Special features:

  • Maki-e is the art of Japanese lacquer painting and is renowned for its beauty and artistry. The word Maki-e literally translates as “sprinkled picture” because the design is sprinkled with gold or silver powder.
  • For the process, the rare Japanese lacquer Urushi is used in a multitude of layers which are polished many times. The design is drawn with colored lacquer onto the surface. It is then sprinkled with a multitude of lacquer-layers. This is called the Togidashi-Maki-e technique
  • The Pelikan model “Four Leaf Clover” is a masterpiece decorated with different clovers, some of which are finished in mother-pearl (raden). This limited edition was released in 2011 and only 88 peices were made worldwide.
  • Taka-Maki-e lacquering completes the process with carbon powder to give the pen's surface some texture.
  • The Pelikan logo on the crown, limited edition number and artist’s signature are drawn in by hand with the Maki-e technique.
  • The four leaf clover is a good-luck amulet, but, it's even more difficult to find a five-leaf clover, like the one you can see on this pen! This limited edition was made to bring good luck and fortune to its owners and comes with a lifetime warranty from Pelikan.
