This unique glazed jar was hand crafted in northern China over a century ago, during the Qing Dynasty. It is decorated with stunningly detailed relief designs—the flowers have individualized petals, the cherry blossom branches are finely textured, and pattern around the rim is delicately scalloped. It is glazed inside and out which indicates it was likely originally used for fermenting foods--possibly even the delicacies that are known as 100 year old eggs.

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.”
