This distinctive and unique Pelikan M1000 fountain pen was crafted and drawn using the Kaga-Togidashi-Maki-e technique. This series is limited to 111 pieces worldwide and only 10 in the United States. Each fountain pen is equipped with an 18kt, two-tone gold nib and is encased in a traditional Japanese pen box made of paulownia wood. The peacock is considered as one of the most beautiful birds in the world for its exceptionally beautiful and vibrant feathers when it spreads its wings.Surprisingly, peacocks eat poisonous plants and bugs without being affected by them. Peacocks have been considered as a lucky symbol with the ability to prevent people from suffering and pain. The first step to create this Peacock Maki-e fountain pen was to give the surface a deep black impression using Japanese Urushi lacquer. Then the Maki-e artist inlaid the blue stripes of mother-of-pearl, surrounded by many small pieces of Kinhirame (flattened gold grains). In the next step, gold and silver powder was sprinkled all over the pen. After drying, the artist drew the colorful feathers in detail, using various colored Urushi lacquers. Finally, the surface was carefully polished.
The Peacock is a masterpiece that combines the craftsmanship of Pelikan Germany based on 180 years of tradition and technology coupled with superior Japanese traditional Maki-e painting techniques. Each fountain pen has the Pelikan logo on the crown, a limited edition number and the artists signature drawn in by hand using Maki-e techniques. Fully working and ready to write. Comes fitted with an original Pelikan 18k gold Medium (M) nib. Complete with all boxes and papers.
