Namiki by Pilot Yukari Royale Golden Rose Limited Edition Fountain Pen
This pen is brand new complete with box and papers.
Holding what is precious and at the same time fleeting, the Golden Rose is fixed in an enduring form. Beauty, distinctive petals, rich aromas, and elegant flower shapes are the signatures of the ever-changing rose. The rose is often described as the symbol of love and beauty, and is one of the world’s most beloved flowers.
The Rose holds many stories. In Japan, poetry about the wild Japanese rose Noibara / Rosa multiflora is mentioned in the Manyoshu, Japan’s oldest anthology of poems.
The pen body of the Yukari Royale type has been decorated by the skilled artisan Yutaka, employing refined Maki-e lacquering techniques. The Golden Rose fountain pen’s combination of Togidashi-Taka (Burnished and Raised) Maki-e technique with Raden (Mother-of-Pearl) technique creates a powerful sense of depth. The rose flower utilizes Taka (Raised) Maki-e for a dense composure. The leaves are created by Warigai (Cracked Shell Inlaid) technique with Aogai (blue shell). The base is sprinkled with gold powder and burnished to a smooth luster.
This pen is presented in a leather-bound gift box with an embossed rose design on the lid. A special Inden pouch is also included with a repeated rose and Namiki logo motif and is made exclusively for this presentation. Inden is a Japanese traditional technique to draw a Urushi lacquer pattern onto deer hide.
