Maki-e Fantasia

With this latest Limited Edition, Pelikan launches a Maki-e fountain pen that is both unusual and stunningly beautiful. Instead of the more typical landscapes, the Fantasia depicts a traditional Japanese design called “Komon Pattern”, which is commonly used for elegant Japanese Kimonos. Eight hexagons with eight different styles create subtle color combinations that delight the eye due to a wealth of details, all painted with painstaking love. The hexagons are surrounded by cherry blossoms in a reddish golden color which are based on a varying background that is painted with the “Byakudan-Nuri” technique, using gold leaf and clear lacquer. Due to this technique, the lacquer shimmers with surprising depth in a red and orange glow when you turn the fountain pen in your hands.

For the Pelikan Maki-e fountain pen Fantasia, the elaborate Kaga Togidashi-Taka-Maki-e technique was used. It is a masterpiece that combines German craftsmanship, based on over 175 years of tradition & technology, with superior Japanese Maki-e painting techniques which are renowned all over the world.

The Pelikan logo on the crown, the Limited Edition number, and the artist’s signature are all drawn by hand, using the Maki-e technique. This series is limited to only 88 pieces worldwide. Each fountain pen has an 18 carat, bi-color gold nib in size M and is encased in a traditional Japanese pen box made of Paulownia wood.
