This elegant set of eating utensils dates to the mid-19th century and would have accompanied a well-to-do traveler on a long cross-country journey. The set includes a pair of ivory chopsticks and a long blade with a highly decorated handle. The handle and scabbard having matching designs, both crafted of blackwood with brass and bone inlay of Buddhist and Taoist symbols, including the parasol, golden fish, infinite knot, and double gourd. We've elevated this Qing-dynasty traveling set on a custom steel mount for display as a storied sculptural object.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
