This unique baluster or temple jar was hand formed and painted with a lotus motif in the Zhejiang region of China during the early 20th century. These jars were often used to store and transport spices, tea, medicinal herbs and even sweetmeats during Chinese New Year. It was customary for the recipient to return the jar filled with different delicacies.

“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.”
