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.

“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.”
