Well-dressed ladies and spritely children engage in domestic pastimes in this brilliantly detailed porcelain vase. An example of wucai, or “five colors,” ware, this form of multi-colored porcelain begins with a piece that has already been fired with an underglaze of blue. The object is then overglazed with a variety of colors. Like this vase, wucai porcelain made during the latter Qing dynasty was often decorated with finely decorated motifs carefully outlined to give them a vivid quality.

“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.”
