This finely crafted 19th century ink stone was carved by hand in China during the Qing Dynasty. An artist would have used this stone to mix the ink for his work. Traditional Chinese ink starts out as a solid stick or cake, which would be ground in the flat tray of this stone and then mixed with water. This ink stone has aged with a beautiful texture over time and calls to be touched.

“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.”
