This hand-painted panel, laden with meaning, was once an interior panel of a large cabinet. The young boy is dressed in a traditional red apron. Children were a popular motif in Chinese artwork. Prospective parents looked to them as symbols of good luck to encourage healthy pregnancies. We acquired this panel from a large collection of painted panels found outside of Beijing.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
