Japanese artisans have long held mastery in the creation of miniature treasures, or netsuke. Carved from bone, this leaf with a central chrysanthemum medallion would have been a waist charm intended to bring comfort and luck. Chrysanthemums blossom during autumn time and last longer than most, even through frost, so are held as traditional symbols of longevity. It is mounted on a custom steel stand.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
