Namiki Mount Fuji and Dragon fountain pen
This pen is like new and has a Fine nib.
This fountain pen has a resin barrel decorated using the Japanese Hira maki-e* technique by artist Kokkokai depicting a dragon at the foot of Mount Fuji under a cloudy sky.
The Nippon Art Collection takes traditional Japanese and auspicious subjects known the world over,
such as “Mt. Fuji”, “Hagoita (battledore)”, and “Origami”, and has them drawn on a black lacquered background in Hira Maki-e (Flat Maki-e).
The shiny black of the lacquer, along with the overflowing vibrancy from each work makes it a sight to behold.

* Using Hira maki-e the lacquered main design is decorated with sprinkled gold and silver powders. Several additional layers of lacquer are then applied. After the lacquer is hardened, it is then burnished.
