Mountain Day & Nichibei Fuji Part 3

次回この記事の日本語版を投稿します。

In the first installment Mountain Day & Nichibei Fuji (Part 1) we noted that Nichbei Fuji used Mt Fuji as its trademark; the company was known to go to great lengths to design-in their trademark into parts (See also Fuji Feather Series 1, 2, 3, 4) the most common example being the infamous Nichibei Fuji fender ornament.  In the second installment we saw a fine example of the Nichibei Fuji trademark designed into a lock.  In this, the third installment, we shall take a look at yet another part that Nichibei Fuji designed-in their trademark.

At first glance this appears to be a snow capped mountain.  But actually this is the top portion of a white enamelled Nichibei Fuji rear reflector.Img_2539

Here is the Nichibei Fuji reflector.
Note how the top is mountain shaped, and, the bottom has the letters FUJI cut out.

Nichibei Fuji fenders had a distinct pointed, mountain shape, the countour is apparent in the design of the reflector.

Here is an example without the FUJI letter cutout, only the mountain peaks.
