Namiki Dunhill

In the 1980s, following their purchase by Dunhill, Montblanc began producing pens and pencils for Dunhill. These were mechanically Montblanc but styled by Dunhill with the distinctive black lacquer inlay on the clip. This fountain pen is based on the Montblanc Noblesse and has the Noblesse section and nib. But it is a distinctive design for Dunhill, which they call “Gemline”. The pen has rectangular barrel and cap with rounded corners with thick gold plating in a barleycorn pattern. The pen was designed for use with cartridges or converter


DUNHILL-NAMIKI: Rare Goose and Pink Flower Maki-e Fountain Pen, Original Design, 1930s An artistically significant Dunhill-Namiki Goose and Pink Flower pen in gold, silver-grey and vermillion takamaki-e on black lacquer ground, not signed. Flat-top vest-form body, gold-plated cap band. 131mm. Lever-filler (missing “lifebuoy” tip). 14K gold #6 Dunhill-Namiki heart-vent nib, tines slightly bent. An excellent rarity, this pen was the inspiration for one of Namiki’s most successful modern limited edition designs (the 2002 NAMIKI: Goose and Pink Flower Maki-e Limited Edition 83 Fountain Pen), regarding which Christophe Larquemin offers these remarks: “An exact replica of a model created in the 1930s, its main subject is a goose. It emanates vivacity and charm, like a character straight out of a children’s story.... Although the collector’s eye is drawn to the charming web-footed fowl, I would like you to look at the bouquet of superb carnations, which, I feel, brings poetry and freshness to the composition. Clearly identifiable by their narrow pink petals, these nadeshiko, fringed pink, are symbols of autumn and gentle first love. Japanese literature has many references to this flower.” -From The Four Seasons of Namiki, [Paris: 2009], pp. 140-141
