About Namiki Yukari 2021 Limited Edition Fountain Pen - Tanuki
The Namiki Yukari Tanuki fountain pen is made using Hira & Togidashi Maki-e techniques, and contains gold powder to give great elegance to this piece of art.
The Tanuki is a pretty little vixen dog that we frequently find in the form of auspicious figurines at the entrance of the shops in the land of the rising sun. If you write its name in phonetic characters, it means “surpassing others” and remains a symbol of commercial prosperity. It is often characterised by 8 attributes, called the "8 blessings":
• The straw hat against evil,
• The eyes to recognize a customer’s potential,
• The happy face with the indispensable smile in the business world,
• The rounded belly that evokes safety,
• The sake vial that recalls moderation in behaviour,
•The general ledger to balance revenues and expenditures,
• The thick tail that symbolizes stability,
• The bag of gold coins for prosperity...
This magnificent Yukari fountain pen will bring happiness and success to its purchasers in this special period.
The pen is limited to 300 pieces world-wide and is signed by KOKKOKAI group’s artisans.
The pen comes with an 18ct gold nib and uses cartridges or an ink converter (supplied).
