Nakaya Portable Cigar Tulip Art Model

Nakaya's Art Model series utilizes acrylic powder sprinkled over a Urushi surface. The pen bodies in this series are acrylic rather than the usual ebonite, and each design is hand-painted - no two pens are exactly the same.

The Nakaya Portable Cigar Art Model Tulip fountain pen is handcrafted from ebonite and Urushi lacquer, and comes standard with solid gold 14k single-tone nib in your choice of tipping size.

The double slit Music nib is available at an added premium, as are plated nibs in Pink Gold, Rhodium, Ruthenium, or Two-Tone.
With its simple, slender shape and jet black background, the Nakaya Portable Cigar Art Model Tulip fountain pen provides an elegant showcase for a garden of tulips. Each flower is hand-painted using acrylic powders, creating unique variety on each pen. The pen body is made from high-quality acrylic resin, rather than Nakaya's traditional ebonite, in order to accommodate this special painting technique. Urushi lacquer on the finish adds shine.

Notice the stunning design details on the barrel. Brightly colored tulips in shades of yellow, orange, and red grow amongst lush green leaves. Between the tulips small blue flowers add a touch of color contrast.

Metallic powder sprinkled against the black lends to the feeling of movement, as if the flowers are swaying in the wind. Because the Cigar model has no clip, the beautiful tulip design fills the Portable pen without interruption.

Nakaya pens can be filled with bottled fountain pen ink using the provided converter, and can also use Platinum brand ink cartridges. Hand-painted Maki-e converters are also available.

These smooth-writing 14k nibs are also well-suited to customizations including Stub, Cursive Italic, or Left Oblique, as well as the modification for added flex.
Nakaya pens ship in a solid softwood shipping box decorated with Japanese Kanji script and lined with decorative rice paper. A fabric pen "kimono" and starter box of Platinum brand cartridges are also included, making this pen a lovely presentation item. Sensible and elegant packaging has long been a hallmark of the Nakaya brand.

Nakaya pens are individually handcrafted in a process that requires a minimum of three to six months and often much longer. 

Unless requested otherwise, each pen or nib you purchase from us will be carefully examined, tested, and optimized for your personal writing characteristics.
