Accented with quatrefoil cutouts to provide airflow, this 19th-century porcelain hat stand was once used by a Qing-dynasty gentleman to display his cap while it wasn't being worn. The six-sided hat stand is painted with fanciful arrangements of stacked display stands laden with vases, censers, and treasured objects. Behind each vignette stands an ornate lamp hanger, strung with delicate lanterns and tassels. The lavishly decorated hat stand represents the opulence of Qing-dynasty court style, where rank and status was expressed through fashion and its accouterments.

This hat stand has a hairline crack along one side.

“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.”
