Mother of Pearl Card Case with Birds and Korean Plum Flowers
This unique mother of pearl business card holder is ornamented with an intricate 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.
The embossed pattern on the backside and inside surface, which helps prevent slipping, adds beautiful panache to this card holder.
