Namiki Hina Dolls Limited Edition
Namiki draws inspiration from its century old cultural event, the Hina Matsuri, or Doll’s Festival (3 March annually) in Japan. Namiki Hina Dolls Limited Edition pays homage and immortalizes the beauty of Japan’s most celebrated tradition in elegance with a 70 pairs limited edition of red and black Yukari Royal size fountain pens.
The Yukari Royal size limited edition pens are sold in pairs. The red pen is called Mebirna Princess Doll while the black fountain pen is called the Obirna Prince Doll. Handcrafted by Mamoru Wakabayashi.
The Obirna Prince Fountain Pen is captured against a midnight black background using togidashi (burnished) maki-e technique. Taka maki-e expresses the Prince motif with high relief with the mandarin orange tree on the cap. The Mandarin Orange tree “Ukon no Tachibana” symbolizes auspiciousness and longevity as it is known to grow all year round regardless of climate.
Matching which is the Mebirna Princess Doll which is elegantly poised against a vivid vermillion Yukari Royal size fountain pen. The cap bears the cherry blossom, known widely as “Sakon no Sakura” represents good omen and blessings.
Together, the Namiki Hina Dolls Limited Edition Fountain Pens express the wish of health and harmony among families through generations.
Each pen is adored with 18kt gold nib with rhodium accents. The packaging is in a luxurious box finished in lacquer and comes with two types of original ink bottles, bearing matching mandarin orange and cherry trees as well as a “Byobu” (gold folding screen) and “Bonbori” (paper lantern), so collectors can enjoy the view of the Hina Dolls as closely depicted in the Doll’s Festival.
