Namiki Murasaki Shikibu Emperor Fountain Pen
The Namiki Murasaki Shikibu Emperor Fountain Pen pays special tribute to Murasaki Shikibu (紫 式部 c. 973 or 978 – c. 1014 or 1031) who was a Japanese novelist, poet and lady-in-waiting at the Imperial Court during the Heian Era. Best known as the author of The Tales of Genji.
Murasaki Shikibu is a nickname; her real name is unknown, but she may have been Fujiwara Takako, who was mentioned in a 1007 court diary as an imperial lady-in-waiting.
Taka maki-e high relief lacquer was applied on the beautiful lady who is painting behind the partition. Gold dusts were sprinkled against the black background and the pen clip to highlight the kimono lady who is enhanced with togidashi taka maki-e. A large 18kt jumbo 50 nib provides an immaculate writing experience for the ultimate owner of this extraordinary Emperor size fountain pen.
