This 18th century architectural object, hand carved out of a single block of white marble, is intricately finished with an all over celestial cloud motif—an ancient and auspicious Buddhist pattern. It may have been designed to stand outside of a Qing Dynasty temple. The top of the interior has a shallow dip, likely intended to support an architectural column. It is appreciated today as a sculptural planter indoors or out.

What They're Saying

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
