This early 20th-century jar was hand-sculpted in southern China and decorated with lion dogs and pine trees, symbols of strength and longevity. It was intended as a pickling container, used to preserve many eggs in a particular preparation. Glazed inside and out, the jar could have also been used to store water, rice, and other foods. Today, this monumental vessel makes for a fantastic planter, perfect for a young sapling or a display of lush greenery.

“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.”
