China was the earliest known civilizations to work with cast iron, first appearing thousands of years ago during the illustrious Zhou dynasty. Continuing the time-honored craft of metalwork, this contemporary urn references 19th-century vessels that were used for collecting rain water and kept near homes in case of fire. The urn is decorated in high relief with storied depictions of the seasons, each panel filled with a different flowering plant. A wise man with his student accompanies wild animals in appreciating the beauty of their natural surroundings. Trimmed with patterns furthering the botanical theme, this auspicious container makes for a fantastic planter.
