- JUST FOR POSITION DO NOT DELETE
The sachet was hung from the waist by emperors and court ladies. This sachet is made up of two carved ivory pieces. Each piece is completely carved – either through or in intaglio – with motifs including little double gourds, flowers, sprays, and two Chinese characters for "Great Auspiciousness" (da ji) inscribed vertically. The carved motifs on the two sides are not in isolation. Rather, they correlate with each other. The yellow floss threads lace the two ivory pieces up so that they are tightly fastened. Judging from the artful design and meticulous crafting skills, this sachet is thought to have been made by a Cantonese ivory crafting master.
