Our Ming Blossoms Necklace adapts motifs from a pair of splendid wood wardrobes (Ming dynasty, late 16th or early 17th century). The front of each wardrobe bears an overlaid design of delicate blossoms and colorful birds created with mother-of-pearl, amber, glass, and ivory. The Museum’s collection of Asian art showcases the material prosperity experienced under the Ming, whose name aptly translates as “brilliant.”
