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.

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
