Chinese blue-and-white porcelain has inspired ceramists worldwide since cobalt was first introduced to China from the Middle East thousands of years ago. This contemporary example of a traditional ginger jar was artisan made in Jiangxi province. Carefully painted in tones that range from saturated blues to delicate washes, the jar is lavishly embellished with floral motifs and a central illustration of a group of scholars, cultured artists and other literati of the time, making their way through a garden. The jar’s lid is topped with a shizi dog, a symbol of protection.

“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.”
