Desk Card Holder Inlaid with Mother of Pearl Peony Design
This wooden business desk card holder is elegantly decorated with mother of pearl design of peony, orchid and chrysanthemum. The use of yellowish mother of pearl pieces to decorate the entire surface of a handicraft has been established as a major feature of the Korean najeon chilgi, or lacquerware inlaid with mother of pearl designs, since the late Joseon (1392-1910) period when it prospered. This desk card holder brings a sublime natural beauty onto a busy desk covered with modern plastic stationary.

The fully open peony blossom is traditionally a symbol of wealth and nobility. The orchid, one of the "four noble beings" (sagunja), that emits a fragrant aroma in a deep valley, symbolizes a noble sage leading an austere life. One of the "four noble beings" (sagunja) symbolizing fidelity and loyalty, the chrysanthemum has been one of the most favorite subjects used for adorning craftworks as it blooms until late autumn, thus overcoming the frost.
