PLATINUM: Moonlight and Pavillion Maki-e Fountain Pen
Beneath a verdant mountain, a hillside pavillion reposes over a tranquil stream. An exquisite lever-filled pen, circa 1930s. Decorated in hiramaki-e and subtle takamaki-e with delicate shades of gold and grey on black urushi lacquer. The scene radiates a calm golden glow, elegantly reflected by the goldplated cap ring and clip. Signed by the artist in red. Size #4 14K gold nib. Light brassing to cap ring. No box.
