This 19th-century Chinese lock once brightened the façade of a lacquered cabinet with a flash of golden brass. Demonstrating the aesthetic value placed on even the most everyday items, the lock is etched with a traditional design of two dragons soaring towards a flaming pearl, an emblem of the sun, of the moon, of balance, and of power. Elevated by a custom steel mount, the lock has an elegant, balanced form and a beautifully aged patina.
