When we first saw these vases we assumed them to be traditional early 20th century porcelains. On further investigation we found them to be a pair of ceramic ginger jars that an inspired 19th-century soul tested their own methods on. They are painted with a "sang-de-boeuf" field and phoenix and peonies, combined offering a blessing of prosperity, peace and benevolence. The materials, techniques, and imagery are an absolutely unique folk art find in our 20 years of collecting.

“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.”
