Namiki Yukari Royal Chrysanthemum Flowers
From ancient times in Japan, the shape of the Chrysanthemum flower has been likened to the sun, and regarded as a symbol driving away evil spirits. The flower is also depicted in the Japanese royal emblem, with the stylised chrysanthemum blossom used as an imperial symbol, and as crests for recognition.
In addition, ancient Asian folklore believes that drinking the fresh dew collected from Chrysanthemums helps to lengthen one’s life. Thus, its blossoms have come to symbolise longevity and good fortune in the Japanese culture.
The captivating Namiki Yukari Royal Chrysanthemum Flowers Dew design portrays the Chrysanthemum in full bloom. It is decorated with gold taka maki-e, silver maki-e and mother-of-pearl, creating the picturesque imagery of elegant fresh Chrysanthemum flowers floating daintily down the willowy stream.
Using the famed Togidashi (burnishing) Maki-e technique, the Namiki Yukari Royal Chrysanthemum Flowers Dew fountain pen showcases a vivid and elegant design with fine lines and subtle colour graduations that make it life-like. Achieving this artistic workmanship is a tedious feat as it requires the most experienced and sensitive artisans to create the perfect imagery of the desired motif. Handcrafted and signed by Kayo Yamanashi.
