Maki-e Spring & Autumn

As symbols of spring and autumn, Cherry Blossom and Maple are drawn on the cap and the barrel of the fountain pen. Three traditional Japanese designs are drawn and depicted on the cap background: a water stream in the green area, a hemp leaf pattern in the brown area and a golden stripe applied by using a lot of tiny pieces of gold foil. Additional artistic designs are drawn and featured on the barrel along with tiny pieces of blue shell used to create and make the beautiful Raden stripe. A never ending line pattern is drawn in the violet area which represents and implies eternal love. The Harikiri technique, considered to be one of the most difficult Maki-e techniques, is also used in the silver area offering a dramatic and beautiful finishing touch to this exquisite pen.

The “Spring & Autumn” is a masterpiece that combines the craftsmanship of Pelikan Germany based on over 175 years of tradition and technology coupled with superior Japanese traditional Maki-e painting techniques. The Pelikan logo on the crown, the limited edition number and the artist‘s signature are drawn in by hand on each fountain pen using maki-e techniques.

Each fountain pen is equipped with an 18 carat, two-tone gold nib and is encased in a traditional Japanese pen box made of paulownia wood. This series is limited to an edition of only 111 pieces worldwide.
