Monocle brass stationery range

These handsome items are made by a Hong Kong workshop that has been honing its craft since the 1980s. Based in the industrial district of San Po Kong on Kowloon, it is one of the last remaining brass factories in the city. The workshop has created an exclusive brass range for monocle, which now includes a trio of keyrings (featuring a flower, fan or square cut-out) and a bottle opener. All have a pleasant heft and will develop a lovely patina over time.

Made in: Hong Kong.
Materials: Brass and oak.
Keyrings: €18.
Bottle opener: €22.
Letter opener: €33.
Incense plate: €33.
Bookend: €50.
