This drum form pedestal was carved from a single block of white marble by Qing-dynasty artisans in the mid-19th century. Ringing both its top and bottom, an etched pattern of nail heads imitates those used to stretch a skin on an actual drum. At the pedestal's center is a lively scene of a phoenix midflight above a flowering peony blossom, set in low relief within a simple medallion form. A scene of tender affection, the phoenix here represents a lover, while the peony represents its beloved. Extolling the virtues of love and benevolence, this hand-carved display stand is the perfect way to elevate a plant or precious item, indoors or out.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
