Pelikan Souveran M800 Raden Royal Gold Fountain Pen
Pelikan’s 2017 Raden Royal Gold Maki-e M800 is exquisitely crafted using centuries-old Japanese Raden Maki-e techniques. This exquisite piece of functional art is crafted utilizing the Raden technique, a traditional Japanese technique which combines lacquer and woodworking using inlays of abalone shells, ivory, and other fine materials. Historically, Raden Maki-e pens were created for Japanese Royals as an indication of their power. The elegant black and gold stripe pattern on the cap and barrel is created by layering the pen with a special black Urushi lacquer. Gold stripes are then inlaid using a 14K gold foil, and enhanced by the addition of mother of pearl. Royal Gold is a masterpiece of German craftsmanship and Japanese artistry. The M800 fountain
pen has a two-tone 18K gold nib. Presented in a Japanese wood box. Limited to 388 pieces, signed and numbered by the Maki-e artist. Bottle fill only.
