This vintage iron mortar from China's Shanxi province was cast in low relief with a delicate chrysanthemum in bloom. Originally used in a traditional apothecary to create herbal medicines, we love this piece as an unexpected vase or cachepot.

“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.”
