China was the earliest known civilization to make cast iron. It first appeared thousands of years ago during the illustrious Zhou dynasty. Made in the mid-19th century, this low, wide-mouth urn on tripod feet references the earliest forms of cast iron. Worn with time and use, the vessel has developed a rusted red patina that adds another layer of texture to its relief floral decoration. Once used for more utilitarian purpose, we like it filled with greenery.

“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.”
