Over four hundred years ago, these rare stone finials once sat high on the roof of a late Ming-dynasty building. Hand-carved in Shanxi province, they offer a rare glimpse of a bygone era, as many historic buildings in China have been torn down to make way for new construction. Each finial is carved to resemble a bountiful pile of ripe fruit - one with peaches, symbols of immortality, and one with persimmons, symbols of luck and good fortune. Whether flanking a doorway or tucked within the lush greenery of a mature garden, these stone sculptures bring a bit of magic and wonder to any space.

“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.”
