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 "Maiko in Kyoto" is a masterpiece with a finely-chased 18 carat gold nib accentuated with a rhodium décor. This pen was realeased in 2010 with only 88 units, and has a lifetime warranty!
  • In addition, the artist can mix charcoal powder and gold powder into the lacquer, so that the pattern of the design is raised above the surface: If your thumb glides over the surface, you will feel the difference. This is called the Taka-Maki-e technique.
  • A Maiko is a young apprentice who trains in arts and customer service manners.
  • The Pelikan Maki-e fountain pen “Maiko in Kyoto” depicts a graceful Maiko, standing on a stone pavement in falling cherry blossom petals with the historical five-storied pagoda of Kyoto in the background. It takes up the theme of Maiko, one of the symbols of the ancient capital of Kyoto.
