This early 20th-century garden stool from China's Hebei province has the proportions of a traditional drum-form stool, but its hexagonal shape and waisted ends make it an unusual find. Although the dark glaze appears perfectly even from afar, a closer look reveals its heavily crazed and beautifully irregular texture. The dark brown glaze spills over panels decorated in low relief, depicting a bat, a symbol of happiness, and the shou symbol for longevity. Traditionally used as a place to rest one’s feet, a stool like this is perfect as a garden seat or a small side table indoors or out.

“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.”
