Celluloid, is a magic word for any pen collector, which brings to mind not only the golden age of writing instruments but also the transition spanning from the 1990s to the present day.
Pineider was able to successfully turn an old supply of materials into beautiful writing instruments that are made with the same production techniques utilized in the roaring twenties and with identical characteristics.
Throughout history, four primary techniques for creating celluloid pens have been recognized in pen literature: spiral wrap (spiral winding), funnel straight (funnel closure), flat mold (two-part seed press), and solid block methods. Certain techniques allowed for material conservation and consistent decorative patterns across the pen's entire 360 degrees, avoiding a side effect commonly seen in pens carved from solid blocks.
Finally, let us not forget the curing time, which is a necessary maturing process to stabilize the material and complete the drying phase. This process typically spans from 3 to 8 months, rendering the material workable, followed by an additional month during part fabrication.
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.
