A Chinese calligrapher worked with many types of brushes to achieve the perfect stroke and often stored his brushes in a special container that had personal meaning. Each side of this 19th century rosewood brush pot from Northern China is inlaid with boxwood and bone depictions of young boys holding auspicious items: symbols of perpetuity. It is meticulously crafted with subtle feet, mitered edges and concealed joints.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
