Pelikan has been losing market share for the last few years. In fact, we have not saw a successful Maki-e Limited launched since the HEAVENLY MAIDENS OF DUNHUANG Limited Edition.
This year (2012), we think Pelikan might have found the correct balance between their theme, artwork and price point with their latest launched of their Fuji and Cranes maki-e limited edition.
One can find all the favor and popular motif in the new Pelikan Maki-e Limited Edition 2012 Fuji & Cranes.
Like all the oriental theme art, the artisan paints not any other number but three cranes which is cherished symbols of long life and good luck.
Beside the Mount Fuji and Cranes, the artisan painted the well loved cherry blossoms.
