Classic Pens-Lambrou Limited Edition LS4 Asuka (Ancient Emporer City) Maki-e Fountain Pen I have been collecting pens, pen accessories, coins and limited edition bronzes for nearly 30 years and I have decided to downsize my collections and sell off nearly everything I have collected over the years.  Please check out my Pricetronic store The Next Phase for all of my current collection listings up for sale on Pricetronic. For sale is a very *RARE* new-old-stock pen from my personal collection: A Classic Pens-Lambrou Limited Edition 2003 LS4 Asuka (Ancient Emperor City) Maki-e Fountain Pen, Number 00 (Artist Proof) of just 15 Produced with an 18K Gold Medium ("M") Nib! FOUNTAIN PEN is NEW, NEVER DIPPED, INKED or DISPLAYED AN INCREDIBLE, RARE WORK OF ART! The LS4 Asuka (Ancient Emperor City) was launched in 2003. The composition utilizes blue pearl, white pearl, raised coral and pure gold creating a geometric three dimensional pattern.  Asuka is the name of the Ancient Emperor City and the Asuka period lasted 150 years during the sixth century. The city was located between three famous mountains, Yamato-Sanzan. The Asuka-kyo (Emperor City) was the largest and most important city of that period. The LS4 Asuka is an extension of the LS3 Ichimatsu (Repeating Rectangle) design. The gold and coral strips are longer and cover the whole height of each rectangle. This design is one of the most difficult to craft, in particular the coral strips which are cut and shaped to the exact size and then polished by hand. This time consuming preparatory work, however, gives a wonderful three dimensional effect to the composition. The outline of the design is etched on the pen body using a sharp tool called, 'Hari Kiri' and each and every piece of pearl, coral and gold is cut to size and shape by the artist. As the circumference of the pen body changes, the width of each strip is adjusted so that the repeat rectangle symmetry is maintained. A very laborious and testing process as it requires the highest degree of craftsmanship. Crafted on the Parker Duofold Centennial pen body, one of the most celebrated pen models of all time. The gripping section and part of the barrel are covered with natural Urushi colored lacquer and gold dust which complement the blue pearl inlaid on the cap and barrel. All Classic Pens-Lambrou LS designs carry the Red Seal signature of the creating artist.  The Asuka, bears the prestigious Red Seal signature of the artist Tatsuya Tōdō. Не also paints the individual limited edition number of the pen on the barrel end. The Pen is new and has NEVER BEEN INKED, DIPPED, DISPLAYED or USED.  I am the original and only owner of this magnificent fountain pen.   I purchased this pen directly from Andy Lambrou years ago.  It is EXTREMELY RARE as it is the ARTIST PROOF (#00) for the ENTIRE SERIES of 15 Fountain Pens! All pictures are original of the Asuka fountain pen; I never use stock photos for any of my Pricetronic listings!   Comes in a handmade green leather presentation case that would look beautiful on any desk.  Includes the multi-color outer Classic Pens cardboard box and white protective shipping sleeve.

I am not affiliated with any pen store, dealer or distributor, I am an individual pen collector selling off my private pen collection among other things I have collected in 30 years of collecting (I’m in the process of downsizing my personal possessions).  I describe each item I am selling to the best of my ability and strive for accuracy in my listings, so you know exactly what you are buying (nobody likes surprises, including me when purchasing something off Pricetronic)!  I have a 100% satisfaction rating as a Top Rated Pricetronic seller, and I am proud of it and stand behind everything I sell!
