Tear catchers have been used for centuries to show remorse, guilt, love and grief. Used throughout the Roman empire, mourners filled glass bottles with their tears, and placed them in tombs as a symbol of their respect for the deceased. In ancient Persia, when a sultan returned from battle, he checked his wives’ tear catchers to see who among them had wept in his absence and missed him the most.

“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.”
