Visconti Four Seasons Makie Limited Edition Fountain Pen 45502
A limited edition of 188 handmade, numbered fountain pens.
Visconti's Four Seasons Makie is a highly limited edition of fountain pens hand painted with the precious Japanese Maki-e technique.
On each of the fountain pen's sides a different season is presented on urushi panels using different techniques of maki-e. Each of the seasons is painted in a complicated decoration with characteristic images and colors.
Like the Supernatural Creatures pens, the Four Seasons is a creation of Master Oshita’s wrapped around Visconti's technical expertise.
The Four Seasons Makie was released in 2007, and is a double reservoir power filler fountain pen with a bi-color 18kt nib.
On each facet the four seasons are represented by Master Oshita’s wonderful paintings. The drawings were made using a mix of the most difficult to master maki-e techniques. The pen in itself symbolizes time’s passing: there is no beginning, no ending, just the never ending cycle of nature and life itself.
