This black lacquered brush pot, which was an essential fixture of a scholar's studio, is hand-painted with alternating depictions of garden scenes and flower motifs. These ornate gilt paintings have mellowed beautifully, revealing a depth of character that only time can achieve. This brush pot once held a collection of brushes for use in calligraphy and painting.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
