Product description

The Maki-e Unique Collection

No 1: Lines of Fire

“Tataki Nuri” is the name of the painting technique which was used for this exquisite fountain pen. For this decorating method, a special sponge is used to create the pattern. The red lines of fire artfully interpret the traditional Pelikan stripes and shine with their vivid hue on the black ground.
