Pelikan Mubyo & Takara-zukushi (Health & Wealth) Limited Edition Fountain Pen Set. The Mubyo & Takara-zukushi, also known as "Health" & "Wealth", is a remarkable two-pen set from Pelikan decorated in astonishing detail by master Japanese artisans. Each pen features a Souveraen 1000 pen body crafted in Germany and comes with a Medium nib. A traditional Japanese gift box which is made of Paulownia wood encases each beautiful creation. In this set, two basic human cravings have been symbolized health, called Mubyo in Japanese, and wealth, which translates as Takara-zukushi.On the Mubyo fountain pen, six gourds (special bowls) are depicted. According to Japanese legend, God lives in a large gourd. For this reason, it is highly valued as a charm. A combination of six gourds in Japanese is pronounced as Mubyo which means absence of sickness. Therefore these six gourds are cherished items believed to be able to bestow a long and healthy life. On the Takara-zukushi model, several figures are shown. They all symbolize wealth and are drawn in the traditional Japanese Kissho design, which is said to bring good fortune. Nyoi-hoju: This precious globe realizes ones wishes.
Hoh-yaku: The key to the treasury. Uchide-no-Kuzuchi: The magic hammer that grants whatever one has wished for.Choji: The tropical evergreen tree supplies herbal medicine and spices. In addition to the above symbols, Tachibana (a mandarin orange), Tabane-noshi (a bundle of tokens attached to a gift), Fundo (a traditional balance to measure weight), Kinchaku (a fabric pouch) and Makimono (a roll of document) are drawn. These symbols are believed to bring good fortune and are also used as designs in traditional Japanese clothing and the sash.
