Phoenix Lacquer Art Russian Fleet
Item no: PHO-08
Every fountain pen from Phoenix Lacquer Art is one-of-a-kind. These pens have been painted with unparalleled precision, using techniques from Russian lacquer miniature art as practiced from the 16th century in Palech, among others. The painting has traditionally been done in egg tempera or oil paint, applied directly to the ebonite base of the pens or to a thin sheath of gold leaf.
The base of this Phoenix Lacquer Art fountain pen comes from the Visconti factories in Italy, hand-turned from one piece of ebonite. This Phoenix Lacquer Art Russian Fleet must be filled with the supplied eyedropper pipette, as is also common in some Japanese fountain pens. Connected to the rear cap, there is a rod in the holder with a gasket inside at the other end to separate the ink guide and reservoir. Loosening the back knob slightly allows the ink guide to be supplied with ink. Tightened again, the two compartments are separated and the ink supply is safely stored.n.
