This sculptural stone post was hand-carved in the 18th-century from a solid block of limestone. The column is crowned with a lotus bud - a symbol of purity and perfection. Trailing vines carved in low relief wrap around the base, dotted with raised carvings of four-petal blossoms. The post was likely part of a taller marker that stood outside the home of a wealthy merchant in northern China over two centuries ago.

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.”
