This early 20th-century ceramic jar is formed in a traditional shape meant for storing wine and spirits made from rice and grains. Known as cheng, these jars are defined by having a wide body with dramatically restricted neck and base, and were also used to store vinegar, oil, or condiments. The jar has a wonderfully balanced, oblong form accentuated by an all-over dark brown glaze. The product and maker's name is written in wax resist near the top, identifying the contents as double steamed wine from Jiujiang in Guangdong province.

“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.”
