The form of this 19th century porcelain vase is called "phoenix tail" because of the way its flared mouth and slender waist mimic the shape of the bird. The vibrant landscape leaps off the cream field, offering a glimpse of an idealized scene of the time. A beautifully dressed woman attends her children as they play in a Qing dynasty garden. Chinese porcelain became known worldwide for its beauty and craftsmanship. Precise forms and detailed decorations set the standard for ceramicists across the globe.

“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.”
