This lidded metal vessel was originally used to store tung oil in a provincial home in China's Shanxi province. The container would have been kept close at hand to replenish oil lamps throughout the home. The jar's tall, slender form and gracefully arched handle give it a unique sculptural presence, and an aged patina adds rustic texture to modern interiors.

“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.”
