    Maki-E Lighters Dragon

Line D: Panther by Mori Enoki, Dragon Ryu, King Fisher, Orchid. Soubreny: Horse, Tiger, Eggshell Art Deco, Eggshell Serpent.

These lighters were only made to order when the customer would prepay and then Dupont would manufacture a Line "D" or Soubreny model lighter in gold trim and black chinese lacquer. Then the lighter travelled to Japan where the Master - craftsmen applied a special lacquer with 24 carat gold powder, eggshell or mother-of-pearl in a traditional Maki-E technique: layer after layer, polishing and re-applying until the lighter is complete. Each lighter takes about 3-4 months to finish. Many hours of hand work goes into each one. The best part is that these are unique because they are made by hand and there are always subtle differences in the details.
