Created during the Qing Dynasty, this hand-painted panel once concealed a compartment within a large cabinet. To the delight of its owners, each time the cabinet door was opened they were greeted by the image of these two charming young boys carrying lotus flowers. Children were a popular motif in Chinese artwork, and these youngsters were considered lucky talismans, especially for prospective parents hoping for a healthy pregnancy.

“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.”
