An exquisite interpretation of traditional Japanese design, the swirls of silver ripples beautifully stylize the effect of light on water. The contrast between the brilliant colors and the muted metal urushi gives depth to the composition. Medium 18ct gold nib imprinted with Mt. Fuji in a white platinum wash and the Namiki pentagon. Includes original wooden box, packaging, ink bottle and artisan autographed paper.
