The wood used in this one of a kind, hand-painted pen is Huanghuali. Huanghuali, which translates to “ancient flowering pear,” was the wood of the Qing Dynasty royalty (1644-1912). It was harvested to extinction for use in creating royal thrones, cups, tables, and beds. Huanghualli wood is available today only in small quantities from the few carpenters allowed to work on the remaining pieces and furniture that come up for auction. A few years ago, a Huanghuali dining table set sold at Christie's for over 6 million dollars.
To complement the rich wood in the pen body, miniature artist Lynn Peterson hand-painted golden pheasants on the pen cap. The painting on the cap was on top of gold foil, made to mimic the lacquer boxes seen during the Qing dynasty. The golden pheasants themselves feature diamond dust in the colorful feathers, capturing the natural iridescence of the beautiful birds. The entire pen is sealed with a glassy lacquer, protecting the artwork and Huanghuali for generations more.
