Pelikan Souverän Μ1000 Raden Sunrise Limited Edition Fountain Pen
Limited Edition - Souverän® M1000 Raden Sunrise
Raden is a traditional Japanese decorative craft mainly used for lacquer-ware and woodwork.
By working with small stripes of precious shell material, the artist of the Raden pen creates a beautiful, impressive piece of art.
Each piece is truly unique.
The first step to create the fountain pen Raden M1000 Sunrise is to give the surface an intense red impression by using the special Japanese Urushi lacquer. Then the typical stripes are made with parts from the precious mother of pearl shell. In the next step the stripes are fixed to the cap and barrel by a coating of laquer. Finally, the artist individually signs and numbers each fountain pen with the Maki-e technique, which used to be reserved exclusively for Japanese Royals as an indication of their power.
With the limited edition Raden series, Pelikan applies this wonderful Japanese decorative craft to fountain pen models of its famous Souverän® series.
The Raden M1000 Sunrise fountain pens are pieces of art with finely-chased 18 carat gold nibs in the size M.
Each fountain pen is encased in a traditional Japanese gift box which is made of Paulownia wood.
The Raden M1000 Sunrise was introduced in 2016 in a limited edition of 333 numbered pieces worldwide.
The M1000 is 14.6 cm long when capped, and weights 34.1 grams empty.
