This 18th century Chinese rank badge with tiger is officially joining the Retro51 x The Met collection!
The Tiger Rank Badge mentioned in the passage is a historical artifact that represents the hierarchical structure of the military and civil officials during the Ming and Qing dynasties in China. The badge was embroidered with a tiger design and indicated the rank of a senior commander or regimental vice commander.
The pen inspired by this badge is designed to capture the beauty and intricacy of the original artifact. The design is silk-screened onto the pen barrel with a lightly textured lacquer, and the polished brass accents provide a striking contrast. The Met logo is prominently displayed on the top ring and finial, and the pen comes with a numbered top disk and a commemorative packaging tube that can double as a pen stand.
Using this pen can inspire the user to find new courage in their writing, as the tiger symbolizes bravery and authority. The Tiger Rank Badge pen is a beautiful and unique writing instrument that can also serve as a conversation starter or a treasured addition to any collection.
