This hand-carved wooden fragment was originally a decorative element of ornate Qing-dynasty furniture or architecture. Colored by gilt pigments over an underlayer of red lacquer, the fragment depicts a silk brocade ball, commonly depicted alongside fu dog lions to symbolize high rank or power. The embroidered ball is flanked by chrysanthemum blossoms and tied with a long flowing ribbon, a sign of longevity. Elevated by a custom steel display mount, the storied fragment adds bright color and iridescence to a bookcase or table arrangement.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

“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.”
