Mother of Pearl Letter Opener Blade with 10 Creatures of Longevity
 
This stylish letter opener blade is ornamented with a mother of pearl design of sipjangsaeng, 10 creatures that ancient Koreans, influenced by the Taoist philosophy, believed were created to enjoy eternal youth: sun, stone, water, cloud, pine tree, deer, bulnocho ('herb of eternal youth'), turtle, crane, and mountain. Inspired by the belief in a Taoist utopian world resided by Taoist elders who had found the secret of eternal life, ancient Koreans revealed their dreams of such a world through the 10 creatures.

The elaborate adornment with the iridescence of mother of pearl designs makes it an impressive item for collection. This letter opener will make a gift of great sophistication, cherished significance, and kind-heartedness. Read More
