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 coloured 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 “Mt. Fuji and Cranes” is a masterpiece with a finely-chased 18 carat gold nib accentuated with a rhodium décor.
  • 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 Crane is a symbol of longevity and good fortune, and we see them flying around the sacred Mt. Fuji. Cherry blossoms, another typical symbol of Japanese culture, are also hand-painted on this magnificent pen.
