Along with paper, ink, and inkstone, the brush is one of the Four Treasures of the scholar’s studio. Arguably the most important tool, the brush served as a direct link to the artist’s creative spirit. Polished stacked stone beads in a shade of luminous jade green form the handle of this large calligraphy brush. With bristles made of horsehair held by a bone fastener, a calligraphy brush of this proportion is traditionally used for broad, gestural brushstrokes.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

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.”
