This is the Eight Horses pen. Eight is a very lucky number to the Chinese so this pen is designed to bring luck to the owner. The cap has a gold plated stud set in the domed black top button. Just below this is a gold plated band imprinted with the manufacturer's name, and a very nice fluted gold plated pocket clip. Near the lip is a gold plated band. The end of the barrel narrows to allow the cap to post very firmly. In the centre of the barrel is a beautiful brushed and antiqued metal overlay with a relief decoration of the eight horses in the pen's title. This is interspersed with Chinese characters, and a decorated border top and bottom. The section is slightly textured and bounded by gold-plated bands either side. The nib is partially gold plated and in a medium point.
