One of the primary functions of the Chinese garden was to provide a setting for literary gatherings, places where poets and scholars convened with nature and commemorated the affair with poetry. Freely brushed in cobalt blue on white porcelain, this delightful vase depicts a scholar and his attendants in a garden. The artist’s deft hand animates the figures, capturing the sway of the scholar caught in a breeze and the impish grins of the attending boys. The spill of peaches at their feet suggests the bounty of the season and extends a wish of longevity.

“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.”
