This 19th-century round basin was carved by hand from a solid block of limestone, and like many Chinese designs, has an elegantly simple form. In China, rock as an element is classified as "yang" because it is strong, hard, durable, and "male." It is an element that is well balanced in traditional gardens by delicate flowers and lush greenery. A small drainage hole through its base turns this beautifully aged stone basin into the perfect garden planter.

“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.”
