Painted on polished pinewood, a pair of admiring birds perch on a cherry blossom branch. Cocking its head in a characteristically birdlike manner, the top bird gazes at its friend below it, symbolizing “double happiness.” Possibly created on the occasion of a marriage, the panel was painted in the port city of Canton (today called Guangzhou) in the early 20th century.

“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.”
