The pen features intricate details and a stunning design, making it a perfect choice for those who appreciate beauty and sophistication.
The pen features a black resin barrel that is decorated with a stunning image of a snake and a frog, which is created using the traditional Japanese Maki-e technique. Maki-e art is a traditional Japanese lacquerware technique that involves sprinkling gold or silver powder onto wet lacquer to create intricate designs. A snake and frog scene depicted using this technique is a stunning example of the art form. The artwork showcases a beautifully detailed scene of a snake and a frog in a natural setting, perhaps in a garden or near a pond. The gold or silver powder sprinkled onto the lacquer adds depth and texture to the design, making the snake and frog appear almost lifelike. Maki-e art is a highly skilled and time-consuming process that has been used for centuries to create breathtaking works of art.
The fountain pen nib is made from 14-karat solid gold and is available in a medium size. The nib provides a smooth and precise writing experience, making it ideal for both everyday use and special occasions.
