Most adult Tibetan men carried pouches like this one to carry their flint and tinder. They used these stones to start fires for their evening meals or light their pipes. The bottom of the pouch has a silver plate that was used to strike the flint. Flint pouches typically utilitarian objects but this one, clasped in finely cast silver, is unusually elegant and was likely to have been owned by a wealthy Tibetan man.

“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.”
