Pelikan Maki-e M1000 Füllha Gingko & Maple Leaves Fountain Pen - Limited Edition (2012)
Available in just 88 numbered pieces worldwide, the Pelikan M1000 Maki-e Ginko & Maple Leaves Limited Edition fountain pen combines Pelikan's reputation for outstanding writing instruments with the exquisite art of Japanese Maki-e painting. Truly one of a kind.
This Ginko and Maple Leaves Limited Edition pen depicts traditional autumn motifs of Japan. Gold powder and charcoal is applied using Taka Maki-e technique to create the textured surface, while time-intensive Togidashi Maki-e is used for the application of the multiple layers of natural urushi lacquer and the painting of the intricately-detailed motif. Note the raised leaf motif found only in the top quality maki-e.
The artist's signature appears as gold Kanji (Japanese characters). The end cap is adorned with the Pelikan logo in maki-e (gold sprinkles).
