About the Pineider Ancient Material

The Pineider Ancient Material fountain pens' celluloid brings to mind the golden age of writing instruments. The exciting new release showcases classic Pineider design features pen collectors love elevated by the stunning celluloid discovery and design additions that enhance Pineider's classic elegance.

The Pineider Ancient Material fountain pens feature one of two beautiful celluloid colors paired with palladium trim. The classic Pineider quill feather marine steel pen clip offers a slightly elongated design. The cap is magnetic, and the pen also features a magnetic post. The luxury pen uses a piston filling system, and each is fitted with a Quill nib in 14 kt gold 585 hyperflex. Removing the pen's cap reveals a beautiful series of ink windows circling the pen's barrel and showing the pen's ink level. The Pineider Ancient Material fountain pens are a limited edition collection limited to just 288 pens per color.

The Pineider Ancient Material fountain pens are made of non-flammable celluloid sourced from a unique discovery of stock materials intended for eyewear - the equivalent of a lottery win for a pen company. Typically, the materials suitable for eyewear are too thin to use in crafting luxury writing instruments. However, by employing long-forgotten techniques used regularly in the 1920's, Pineider was able to create a beautiful new collection not only utilizing production techniques common in the roaring twenties, but also with identical characteristics.

Celluloid and its family exhibit exceptional qualities, such as unparalleled durability, as exemplified by historic advertisements from the twenties, showcasing pens being thrown from planes or into the Grand Canyon to highlight this virtually unbreakable attribute. Moreover, the richness and diversity of colors offered by celluloid remain unmatched by any other material.
Originally employed to imitate natural materials like tortoiseshell or ivory, celluloid designers have unleashed their creativity, producing thousands of diverse effects limited only by their imagination.

When creating celluloid pens, history shows four primary techniques: spiral wrap (spiral winding), funnel straight (funnel closure), flat mold (two-part seed press), and solid block methods. The curing time for celluloid can span anywhere from 3 to 8 months, after which the material is stabilized, and the drying phase is complete. Once the curing stage renders the celluloid workable, another month is required for part fabrication. The extensive process required when creating fine writing instruments using the coveted celluloid material paired with the decreasing amount available has left pen collectors and writing enthusiasts with fewer and fewer options.

Also available in rollerball.
