Revered for centuries for its elegant designs and rich cobalt blue and pure white colors, traditional Chinese blue-and-white porcelain lives on in this jar hand-painted with fish and flora of the sea, traditional symbols of prosperity and harmony. The underwater imagery of this jar was hand-painted with vibrant copper and indigo pigments prior to firing, a process of underglazing developed during the Song Dynasty. Traditional Chinese homes often feature large, striking ceramics such as this as both decoration and talismans of prosperity.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
