Mother of Pearl Knife Letter Opener with Korean Red Plum Flower
This stylish knife letter opener is ornamented with an elegant mother of pearl design of Maehwa (Korean plum blossom). One of the sagunja ("four noble beings") motifs loved by Korean artists, maehwa refers to the Korean plum blossom that has long been the herald of spring. Korean artists have been fascinated by maehwa, which blooms at the end of winter, and thus have praised it as a symbol of the noble spirit overcoming all hardships.
Unlike other machine-cut printed mother of pearl designs, the mother of pearl designs on this unique letter opener, which are delicately jigsaw-cut by hands, are individually inlaid by our skilled artisan as shown in the large picture. The arrangement of iridescent design's luster and color made of two different types of mother of pearl creates wonderful harmony with the black background, making it a remarkably attractive piece. This letter opener will make a gift of great sophistication, cherished significance, and kind-heartedness. Read More
