This Peking glass vase has a graphic design of cranes, clouds, and pine branches in vivid green. Clouds represent heaven while pine and cranes, thought to live very long lives, represent longevity. The art of Peking glass originated in the Imperial Forbidden City during the reign of Emperor Kangxi (1662-1722). The making of Peking glass starts with a one-color glass base, which is carefully dipped into contrasting colored glass, just one layer at a time. Carving the dipped glass to reveal layers of other colors underneath is itself a highly skilled art form.

“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.”
