Shaped according to millennia-old prototypes fired in Bronze Age, this early 20th-century ceramic jar from northern China once stored wine and spirits made from rice and grains. Thrown on a wheel, the jar shows the subtle ribs associated with the process. Small loop handles complete its perfect proportions. Weathered by time, the glaze has rubbed off in spots, earning the jar a fantastic surface texture highly sought after by those who yearn for “wabi sabi”.

What They're Saying

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
