Sunny and bright, this early 20th century garden seat is bursting with life. Intricately decorated in high relief, the ceramic stool bears cartouche panels of lotus flowers, symbols of purity, and peony blossoms, symbols of love and affection. A pattern of boss-head nails rings the top and bottom, resembling those used to stretch the skin on an actual drum, and two guardian protectors serve as decorative handles. Cloaked in a vibrant apricot glaze, the stool lends beautiful warmth and vitality to its surroundings, and can be used as a low seat or side table indoors or out.
