This 19th century petite bronze vase was intricately cast with finely detailed mythical dragons circling its neck. The Chinese dragon is a powerful symbol of good fortune and was often used to show rank and power. Dragons also represent relief and abundance and are thought to bring rain to parched lands. A fine vase like this would have been a collector's treasure originally used for ceremonies and rituals.

“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.”
