The Pelikan Maki-e Fireworks combines the drama of fireworks - brilliant colors and dramatic shapes - with the elegance of the Kaga Togidashi Maki-e.

Fireworks are a major cultural attraction in Japan where as many as 500 shows occur annually. Although upward of 20,000 fireworks are used per display, they fall into just two main categories: Kiku-mono and Botan-mono. The first of these, Kiku-mono, refers to the 'chrysanthemum type' in which sparks leave a descending trail of sparks behind them, disappearing gradually into the inky black sky. Botan-mono - the 'peony type' - do not leave these trails, but explode in a massive and brilliant flash.

This Maki-e pen depicts the experience of the Japanese firework display in its rendering of an orange Kiku-mono on the cap and multiple Botan-mono along the length of the barrel. Premier quality mother-of-pearl shellwork (raden) is inlaid, as is gold. The Pelikan logo is on the crown, along with the limited edition number and the artist's signature, which is also hand painted using Maki-e technique.

We offer this pen with any one of the complete range of 18k Pelikan M1000 nibs, including the 1.5mm Italic.
Each individual pen is held in a beautiful Paulownia wood pen presentation box which reflects the marriage of Pelikan technology with traditional Japanese craftsmanship.
