The fish on this hand-painted 19th-century provincial plate represent a blessing for wealth. Chinese symbols take on added meaning and nuance when combined with other motifs. The blue lines around the fish suggest water, which together would offer the wish "to be as content as a fish in water.” This plate is mounted for display on a custom iron base.

“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.”
