Namiki Yukari Royal Frog Fountain Pen
Extraordinary artistry and craftsmanship, along with superior attention to detail, embody the essence of the Japanese Maki-e' art form. The exquisite
hyper-realistic, animal inspired design of the Yukari Royale Frog is brought to life through the thousands of skillful touches of the master artisan. The
artisan started with drawing the intricate lines of the frogs, leaves and water designs on the lustrous black Urushi lacquer surface, and then skillfully
sprinkled 18-karat gold foil and powder in a continuous manner creating a dimensional, powerful and expressive masterpiece. Captured stunningly on the body of the fountain pen, the artisan has expressed the passage of time by portraying a variety of flowers that come into bloom at different times
throughout the year. The tranquil flow of water is expressed with luminous Raden (Mother-of-pearl) and Kawari-nuir. Also among the carefully curated
scene are three golden frogs dynamically depicted moving around in a lively manner. Frogs in Japanese, also referred to as “kaeru,” are known to be a popular motif as a lucky charm that will bring health, longevity, protection and wealth.
