Maki-e Seaside

The glittering water of the curling wave on the barrel immediately draws the eye to this fantastic painting of Maki-e artist Shozo Nakamura. He modeled the design of the Pelikan Seaside fountain pen on the painting ”The great wave of Kanagawa” by Hokusai Katsushika, who was one of the most famous Japanese painters in the Edo Era and particularly well-known for his series called “the thirty-six sceneries of Mount Fuji”. Due to the skilful use of tiny pieces of mother-of-pearl and egg shell, the painting on this extraordinary Pelikan M1000 fountain pen comes alive. To complete the seaside feeling, the cap is decorated with two Japanese traditional kites, also taken from the Edo Era, and plover birds that swoop over the waves.

For this model, several Maki-e drawing techniques were combined, using Kaga Togidashi-Taka Maki-e. The Pelikan logo on the crown as well as the limited edition number and the artist’s signature are also all drawn by hand, using the Maki-e technique.

Due to the combination of more than 175 years of Pelikan know-how and superior Japanese Maki-e techniques, the Seaside is a masterpiece with incredible details. Is is globally limited to only 88 pieces, each with a carefully created 18 carat bi-color gold nib. Every fountain pen is encased in a traditional Japanese pen box made of Paulownia wood.
