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.
