Hand puppets, like this one from China’s Zhejiang region, have been a popular form of entertainment for centuries. In the late-19th/early-20th century this tiny robed gentleman probably entertained throngs of people as he strolled the courtyards of miniature palaces or rescued maidens from undesirable suitors.

“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.”
