Dragonflies are famous for their exceptional flying properties. As they only fly forward and never go backwards, they are considered as a lucky symbol in Japanese mythology representing endurance and perseverance. During the age of wars in Japan, Samurai used the design of dragonflies as an ornament for their ordnance.
There are five dragonflies vividly drawn on the beautiful background of the fountain pen barrel. This background depicts ‘Tsugigami”, a traditional Japanese paper made by connecting various pieces of paper. The image of the dragonfly is created by using many different Maki-e techniques such as Raden, Byakutan-nuri, Kawarinuri and Togidashi-Taka-Maki-e.
The “Dragonfly” is a masterpiece that combines the craftsmanship of Pelikan Germany based on 179 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 artist’s signature drawn in by hand using Maki-e techniques. This series is limited to an edition of 111 pieces worldwide. Each fountain pen is equipped with an 18 carat, twotone gold nib and is encased in a traditional Japanese pen box made of paulownia wood.
The M1000 fountain pen has a plunger filling mechanism, gold plated fittings, differential piston-filled ink system with solid brass parts. Large hand-crafted finely engraved 18k /750 gold flexible nib with bi-colour rhodium decoration.
The pen we have in stock is number 56 out of 111.
