Namiki Mandarin Duck Ode To Love. Last Pen For Europe !


Sakura FP Gallery
 Share

Recommended Posts

The Namiki Emperor Mandarin Duck is an ode to love. It is adorned with a couple of Mandarin Ducks lovingly and

peacefully swimming on a pond bordered with reeds and flowers, in a decor of colorful maple leaves.

Mandarin Ducks are the only duck species that mate for life. Once they find a partner, they remain a couple until their death.

If one dies, the other one often disappears soon after. In Asia, they are a symbol of love, fidelity, and marital happiness.

In Japan, they are a lucky charm and often gifted as a wedding present.

Namiki released The Emperor Mandarin Duck in 2007. It is kept a secret how many pieces are made since then.

Namiki decided to end the theme with the mandarin ducks.

 

This Namiki Emperor Mandarin Duck is the very last in Europe.

This is the last chance to buy this beautiful Mandarin Duck!

 

Check out the website for more pictures. In real life, it is even more stunning.

Beautiful pen. Alas, I have to admire the craftsmanship and artistry of maki-e pens from a distance -- I can't take the risk of having an allergic reaction to the urushi finish (yes, I am THAT allergic to stuff like poison ivy :().

Unsure as to my sensitivity to the urushi and poison ivy. Definitely have an adverse reaction to a 9,500 Euro debit to my current life(style).

 

For me, that type of beauty must be admired fro afar.

 

Perhaps a large lottery winning will change my perspective.

Early on in the hobby, I found some website chock full of exquisitely beautiful maki-e pens. I said to my husband "Look dear! I've just saved you twenty THOUSAND dollars!" (The Philistine did not sufficiently appreciate my sacrifice. Which is partly why our 30th Anniversary was celebrated at the Triangle Pen Show....)

Unfortunately, for me I AM that sensitive to urushi -- I don't care HOW much they swear it's been sufficiently cured. Three runs of steroids and six weeks to knock out the LAST time I had poison ivy was enough of a lesson, for me to not trust it. :( Oh, and we didn't have air conditioning in that house (don't remember if that was the same year that we went to see Waterworld *solely* for being in AC for ~3 hours...).

:lticaptd: :lticaptd: I could not stop laughing about the amazing 20K savings and how it was met with lack of appreciation. Some people do not appreciate the sacrifice , we pen peeple do make

That exactly my syndrome whenever the pen is in the 4 digit category. :yikes:

Fortunately, plenty of options in the 995 and under USD/GBP/EUR category. laugh.png
