan introduced the M200 models. The cap band comes with the distinguished single cap band different from the double cap bands that comes with its cousin M200. Marked on the cap band shows “Pelikan” and “West Germany”, which indicates that this pen is made before unification of Germany. Being the precursor of M200, M481 has the same dimensions as a M200. M481 is deemed as an export model (to Japan or Middle East countries) and does not come with the Pelikan logo at the pen cap that comes with most Pelikan pens. More information of this model can be found at “The Pelikan Perch”. This pen is a very good example of the M481 and you don’t get to see one in such a great condition on sale regularly. You hardly find this available in the market now (after 30+ years). The fountain pen is a piston filler and comes with a steel nib. Brand new, never inked and dipped. This pen comes with M nib (the pen even comes with the nib sticker on the barrel). It is unlikely I will be able to get more. Comes with an unmarked gift box. If you collect Pelikan demonstrators, this is a must to collect. A collectible for serious Pelikan collectors and a great gift for one! About 125 mm (4.92 in) in length when capped; and. About 150 mm (5.90 in) in length when posted. About 12mm (0.47 in) in width. Kindly drop me a message if you require more photos. Thank you for your interest! Please feel free to ask me if you have any question. Brand new with gift box. Fountain pen is in full mint condition i. Thereafter, I reserve my rights to re-list the item. All sales are final.
