The Zippo Koi Lighter features a beautiful Koi (Carp) motif masterfully created using various Maki-e techniques in warm gold and red tones. A symbol for love and friendship, the Koi is popular among many cultures and depicted in a variety of art forms. This edition of the Zippo lighter portrays the magnificent Koi in breathtaking splendor.
The ancient art of Maki-e requires extremely thin layers of lacquer to be applied, smoothed and polished, whilst creating the pattern by precisely sprinkling flakes and powders of precious materials, such as gold, silver and mother-of-pearl, onto the wet lacquer before each layer hardens.
This rare Zippo Koi Lighter has never been used and is in mint condition. It comes in its original wooden box with care booklet. Our images accurately represent the lighter for sale!
