Namiki Yukari Humming Bird
Humming birds are known to harvest nectar from hibiscus flower, a tropical flower which are rarely depicted in Japanese designs. On this Namiki Yukari Humming Bird fountain pen, the clarity of the feathers are evident with the togidashi and taka maki-e. Delicate gold powder is scattered on the black background to enhance the beauty of this vibrant bird.
Coloured lacquer together with traces of abalone shells Raden are also sprinkled on the barrel to enrich the vibrancy of the tropical bird.

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 Royal, and Yukari Collection, and this is the brand used by Pilot to sell their the high valued Maki-e pens worldwide.
