AP Limited Editions “The Writer” Imperial Red Urushi Fountain Pen
The Imperial Red, by AP Limited Editions is a bold and stately Maki-e product featuring a brilliant Red backdrop that is proudly bejewelled with a collection of precious and semi-precious materials. The skill of the Maki-e Artist is evident in the precise placement of white Diamonds, red Rubies, white Mother of Pearl and blue Raden, elegantly inlaid on the Imperial Red.
Urushi is the sap of the Urushi tree, native to Japan and has an opaque translucency to it. It can be mixed with natural pigments to produce only a select set of colors like Yellow, Black, Red, Brown and Green.
