With the first auction complete we’re starting to get a brief glimpse of what’s to come with these one-of-a-kind maki-e fountain pens. The Snow Crystal was the first auction to end earlier today. It’s based on the M800 and started with a minimum bid of €2,100 (~$2577). Six days into the auction and the price had only risen €250, but in the last six minutes of bidding the price rose over €1000 to an impressive finish of €3,450 (~$4476).
It’ll be very interesting to see how the pens compare. Stop back here each day to find out. You can find out more about each pen and the auction at pelikan.com/auction.
