A serie of "Turbo-Matador"

The Matador brand belongs to Siebert & Löwen, founded in 1895 by Adolf Siebert and Ewald Loewen and operating in the production of office supplies, with production in Wuppertal-Elberfeld(?). It is not known an exact date for the fountain pens market entry, but activities in that field can tracked back at least at 1911, date of the first known patent (nº FR-431385) for a safety. The production of the beginning of the 20s was aimed at creating economic pens of good quality, with a very good quality/price ratio. The company is also known as Standard-Matador.

Nel 1949 circa[1] produsse quello che probabilmente è il primo cappuccio ermetico a scatto, con il modello denominato Matador-Click, dal rumore che contraddistingueva la corretta chiusura del cappuccio. Nomi di altri modelli: Matador Dipless, Matador Express, Matador Standard, Matador 811, Acca, Turbo-Matador.

Notes

  1. in un suo libro Andreas Lambrou riporta come probabile quest'anno, in questa discussione viene riportato il 1946, mentre la possibile esistenza di una garanzia originante addirittura al 1936 si è rivelata non attribuibile con certezza a questo modello.
