Due to their many seeds, gourds are appreciated in China and Tibet as auspicious symbols of fertility. When dried, gourds became durable natural vessels used as ladles, flasks, or even as musical instruments. This Tibetan flask is made of such a dried gourd, shaped into the double gourd form, a common symbol of good fortune. Crafted over 150 years ago, the flask is fitted with silver hardware inset with turquoise stones and is still in remarkable condition. We've set the flask on a custom steel base for display.

“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.”
