One can imagine the broad, expressive strokes this large calligraphy brush once traced on paper. At one time wielded by a Chinese artist-scholar, the brush has a plush head of horsehair bristles. The wood handle is covered in shagreen, a lush material of the rough skin of shark or sting ray.

“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.”
