Over a century of healers grinding herbs with a pestle for traditional Chinese medicine smoothed the interior of this mid-19th century stone apothecary mortar. The ring around the top of the exterior was hand-carved to add a flourish, imitating the hoop of a barrel. At the gallery, we love the simplicity of doming moss in the recess and, suddenly, such a storied vessel begins a new chapter.

“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.”
