DUNHILL NAMIKI, maki-e lacquer pen decorated with pagoda in a wooded landscape, executed in iroe-hira-taka maki-e with oki-birame,aogai inlay and Mura Nishiji and 14 -karat band ( c. 1930 ). NAMIKI lacquer over sterling silver, one of the rarest maki-e pens ( c. 1927-1935 ). WATERMAN # 12 - 1/2 eyedropper pen in black hard ruber , with japanese made Hiramaki-e and Tka-maki-e overlay. Note that the imprint area was left untouched. Acordind to what had been refered to me when I bought this pen, it belonged to an American lady who when travelling to Japan in hollidays in the beginning of the twenty century , became in love with this kind of ancient japanese art and comissioned a Lacquer artist to do this work on her pen!

Detail of the nice takamaki-e and heavy hiramaki-e with kirikane. A wonderful work made certainly by a lacquer master who didn´t sign his work.
