This 19th century broad stroke calligraphy brush has a tree branch handle that was carved by an artisan to enhance the look of the "bark". In China during the Qing Dynasty, when this unique brush was made, a true scholar was required to be a fine calligrapher. Young men who were taking examinations were not only graded on their responses to the test’s questions, but on their skills in wielding a calligraphy brush like this one.

“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.”
