The Souverän of Pelikan is popularly known as „Stresemann“, that's why Pelikan named the Souverän black-anthracite after Gustav Stresemann. Now Pelikan offers the Souverän in black-anthracite additionally to the sizes 800 and 400, in the very popular size 600. The barrel with the deceptively simple anthracite stripes is made of cellulose acetate. For the black, finely turned parts, high-quality resin was used. The clip and the rings are plated with palladium. The nib is made of completely rhodinized 14 carat gold, to match the silver sheen.
