Once used on a provincial Chinese farm to hold water or animal feed, this early 20th-century stone trough is celebrated today for its organic form and rustic authenticity. Hand-carved from solid limestone, this rectangular trough exists on a slight tilt, exaggerated by its asymmetrical form. The trough has been carved with a shallow basin, rounded underside, and chiseled surface texture.

The rim of the trough curves up and down in a wave-like pattern, softened by the touch of many hands over the years. The surface of the stone has weathered with time, resulting in natural erosion and neutral color variation. A drainage hole is carved into one side, making the large trough ideal as a statement garden planter or unexpected sink basin.

“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.”
