Capture the glimpse of colorful scene in the autumn of Japan with Five Kingfisher writing instrument introduced by Pelikan in its Maki-e series!
Maki-e is the art of Japanese lacquer painting and is renowned for its beauty and artistry. The Pelikan “Kingfisher” Maki-e fountain pen uses Togidashi-Taka-Maki-e that combines both Taka-Maki-e and Togidashi-Maki-e techniques.
Kingfisher is a small bird that lives near the waterside. The kingfisher has a long, dagger-like beak. The plumage of most kingfishers is bright, with green and blue being the most common colors. In Japanese, it is also called jade or blue gemstone because of its bright colors. Kingfishers are capable of compensating for the refraction of water and reflection when hunting prey underwater, and are able to judge depth under water accurately. The name of Kingfisher is named after a fish master who preys on small fish and crayfish.
On the fountain pen, two beautiful Kingfishers are vividly painted on the background of burning red autumn leaves.
The “Kingfisher” is a masterpiece that combines the crafts-manship of Pelikan Germany based on 180 years of tradition and technology coupled with superior Japanese traditional Maki-e painting techniques. Each pen has the Pelikan logo on the crown, a limited edition number, and the artist’s signature drawn in by hand 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.
