Fireblue KAWECO Lilliput Fountain Pen
Kaweco is often confused with a Japanese brand! However Kaweco was established in 1883 in Heidelberg, Germany!
The Lilliput fountain pen is extra-compact and is one of the smallest Kaweco pens. It measures 9.6 cm when closed with a diameter of only 0.95 cm! Its cap screws onto the back of the pen to make it larger when writing. Made in Germany from a block of solid metal, this Fireblue model has a finish where the metal has been oxidized. Colors can change from pen to pen varying from light blue or deep blue to copper pink.
The name of the pen was taken from the book The Travels of Gulliver (Jonathan Swift, 1721) where miniature men called Lilliputians live on the imaginary island Lilliput located in the Indian Ocean.
