Chinese porcelain jars were initially used to ship and store ginger and other spices. Later porcelain in these forms became popular as pure luxury items. This early 20th-century baluster jar is a great example: its rounded body, high shoulders, and domed lid were all carefully crafted by Qing Dynasty artisans and then painted by hand with loosely rendered chrysanthemums.

“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.”
