Best Of The Best 2006: Porcelain Doll

<< Back to Robb Report, June 2006

Each porcelain Loiminchay FuShou fountain pen is unique because an artisan from the Chinese province of Jingdezhen—known for its superb ceramics—shapes, fires, and finishes it by hand. In addition to its substantial size, the $11,000 pen features strong color contrasts that make it even more dramatic. Golden Chinese symbols signifying long life and good fortune embellish the sapphire blue cap, and handpainted tea-colored branches, green leaves, and sunset-hued flowers decorate the milky white barrel.
