Namiki Rakucho Bird Fountain Pen

Namiki Rakucho Bird Fountain Pen which is an imaginary bird that flies about in paradise.  A pair of male and female Rakucho birds serenading each other with lovely song are depicted vividly by using Taka (Raised) Maki-e. The affection between the pair of birds suggests hopes of a long and happy marriage.  The petals on the weeping cherry are inlaid with coloured Raden (Mother-of-pearl) polished to a fine finish.   The trunk of the cherry tree in the background is painted using the Oh-hi-nuri (painting as cherry blossom bark), a traditional Kawarinuri painting technique.  This continuous pattern suggests a wish for the "eternity". The fantastic No. 50 18 karat gold nib is incredibly large writing instrument. This fountain pen has an eyedropper filling system. It uses the same ink stopping function as the original Namiki eyedropper pens from the 1930's, which regulates the flow and prevents leakage.

About Namiki

Namiki is the surname of Ryosuke Namiki, the founder of the Pilot, named Namiki Manufacturing Company until 1938 when it became Pilot Pen Co., Ltd.. The brand name Namiki came to fame in the early 20th Century when Dunhill retailed in the west the Maki-e pens produced by Pilot under the brand Dunhill-Namiki. This partnership has continued to the present day (occasionally Namiki makes a Limited Edition for Dunhill) although Namiki has always been owned by Pilot. The premium Namiki ranges include the Emperor Collection, Yukari Royale, and Yukari Collection, and this is the brand used by Pilot to sell their the high valued Maki-e pens worldwide.
